Ok, I'm officially calling myself a ******* on a public forum. When I bought the wheels and tires I just assumed that I would need the extension bracket to mount the oversize spare. Welp, with JLC08JK's suggestion I tried it without. And, of course, it fits. It's snug but it fits. Of course I still think the solution is to add more support to the bottom, get the TF bracket or have a carrier.
Thanks, JIMBOX gonna do that carriage bolt mod and bumpstops until I get the TF Bracket.
