    I'm going to carry a spare, because im a minimum of 5 hrs from home anytime on a trail, but may look into building a mount off the back seat harness bar. Something that clamps on, so I can pull it if I don't like the end result. To me, a spare is a necessary evil. I hate the extra weight, but need to have one. Of the things that break, where does having to change a tire in the field stack up? I haven't wheeled enough, because I have only sliced a sidewall once, but didn't notice it until I was back home.

    Good call! Going on a trail, any trail without a spare is just plain stupid! No matter how built-up your jeep is, or isn't, a flat tire can happen to anyone, at anytime. As others have said, don't be that guy.

    42" Trep Sticky full spare on an AllSouth Autosports custom mount. Fits behind rear seats and under full oem soft/hard top just fine.


    On Suicide Hill in AreaBFE Moab.

I was thinking about starting another thread about what spares and tools people carry, but had planned to search the history first.

    .....so who in Houston wants to trade a month old Evo Pro Series tire carrier for a fulll size swing out?
    Could maybe find the right buyer at 600 and only spend 400 out of pocket on the swing out carrier. I like the look of spareless and have thought about keeping the 37in the rear but tailgate won't close with the smitty bags. Thought about making a deck that sits above the spare and have tools. But that's a different story with a 40"

    Big Prince, that is the first JK I've seen running 42" Trep stickies on this site. Do you have street meats as well and do you have a build thread? I'm curious if you went sky high to clear the tires, trimmed the heck out of the body or limited up travel.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
