We dig this spare tire mounting style. You can leave the upper spare off if you need more bed space. The rear Ford 9-inch was trussed and tabbed by Chris, who had it gold zinc-plated after he was finished. “The zinc plating keeps it from rusting, and it lets me easily see any cracks that develop.” After a repair is completed, a shot of clear coat paint keeps the 9-inch looking as good as ever.
