I was going to go with the same unit until I saw the Garvin Wilderness series EXT tire carrier.

The Wilderness is almost 4 times the price ($1K) but you get so much more.

Don't get me wrong, the unit you're looking at is well built, just not as many options as the Wilderness.

That looks pretty light duty to me, what size tire will you be mounting on it?
When you have a choice, buy American.

That looks like a lot of welding work for 250 bucks......

Check out Tomken. Strong, no rattles, US made and a reasonable price.
