Default Spare location on Suburbans?

It appears there wasn't one. Mine had a welded in bracket to hold one just behind the passenger door encroaching on the space to pass to the rear seat. I didn't like it and removed it.

Where did users put spares?

Both of my Suburbans have their spares mounted underneath the rear floor, between the differential and rear bumper.

Either the trailer hitch took away the under floor spare option on mine, or there never was room for 17.5" wheels there. The fuel tank is behind the rear end, so it'd have to be between the fuel tank and the bumper. I'll have to see if it'll fit there since I removed the trailer hitch.

No sign of any mounting hardware or holes for spare mounting under the floor, and I've never seen any mounting hardware displayed or for sale. The only hole is for the trailer hitch which could have been the spare mount.
