I don't see why not! We would be glad to have you and your uncle at the rally. You could always say that you were interested in diesels. Heck, the president of FOKISD (the Ford Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Super Duty club) owns a V-10!

I have just gone through this dilema,I have a F450 with a bigfoot 3000 camper.
You must not put some contraption on the front end as this cuts down the air flow to the engine.
I used to have a small container which plugged into my hitch receiver at the back,I modified the container to now be a 7 foot accross carrier and about 3 foot out ,so a large 30 in diameter spare sits on this and i have doors that fold down to access the spare and whatever else i want to store (ie a barbique).I did not know how to imbed a photo here or I would have.
I added 2 more hitch receivers to the rear of the truck,so this container plugs into 3 hitch receivers ,lots of strength.
Its going to be great for the spare ,levelling planks and maybe a fishing pole

We have a front hitch from J C Whitney with the tire carring adapter. We have driven 100,000 miles with a tire in front with out an over heating problem.

we don't do anything but we do it real well.

Take your jack handle to a welding shop and get them to cut you a short piece of stock the same diamiter so you can use a rachet wrench to lower and raise the spare. That worked on my Dodge. Maybe other makes use something different. Rob
