Tire rotation (5 wheels)

I'm putting on some BFG MT's on my Jeep Commander With QDII.
I have 5 equal tires and rims. What kind of rotation pattern should I use ?

If you plan on keeping the same tire size..I would never put the spare into rotation. I would just front back and back to front.
I had a 2006 GC, but did not keep the turd long enough to rotate the tires.
Users manual would be best source.

I am sure there is some safety rule stating how long a tire can be exposed to the elements before it should be thrown away.

Rearward cross with the drivers front going to the spare and the spare going to the passengers rear spot.

Rotating the spare in is NOT a bad idea at all. Especially considering how sensitive our diffs are to tire diameter. If your tires were worn, and you got a flat, using a spare with full tread could actually do some harm. Rotation pattern is different for 4wheel drive than 2wheel. I don't have the pattern memorized, whenever I need to know it, I google it. You should check there.
