Default spare tire mounting/ good soft top for 1st gen runner

I have a couple questions the first being where is a good place to mount the spare tire on a 1st gen runner without having to weld anything. I'm gonna have 35s soon and i need a place to put the spare. I cant put it in the back because it takes up too much room for camping and i have the top off so im running out of options im thinking the rear tailgate like on the 2nd gens?

I'm also interested on hearing if anyone knows where to get a good cheap soft top.

Heres a pick of the back sorry its a little blurry

Do you have a hitch? I recall someone posting up a hitch mounted spare tire carrier that seemed decent some time back...You could use that when you need the space in the back for camping.

You will get better responses to your threads if you ask one question at a time.

You have a tail light out.

Sooner or later your bro's in the back are gonna get hurt. (See what parenthood does to you)

What do you have for recovery points?

35's=more $$

Used hardtops are cheep. Good soft tops are not.

You will need to stick it in the hitch if you don't want to weld, and can't stuff it underneath, or in the bed.

Won't be great for wheeling, but you can get to camp that way, then toss it in the bed for wheeling once you have set up camp.

The cheapest soft top I know of is from softopper. Made in Boulder, my buddy has one, and it is pretty nice. right around 700 bucks. Can Back is another option, but its more money.

I realized its out when i posted that pic i got a new one today.

I dont have a hitch on there but i might be able to get just a receiver welded on to the bumper i think that would do it?

A reciever welded to the bumper would be fine for the tire. I wouldn't recommend towing any sort of trailer with it, but a tire would be fine.
