Spare tire assembly recomendations

New to WF, I have been wanting to take my spare tire off of my rear door and put the weight on the frame, plus I want some place to hold two 5 gal fuel cans. I have BFG 31".

Anyway thank you in advance.

this is the rear bumper and tire carrier im going to get. i have read alot of really good review about these bumper being really well built. and its alot cheaper than the other ones you see on jeep websites. only thing i dont really like is that its not already painted.

The OR*FAB set up is amazing. Holds a spare, 2 cans, Hi-Lift, and swings away. Solid mounting to the frame and tub. A bit pricy these days but well worth it.

Mine was free. Well okay, I had to buy the ratchet strap.

Off-Road Fabricators. Their mount holds two 5 gal. jerry cans, Hi-Lift, and its mounting bolts are bolted through the body to hidden brackets supported entirely by the rear rollbar mounts. Stronger than any bumper or tub-mounted tire carrier. Note the mounting bolts do pass through the tub so it looks like it is bolted to the tub but it's not, all the weight is supported via the rollbar bases.

I ran one for 8+ years (up until my TJ was stolen in March) and it was rattle free the entire time, plus it was still sag-free after all those years of carrying a full size 35x12.50 spare and two usually full jerry cans.
When you have a choice, buy American.
