Does the spare tire need to be the exact same size, as all others? in an emergency situation? Would another size tire work?

I would think in an emergency (to get you out of harms way, say off the freeway so you don't get hit) an off size tire would work. But, with a locking differential, you wouldn't want to drive on hard serfaces or very far or very fast. It also depends on the size difference.

Just my $.02, any one else?

I believe that if you will be in 4wd then they sould be the same diameter.

You can use a smaller tire within reason but keep in mind that on the front the steering will pull in the direction of the smaller tire. If you have a locker or L/S in the rear then you can really mess the locker by running a smaller tire on the rear. I'd reccomend a same size spare . That way you will always good to go. Just get a good used tire for 20.00.
