If you have a write up on something, let us know and we'll add it to the list.

Didn't see this on the list. I don't have a write up but have performed the mod following the linked video to stash a 33" tire so that it reaches just even with the bottom of a tow bar(hitch) if you have one installed. Incidentally, I also stow the spare with about 5 psi to get a little more squish.
