So I’m running 31x10.5s all the way around on 10” wide wheels. Considering getting a spare to match. Will it fit under the bed in the spare tire housing? Seen the ZR2 will fit it, not sure if the housing for the tire is different size on the 2WD.

You could try one the the tire/wheels you have now. Not sure I would do the though. That's a lot of weight tucked up there. Rusting cable is always a concern.

Yeah I was already considering getting a new spare tire hoist if I was going to go that route

What I did on my 2500HD, which is typically salt belt rusty, was after cranking the big heavy spare up on the skinny cable was to tie a piece of nylon webbing to the frame on both sides after running it through a couple openings in the wheel. Just in case the cable ever let go it won't be able to fall and go through somebodies windshield. Just used a long piece off an old ratchet strap that was rusted beyond useful. I did make sure the nylon was in good shape.
