Ladies and gentlemen, gentlemen and ladies. I hope everyone is well and breathing much easier since the special elite have given us permission to remove masks, but I digress. My buddy's son had a 2001 LS 2wd Rodeo that I finally pulled the trigger on and I have to admit, it's a sharp smooth driving, sexy piece of machinery. It's got 298k miles and the only issue is that it slips gears when you start up and try to go too fast. But after about 20 mins of driving, it's not bad at all. Anyone dealt with this? Ok, so the real reason I'm here. Im wanting to find a spare tire holder but I'm having no luck at all anywhere. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful and tire size also. Im looking at 265/70r16 but is that really the biggest (don't care to go wider just a bit taller) tire that will fit? And if you or anyone you know have put a 2" - 3" lift on your 2wd let me know what kit you used.

Thanks for all of the help, it's greatly appreciated!!!

Just put different springs in the rear. Search around here I don't know the specifics but I know trooper springs will give you a few inches. Then crank the front torsion bars to match the rear as you see fit.

As the transmission goes...rebuild, reman or junkyard. Or ditch the auto and get a 5 speed. Mua5 or AR5.

I'm RWD LS also but have the under hanging storage for my spare.
Are you looking for a rear door spare mount?

OEM was not a swing type but a fixed stamping bolted to the rear door/gate.
