Quite honestly I don't know why someone would. No sense in having anything protruding from the side of your vehicle to get you hung up in tight spaces

They did it for speed and ease in a combat situation. Well at least on the Wolf

I was parking downtown a few weeks ago and as I got out of the truck this kind looking, older gentleman holding his wife's hand stops and looks at me and says "Why do you put your spare tire on your hood? That's f&@king stupid!" And as he wanders off he turns to his wife and mutters "what an idiot."

What are you guys talking about? theyve been hanging the spare tire off the side of pickups since they were invented.

Spare tire outside of the bed is why they put it on the hood, side, fender, or back door. It's to save room for the inside because a tire doesn't care where you put it. Militaries don't care about sun wear to save the tire versus the space saved on the inside.

I believe that is just the jk8 conversion currently available through mopar to convert a 2007-2016 JK Unlimited to a pickup.

For instance: http://m.ebay.com/itm/Jeep-Wrangler-...900?nav=SEARCH
