what swing out tire carrier/rear bumpers do you suggest?

So i just sold my custom made 160 pound swing out tire carrier that was ripping my rear crossmember from the sheer force when going over bumps.

Well i am now looking for a new one and wanted to know your suggestions. I saw the smittybilt one on a friends yj today and looks really study and not too heavy but heard they are known to rattle a bit.

I really like the look of the fold down tire carrier that i think gen right makes and seems like it takes a lot of pressure off a spindle on one side of the bumper.

i am on a bit of a budget so warn is out of my range.

thanks for any insight!!

I'm happy with my smittybilt. I have a 35x14.50 swamped in it. And yea it did rattle. Just use the supplied bump stop and it will be gone. Hocky pics work too. It was a PITA to install. You pretty much have to drop the fuel tank.

Same here, planning on ordering the Smittybuilt SRC series rear bumper with the swing out tire carrier for mine.
