    I don't remember if M100's have the rear stabilizing leg under the rear bed. If yours lacks it, put the spare under the rear bed. If it has the leg, put it underneat the front of the trailer, back far enough to the landing gear can pivot.

    You can either mount it to a crossbar that has a mounting face with studs and use lugnuts. Or see if you find a crank and cable mechanism from a pickup or Chevy Astro Van from a wrecking yard.

    Or you could put in a pair of crossbars low enough to act as a "shelf".

    Hmmm, I think this will touch the ground and act as a shovel. No?
