Jeep comander tire carrier

So since there are not vary many options for a larger sized spare tire on the jeep commander I decided to make my own that sits inside of the jeep on the frame from my 3rd row seating seeing as I do not use it much so here it is

I was able to get that size in my stock spare location. And yes I have a hitch. The trick is to deflate the tire. No big deal as I carry a compressor

But a compressor takes up a LOT less space than that wheel and mount...
