Spare Tire Location

It's really tempting to put side mount spares on my truck just because I like the look, but I'm at odds with myself to cut on it order to modify it. I'm trying to come up with a way to incorporate them into the flatbed so they'll look 'authentic'. Since I have to refit the bed to the truck, modifying the bed wouldn't go too much against my grain of maintaining 'originality',

Put it up under the back of the bed where they go originally. Get the hanger and bolt it on. Original and looks appropriate.

DPLA (Digital Library of America) Check out Pender Grocery Delivery Truck. Interesting side mount on an early AA.
