Rear bumper / tire carrier

I am looking to get a new rear bumper / tire carrier to support a 33" spare. Can anyone give me an idea as to which one?

I second this.
I just put that one on the other day. I'll be doing a review on here as soon as I finish up the typing and, well, to be honest, it's raining, so I'm going to play in the mud first, lol!

It is a super stout bumper, though!
After I got it all painted up & mounted, I swung out the carrier 90 degrees, climbed up onto it with the spare, and bounced up & down. Nothing moved but the suspension!


RATUNA:
Did you put the gas mounts on? My gas can holders are twenty years old, and have 4 holes, where the bumper has 3 holes on the can mounts.
I was wondering if the new can brackets have only 3 bolts now instead of four?

I did not get the gas can mounts on mine, kinda regret not getting them but on the other hand I don't think I really would get enough use out of them anyways.

The blitz can carries are 4 hole as well. Maybe just drill through your holder to mount into those holes!

Heh, yep. That's what I did after I asked that question. I thought I'd rather drill into a $20 bracket than a $450 bumper.

Don't get me wrong I loved the price and I really like the look of it and hasn't given me any problems, but whoo the install for me was a nightmare and i'm sure most of it was me in the parking lot of my apartment complex by myself in the sun and had to drop the tank with a bottle jack I had no help and broke a 1/2 tap in my frame and couldn't remove it so for me not such a great experience, but hey great bumper for the money

LOL! I hear ya! In all honesty, dropping the tank was a major bummer. I didn't have any help at the time I was installing it, so I drove around without having bolted on the two needed by the tank for like two weeks (I had drilled the holes though). Then a buddy of mine helped me out using those big @ss jacks...
