I was wondering what the largest sixe spare tire I can fit on the gate if I take the third brake light off.

generally a 32" is the largest that'll fit the stock tire carrier without modifying the bumper or installing a body lift. but - i just got a 33x10.5" to fit on my fiance's tj - stock mount and no body lift. i did have to redrill the lug bolt holes, grind off the old ones, and pull new bolts through it to mount up. it's on a stock grizzly wheel though so it all fits snugly against the rubber bumpers. oh, just put 2.5" pieces of 3/4" sch40 pvc under the tail light bracket and then replace the mounting bolt with longer ones. there is enough play in the wiring to allow for the extra distance.
