Best/cheapest tire carrier

Ok so the situation Im in right now is this..
My next investment among many other jeep parts will be a tire carrier. I have an Olympic 4x4 Rock something or other rear bumper. The natural thing to do would be to buy the carrier from olympic that mounts to the bumper. Well I think its FUGLY.
That being said what other companies make a cheap well built carrier that I might be able to make work on my bumper. Im sure I'll have to drill some new mounting holes and do some measuring but whatever.


btw heres what the carrier looks like...idk I just dont like it. Looks like the tire is gonna sit too far off the back of the jeep. And I dont like how they incorporate the OEM carrier.

Sell your current rear bumper, and look into one from Tomken. Strong, no rattles, and American made.

Thats exactly what I'm trying not to do...buy a whole new bumper/carrier setup.
And on a side note, I dont think I'll ever buy anything from shittybuilt.
