33's on a Trooper spare tire rack & key access

Postby LT1coupe » Sun Dec 04, 2016 8:44 pm

I'm sure one of you has done this, but I didn't find it in my searches.I just put a 285/75-16 spare on & could not access the rear door key. After looking at possible solutions I decided to turn the spare tire rack upside down to offset the wheel farther to the left. I had to notch for the windshield wiper arm but it looks like a winner. The tire hits the corner of the bumper step, but I'll either trim the bumper cover or let it sit there. I did have to elongate the holes slightly, but after bolting it down the tire barely contacts the bumper, I believe it's a non issue.

Clears the key & handle very well

does the mounting hole pattern on the rear door still match up when you turn the spare rack upside down or 90 degrees? I want to do the same thing to fit my new 33"s and currently have a smaller tire mounted.

Upside down the top right & bottom left holes line up. The other two are about a half hole off. I drilled them all slightly bigger & slotted two holes slightly.

I am having the same issue, and was trying to figure out a solution, thanks for sharing this simple mod!!
Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.
If all else fails, give it more gas. It may not solve the problem, but it will end the anticipation.
