Bumper and tire carrier opinions

It's got my 35's and now nowhere to put the spare. So I am looking for a rear bumper tire carrier combo. I want a quality one well built. With the ability to add fuel can carriers, hi lift mount, cb antenna mount, and trail rack if wanted. What's your favorite/opinion? Thanks.

Well that narrows it down a tad.

Hanson also makes rear bumpers that you can add trail racks, masseuses, personal valets, etc to. See here:

Go with the poison spyder brawler one. Real quality bumper and has a really clean mount for the hi lift. Would have to make a cb mount though

I saw a poison sounder one online haven't seen one in person. But looked really cool in pictures.

I'm not sure how good they are but I'm looking at a LōD rear bumper that I'm thinking about getting.

I have a Highrock 4X4 by Bestop. It has a highlift jack mount and CB antenna mount. there are brackets for a fire extinguisher and something else I'm not sure of (might be able to attach fuel can brackets). A couple of features I like is that it has a brake light in the middle of the wheel and it opens with the tailgate.

Hitch mounted spare tire support pics...

Most 35's will fit on the stock carrier. Not the best route if it's not supported, but an option.

well you can fit all that stuff on anything with customization.

here is mine... 500$ for 1/4" steel that will hold up to pretty much any size tire.

Best bumper/tire carrier for the price is the Rancho. Its 1/4", takes a beating and keeps on ticking and holds the tire great!

Here's mine.





In action


I recently took the carrier off though an located the spare to the interior because I never used my back seat anyway and wanted to get the weight off the rear end.

I plan on going with the ACE rear bumper/tire carrier option. Price is pretty good as well as a good looking setup.
