So, is it general consensus that using the Hinge reinforcement kit with the stock mount is sufficient for a 35" tire/wheel? Not sure if I should spring for the $200 mount unless I go up to a 37" tire...

(thanks)

Yes that's how I run it. I have 4.5 inches of backspacing on a 35 and the spare clears my rear bumper. When I ordered Northridge was very helpful in letting me know about fitment.

I ordered both because the stock one is like paper compared to the TF one.

The TF carrier is worth the money. You can adjust the height of the spare and hug it up tight against the tailgate.

I'll be on one of these like white on rice when they make an adapter that handles 5 x5.5" BP.
