Getting ready for wheelin trips that are farther away. I’ve been planning to put the spare in the tub, but in a way that saves some space and that allows me to keep my powered subwoofer while allowing me to swap the rear seat in and out without changing the location of the powered sub.

Obviously the sub had to come off the bottom of the rear seat. This has been a good solution for me for over 5 years, but you can’t remove the rear seat and keep the sub in the Jeep, so it was time to sort it out.

If you really want to keep the back seat, you can stand the tire up at the back against the tub next to the tailgate. Remove the ‘back’ of the seat and only use the butt cushion part. It’s a tight fit but it’ll work, probably wouldn’t want to sit back there a lot time but short trips.

I don’t have a pic of that relationship. The rear seat is back in now. 😏

Maybe mount a bar between the roll bars with a T and a wheel spacer on the end right at the hub. Bolt up with a few lug nuts. Would that work?

I thinking more like the xj mount and run something through one of the lug holes back to the fender. That and a strap over the tire with some cleats https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XPVVS5C/?tag=wranglerorg-20

The lowest lug hole is ~14" high. The highest part of the inner fender wheel well is ~12.5". If I make a bracket and bolt it to the inner fender I could raise it 1.5" and then add a swinging threaded bar like the XJ has and run it through the lug hole and use a hand tightened bolt. Maybe?

Wife and I went to the ORV tonight. I needed to re-spool my winch. Line was pinched about 25 feet in. I was a bit peeved about it since my son was supposed to spool it correctly. It’s all good now. When we were done my wife was still in the drivers seat. I asked her if she wanted to drive. She said, “Yeah, teach me.” I showed her the hand throttle, got her in 4L, locked the rear. She started easy stuff. She was amazed. Huge smiles. She’s wheeled with me before, but never driven. She couldn’t believe what it could do. She called it a beast! 🤣 I think she’s sold. She wanted to have sex right then and there. 🤣 She said I can never sell it. It was a good time. I actually enjoyed riding for once. I’d just tell her the line and after awhile I turned her loose! It is crazy how capable they are. Good times.

I had always thought of TJs as capable of a lot, but aphrodisiac is a new one 😂

Sounds like you're going to be TJ shopping again, expensive habit X4
