Spare tire removal - remove the mount?

I really do not want or need the spare on the back of the truck. If I take a road trip, I will either mount it back, or throw it in a trailer I pull, or throw it on the roof rack.


I have not pulled it yet but see 4 bolts on the door.

Anyone else removed the spare with the mount and what did you do to pretty it up a little?

I did a search "spare tire removal" and "spare mount removal" and came up with nothing.

Depends on how committed you are to doing this. Body Shop would probably charge you about $400.00 to make it like it was never there. Other than that, some round head bolts with touch up paint would do the trick.

Re: Spare tire removal - remove the mount?

this is the fastest way to make the FJ go from cool to ugly. The rear gets kinda ugly when you take that tire off....

If you squint it looks like super mario with sunglasses.

If you look straight at it you will go blind.
