Bestop Rear Bumper & Tire Carrier

Has anyone purchased this combo. I have been looking at bumper/carrier combos and this looks like the lowest priced one I can find. When I compared this one to the AEV bumper/carrier there is one major difference. The AEV model has the tire carrier mounted to the frame, and the Bestop doesn't. The Bestop's carrier support is welded to the top of the bumper. Note-the Bestop bumper is more beefy, and doesn't have any plastic. I was wondering how this Bestop bumper/ carrier is working out for some people.

The Ace bumper looks nice, and it has reverse lights too. The price is right too! Thanks for the info.

Can you post a picture of how the carrier connects to the tailgate? Doesn't tell on their website.
