Spare Tire Carrier w/ Jerry Can Mounts

Been looking for a new spare tire carrier that will take the weight off of my tailgate, while also giving me place to store my jerry cans. Don't really want to drill into the tub to mount the cans so something already on the carrier would be great. Any suggestions under $400?

Might be able to make an idea out of the Smittybuilt bumper and tire carrier... I'm getting that soon, don't know how I'm going to mount the jerry cans though...

I know that Smittybilt is downgraded but I'm a college kid and I will work with what I got..

My grandfather and I will probably find an idea of the tire carrier with jerry cans

thedirtworx might be close to that cost and he can custom it to fit some jerry cans.

I don't think you're going to find anything that also carries jerry cans for under $400. My Off Road Fabricators rack does that plus it doesn't even touch the bumper so it meets your needs but it's considerably more than $400. I haven't priced one in years but check it out at OR-FAB Off-Road Products - Trail Tested Body Protection. I will vouch for it. After having been installed fror 7-8 years now, it is still tight and rattle free despite it has been carrying a 35" spare tire & two usually full jerry cans all that time.
When you have a choice, buy American.

Been running the ORFab carrier on my YJ for years and still love it. Do believe I spend quite a bit more than $400 but is was 3 years ago. Rock solid. Even was rear ended by a Corolla a year and a half ago and she lost with no damage to the YJ! Totalled her hood and she managed to scratch the paint on my Tomkin bumper.
