Tire carrier advice.

Well I have done quite a bit of reading but I always value more peoples opinions. I am now in the market for a rear tire carrier. The reason is that my 32" bfg was mounted in the stock location but has started causing my rear gate latches get loose and wobble. I currently have Rugged Ridge tubular rear bumper and some random class II or III hitch. So if it is a complete bumper system it needs to have a hitch to tow my trailer. And it can't break my bank.



So I'm looking for suggestions on something that meets this criteria.

-can mount my spare tire
-has class 2-3 hitch to pull my trailer if it is a complete bumper system
-not outrageously priced

Nice but nearly $800 is pretty deep for my pockets.

Bestop has a tire carrier that does not involve your bumper if you wish to keep you current look. It swings out with the gate. Bestop.com
