I think it fits, you'll just be unable to run the cover.

You'll need to add some metal spacers drilled to accommodate the bolts -- otherwise it will hit the bumper. See attached photo. Not using mine anymore since I downsized to 265/75/16 from 285s.

On a related note, the PO of my truck made this mod so I have never seen the way a spare normally attaches to the stock tire carrier. Can someone snap a photo and share it here, please?
