storing junk in your spare tire's wheel?

Recommended Posts

with the Teraflex spare tire carrier and factory wheel, i have a fairly large (but odd-shaped) empty space inside the wheel that's easy to access...

 

anyone storing anything in there?

i was first thinking spare fluids, but i don't want to put a bunch more weight back there... so i'm trying to think of something reasonably light that would fit just right or a small bag that could attach there. would have to be something that can get dusty and wet, or else have a waterproof bag/box.

 

maybe a bag with recovery straps and shackles?

 

 

on my WJ, i had the spare laying on the floor inside and so i kept a bunch of spare parts in the wheel:

so who's got what tucked away in their spare tire?

I keep tools wrapped in an old factory spare tire cover under my spare tire & secure it to the floor with bungee cords. If I need access on the trail I prop the tire up with my cooler to gain access to my junk.

Recovery gear is the only items, that I would think to put there.

I think this is a good idea:

I'd concider something like that if we end up centering my spare tire carrier when we reconfigure the rear bumper - otherwise I think it would hang off the passenger side too much, block the taillight and get caught up on stuff
