Moved spare tire.

After reading another poster here, I decided to move the spare tire from under the A-frame, to inside the pass through storage.

I thought the reasoning wads sound, and in fact found a hint of rust already forming on the rim. Water collects and has no place to drain, until it evaporates away. Thus, rust begins to form.

It fits fine inside the front pass thru storage compartment.

The dealer removed mine to install the WDH and I told them to leave it off. It's a pain in the rear end to re-install it under the A-Frame so I'm throwing it in the back of the truck for now. I plan to add a tire winch like a pickup or SUV has so I can make it easier to raise and lower.
