I was feeling like I needed to Mod something today,
So I decided to Delete the spare tire. This was on my list since I bought the FJ. As far as not having a spare tire, I am use to not having one in My M3 Or 997, And I have AAA, Air compressor and Rubber plug kit, So Adios Spare Tire.

I think it would look better with the plastic cover off
I thought that at first, but I took a few pictures at different angles and decided against it.
Plus I had to cover the other bolts, The Wire for the back up camera and the hump thats on the door. I believe this is the best option, Plus the rear door is noticably lighter, my field of vision is better, And I really think the truck looks cleaner without the Spare.
I know it's hard for some to go without a spare, But I ran 4years without A spare on my H2 Trk and only had to remove a few nails, But never lost air completely. The only time I consider carrying the Spare is on long trips, Like vegas. Other than that I have become quite accustom to not having a Spare on any of my Vehicles. Plus A 80 LB Diet is start in the right direction.

Yeah, I thought about that when I Noticed most of my German Imports had no Spare, But 15yrs later I've gotten use to it.
Plus I don't off road, And for those that do, That might be a concern.
But you can always carry it in side if you needed to.
Ahh, yeah not that big a deal then.
