I was going to mention that myself, actually. The mags love to get pictures of our stupidity because it sells more issues I think you get a t-shirt or $50 or something out of it too. You're a shoe-in, 4wd or not. It wouldn't be the first time they've had a 2wd "Whoops"

Re: Spare tire Mounts

OK, here's a couple thoughts on the subject:
On my Ford pickup, there's a support bar or stamping that is used to hold the spare under the rear gas tank.
Large bolt at one end (fixed in place), with another bolt like a giant eyebolt at the other.
Kinda copy that, but I gotta tell ya, it'll be heavy and pretty awkward....easier than getting it up/down from a roof, tho.

I've also seen a 'winch'-type setup on some Japanese-manufactured pickups.
Basically for them you use the lug wrench as a winch, and crank the tire up or down from where it's hung on a cable.
In the skoolie setup, adapt a winch from a boat trailer; use plastic-coated steel cable and the appropriate fasteners etc. to suspend the wheel assembly. Since a winch can easily hold 500 pounds, a bus wheel shouldn't be a big problem.
Hang the tire under the rear behind the pumpkin if you have the space.
