The spare tire resides inside the confines of the rear cargo compartment, providing a useful void for stowing items such as tow straps, gloves and a lug nut wrench. The extensive cage structure was built by XXX-Traction and features 1¾-inch DOM tubing and a durable gloss-black powdercoat finish. All interior surfaces have been coated with Ultimate Liner applied by John’s auto body shop. Notice the handy storage area for liquids along the driver’s side. A dry-food storage cooler is contained under the spare tire along with a plastic bin for spare parts and tools. A custom nylon tie-down made by Mac’s Custom Tie-Downs secures the spare to the cage system.
