Spare tire problem

Hi everyone. First, let me thank all of the members who post on this forum. I will start by saying that I have a 2003 TJ. Thanks to your help, I have finally solved my blower-only-works-on-high problem by replacing the faulty resistor (again thanks for the detailed instructions). I also fixed my fog-lights-are-always-on by putting in a new switch (once again fantastic, detailed how to on these boards). Here is my latest problem; I am having a 3" BDS lift put on so I can run my new 33's. I took off the spare tire and removed the 3rd light only to realize that the bottom of my tire hits the bumper. I'm guessing that I will need a new spare carrier. Any suggestions?

Uh oh.. what kind of 33's and what backspacing on the wheels?

I've got 33x1250 Duratracs going on next week and was concerned about the spare..

I've got the exact same tires mounted on MB 72s. I've read where others have said they mounted on the stock carrier, but mine definitely hits the bumper.
