front bumper tire mount

[Don] I would like to move my spare tire on my 1985 F240, 4x4, to the front bumper. Do any of you have experience with doing this? Is there apt to be an overheating heating problem with the front mount? Do any of you have suggestions on dealers for the mounting hardware?

Thanks. Don P

[Gary B] Hi Don, I have the spare on the front of my 88 F-250 diesel and haven&#039t had any problems of any kind, can&#039t tell any differnce in temps, also installed one on a 1993 F-350 with a 460, when we went to Alaska in 96 and had no problems, no heating. I fabricated both brackets myself, if you have a local repair shop or blacksmith shop they could make you one Happy trails GB
