Will the spare tire location accommodate a 265/70/17 or 275/70/17?

I'm going up to 265/70-17 Monday and buying the same size tire as a spare too.
I just looked and it's going to be tight.
There's a leaf bracket or whatever that is about an inch from the 265/65-17 spare.
A 70 series tire is 1.05" bigger diameter.

I asked this question on Tacomaworld and someone replied...

I have a 285/70/17 spare under mine...fits great. It's a little tight and it doesn't go all the way up, but its tucked enough that it doesn't stick out much. Also, there is a DIY to cut out two tabs to make more room. I didn't do that, but what I have works

I want to see a pic of what it looks like with the 285 stuffed up in there. If it looks good and stays secure I will get a 285 spare tire.

PICS PLEASE!!!!! and testimonials as to how secure that tire is. Does it clunk around since there is nothing there to secure it anymore?
