    yes but I carry the tire as a requirement for participation.... I fully agree with you, but fighting the system really isn't worth the time.

    time for the spare.... in some of the things I do, we're required to haul a full sized spare.... I don't agree but I like doing that - so time to make one that doesn't rattle



    These are cool, but I don't think I'll use them... or maybe...


    finally something the warn winch can lift




    the only issue is my tow points are higher than the spare... I could use the hitch, but that isn't there for recovery.



    it's really not as low as it seems from the back.... still, If I carry a spare, it will be smaller. I have patch kits, tube, welding wire and dowels to fix a flattened tire - if I need to use a spare, I can put it on the front and unlock the hub (or pull a shaft on the rear)

    This! BTW - Beatles, Bob Seger (growing up in SE MI), Jefferson Airplane, etc, etc. I like the Dead OK but was never a fanboy.

    I know little of the BGs since Mining Disaster. So they stole Lennon-McCartney lyrics?

    I pictured you more as a Dead Head, not a Bee Gees type (nothing wrong with that, but it wasn't the image I had)

    Having everything inside where it can be safe when you walk away from the Cruiser is a good idea! Those jacks get stolen all the time while people are parked and away from their rigs.
