Spare tire TJ

I'm running 31x10.50 couragia mt's on 15x8 stock aluminum wheels on my 05 TJ. ( has a 2" lift probably rough country) Just bought the jeep. Problem I have is the spare is just a stock 15x7 steel rim and a stock tire. I'm gonna pick up another aluminum wheel and tire to match. Just wondering how my spare tire carrier will work with this and what, if anything, I will need to do to mount it without messing up my tailgate. I just don't wanna get stuck without a spare. I'm planning on getting a rear bumper in a year or so but until then I'm stuck with the stock carrier.

You need a extended Bumpstop on the tailgate. The door won't be able to support
a bigger tire and less backspaced wheel In the long run.
