I like the idea of a vertical mount in the bed. I don’t know if the height of the tire is too much to close the tonneau for the CT. which will be about 30 to 40 lbs. No way I want to be lifting it over the roof.
That's what I am aiming for. I have in mind an "L" bracket mounted to the deck and also to the forward bulkhead if the side anchor spot is a no-go due to cover conflict. I spec it's gonna be a "wide" L bracket from flat stock or maybe square tubing, something with some mass to it. I am handy with E6010 and a cap pass with 7018 rods. That baby ain't going nowhere and will be locked in place. While I am at it I should go ahead and fab it out of stainless steel in keeping with the overall theme of the vehicle.

Have a different concept, not ready to share yet. Need more concrete information what will be presented or not.
(But I've been in the aircraft/space industry for many years so those ideas will be adapted)

Jeep JK Wrangler owner here -- like the idea of the full spare being mounted on some type of heavy-duty, swing-out, rear-bumper-mounting design (like the Jeep picture above...)

I doubt he'll provide one as model 3 didn't come with one.
And I bought a spare wheel, jack & wheel spanner for my model 3 on E Bay.
No way do I have a truck with no spare wheel. Totally unacceptable to me.
Bad enough on a city car..... On a truck going off-road, won't even think of it.

When offroading with people, I have seen quite a few different spare tire options for Jeeps and other rigs. I looked at reviews for many more when building my dream Wrangler and Gladiator (on paper). Getting one that will hold a 44" Nitto Grappler is not an easy feat.

I have not see that particular one, but unless I really load the bed/Vault down, I will just keep a fullsize spare there. No reason to hang it off the tailgate or bumper.
