Making the best of spare space

I just whipped up this page to show you a trick I pulled off last year.
You can view the link for all the photos, here are a few:
It seemed like a waste of space to only have the spare tire in the tire well so I did a little MacGyvering to also fit in a jack, jack stand, lug wrench and jack plate.

It just requires a threaded rod and a jacking plate with a hole in it.

Wayne, pretty clever!

I'll have to keep that tip in mind for carrying bigger things in my little Argosy.
