    Going bigger and was wondering if I could fit a full spare where the previous spare is located? Anybody happen to know?

    Previously you couldn't fit anything much larger than stock unless you cut the legs that center the tire. I'm not too sure about the 3rd gen but I'm guessing it's the same.

    Biggest you can fit without modifying is 265/75/16
    You can’t fit a 285/70/17

    I've read some posts where they fit without much modding,but I've also read some where welding was required. Guess I'll see when everything comes in. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    It looks super close to the spring hanger on the driver side. The passenger side you have a exhaust hanger. Or I do on my truck

    I had my exhaust hanger moved over just a tad... only cost me $30 bucks and mine fits perfect now

    I cut the legs off my ‘16 and fit a 255/85/16 under there. Never had a problem.
