I'm in South Florida and local pickup is preferred. If not will ship for actual cost.
I noticed you are using that webbed cover to hold the spare in place. In an accident the spare tire could become a missile hazard because that cover is not strong enough to secure the spare in place. You had better hope the rear seat latches are strong enough to keep the seat locked in the upright position.

I secured my spare tire with heavy duty cargo straps that pass through all four eyelets in the trunk.
