Looking for oversize tire carrier

I'm running 35's on 18" rims. The stock tire carrier is a flimsy piece of crap and a weld cracked. I realize it's a lot of wheel to hang off the back but wondered if anyone knows of a durable and reliable tire carrier? I'm a welder by trade and will fix the stock bracket for now but need something better and don't feel like fabricating something from scratch.

There is a whole bunch out there. I run the or fab one. It doesn't attach to the gate at all. I like it separate.

teraflex has a mount that replaces the stock carrier with heavy duty hinges and mounting plate. Think its supposed to be good for upto 35" tires

I have the AEV rear bumper with tire carrier, but you can use it with a stock bumper too. It can hold up to a 40" tire.

The Teraflex Adjustable Tire Carrier replaces the factory carrier and spreads out the load on the tailgate to carry the weight more efficiently. They claim it's good up to a 37" tire. A lot of people like to run it with the Teraflex Hinged Tire Carrier to get the weight completely off of the tailgate. Let me know if you're interested in either or both and I'll get you set up with a quote!

The AEV carrier works like a charm, opens with the tailgate, as noted mounts on the stock carrier and has several options available.
