Spare tire relocate.

Agreed, What I have done is taken the spare tire mount that I removed from the back and modified it to fit into the truck bed ahead of the 5th wheel hitch. This did take some cuttin & welding of new metal so I could secure it to the truck bed, this I feel is the best resolve to my issue as will as being able to lock it into the bed. I have the XLite model so my nose of the unit does not stick deep into the bed giving me a clearance issue when turning. Thanks to all !

Jim

If you think your frame mounted receiver is strong enough you might get one of the double hitch extenders...one on top of the other. Use the top one for a spare carrier and the bottom one for whatever.

I did consider that, and I have no doubt about my receiver & the install. I just didn't like all that crud hanging off the back end of the unit. I wish I knew how to upload a picture on this " Chromebook" but I will work on it more this evening. Thanks for the ideas !
