I can see calling AAA if I was around town or something for a tow to my house, but if I'm 1,000 miles away from my spare tire, or out on a trail? I'd rather just have my spare with me for a quick fix instead of having to wait for a AAA tow (which can take forever - back when I had AAA I waited 3 hours once), then find a tire shop to hopefully patch the flat, or hope that they have a 255/70/18 Bridgestone Dueler A/T (or some other 32" tire) in stock to get it replaced. And I've never had a flat in my life either, but it'd still be piece of mind out on the road to have it with me.

I'm not sure what your tire size is so this may be a moot point.
I know you look into the bolt cutting & hitch grinding.
Here is a write-up by another on that mod from another forum that may convince you to try it. http://www.jeepsunlimited.com/forums...d.php?t=516836
If it does not work out you could always do the cargo mod with nothing lost.
I've tried to stuff my spare (255/70/18
) up in the stock spot, and it'd I don't think I can trim the bolts back far enough to get it in there without deflating it - which would make it useless since I don't have on-board air.
