Construction is an industry that needs trucks/vehicles to travel across large dirt construction sites without getting stuck. This typically means upgrading to a larger wheel width/diameter to create the largest possible surface area for the tire to cover while off-road. Managing to get a flat tire whether it is rolling a bead in the dirt from being aired down or running over objects such as nails/screws, it is always important to carry a spare tire that fits the application. This causes an increased need to safely lock down an oversized spare when the time comes for one. Most of the time a larger wheel/tire combo will not fit in the stock under bed mounting location. Creating a resolution for this scenario will need a fabricated part to allow for safe and organized storage while also not taking up needed bed space. The goal is to create a multipurpose and removable aftermarket spare tire carrier.
