XR a spare is for the weak hearted. Seriously one setup that let me retain my spare on the left side of the trunk. In my older pics on my web shots page you can see part of the divider that i used. Right now i have enough room to put the spare back in the trunk, but I don't want to lose the trunk space. I have 3 10" subs in the rear deck. I am located in NY too. Where are you from?
