reciever hitch cargo carrier

I need a good cargo basket for the reciever hitch, but I have a 35x13.50 spare tire on a tire carrier. It sticks out past the reciever hitch entry point into the bumper roughly 13-15 inches. Are there any reciever hitch baskets that can be bough that would put the basket out past that. All I will be putting on it is about 80 pounds 100 tops. I know I can get a reciver hitch extension but I for some reason dont trust that approach. this may be reaching but are there any baskets that come out that far and rise up roughly 8 inches so I wont drag the basket going off the smallest hill. I only need it for one vacation trip. It will be all interstate miles.

HF has an aluminum one on sale right now for $69. I picked one up a couple months ago so I wouldn't need to use my trailer all the time. I think you have plenty of clearance.

I purchased a extension for my 33's you got to measure wear the pin holes are on extension to cargo so you don't go to long or short when purchasing extension length.

I hate to ask but what does HF stand for.

Yes, Harbor Freight, not bad typing (this time). Just used mine yesterday to take in my recycle stuff into town. Now it's hanging back on the hook in the garage.

I bought this one at Northern Tool for around $70.00. It has plenty of clearance for the spare and I've not had a problem with it dragging while doing light off roading. I'm sure it would on steep inclines. If you just need it for the highway, it should work fine.

I put an extension between the hitch & my box. It clears my spare just right for the lid to open fully.
