I personally wouldn't do it for 2 reasons. First off is losing the bed space. Second is that I would be afraid of the tire cracking from constantly being exposed to the sun. But, it does look bad ass, and its your truck.

thats a good point but don't all tires face the sun constantly and i don't think that much bed space would b taken, i just need enough room to carry my guns and deer ha

and i bought one and id fab some mounting points or something

Your tires which are mounted see less sun, and they're in use. This keeps them pliable. If anything, get a cover for the tire.
