There was an episode on gears on tv for a 90's bronco that they put an aftermarket rear bumper that held I think was a 38 or 44, can't remember. But I know this, " where there's a will, there's a way".
I'm sure it can be modified to bolt to a pickup frame. I was actually wanting to do the same thing. I have a 78 shortbed that I mounted a bench seat in the back of the bed and have a tool box, so my 33 takes up wuts left of bed space.
I that one too, if I could modify the factory bronco to hold the 38.5" tire, without tearing the sheet metal up, that might.work by modding it. But if I yank my front huge bumper off the.front and put it out back...i would be able to mount a swing arm to it easy. That bumper would hold a 40 " plus tire for sure. Then I can have a new front bumper made how I want.
Im just afraid lll tear the sheetmetal on the fender with all the weight of the tire even with reinforcement....but hey, someone might have done it already to prove me wrong!! Lol! Jeff

Have you thought about a headache rack type mount? If you have it mount to the bed rails and not in the center of the bed, you could have the tire mounted vertically behinid the window, up off the floor of the bed. You'd loose the view out the back though.
