Moving spare tire, need advice.

Just received my new Steadyfast stabilizers. But in order to install it. I would need to move the spare tire on my Sierra 355QBQ 5er. It is located underneath the front between the front jacks. Wonder if anyone has done this mod and can give me an idea of what needs to b done. The dealer recommended I attach it to the back bumper. I would rather move it back a few feet from where it is. Thanks

I put mine underneath the bed. Pretty easy to get to if needed, but also out of the way.

I like the Lippert unit. The extra storage would be great for sewer hose. Thanks

Yes, this is the area. Mine is mounted flat against the bottom (on the outside). Very close to the edge, directly between the jacks.

Could you extend whatever is holding it back enough to clear the stabilizer?
