Spare tire question

I got 33x12.50 and im looking into buying this Tomken Machine TMH-0102-S - Tomken Machine Oversize Spare Tire Adapter for 87-06 Jeep® Wrangler YJ, TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec over size spare tire carrier because my stock one has crack and i have welded it but think its best just to upgrade , but I have a 48" high lift and want to mount it using this 2740 - Smittybilt I-RACK (Intellegent Rack) - Quadratec . Question is if anyone has tried this , will it be able to support the weight?

That thing is still gonna put all the weight on the tail gate. I had pretty much the same setup and it started sagging mine. I would say either make one that attaches to bumper or wait till you can buy one.

That spare tire carrier you're looking at still mounts to your cracked spare tire carrier. As far as the Smittybilt thing, that's going to put way to much stress on your tailgate. It you're looking to do all of that get a bumper mounted carrier.

I have the smittybilt and all the weight is hanging way back, have now created a small crack in my tailgate door. Am buying a swing away. Don't know which one, thedirtworx looks good.
