If you are price-sensitive, Olympic makes an oversized tire carrier that mounts with the stock bolt holes on your tailgate and will hold a 35" tire with the stock bumper and a 1.25" body lift - YMMV with another bumper or without the BL. It is $79.
This bracket also allows you to remount the 3rd brake light where it can be used with a 35" tire, and accepts either a 5x4.5" Wrangler wheel or a 5x5.5" CJ wheel.
Admittedly, my tailgate rattled with the extra wieght. I solved this by inserting an inverted hitch insert in my receiver bumper, which supports the tire's weight and stops the rattle.

Check out thedirtworx on ebay, he makes some good swing away tire carriers that'll hold a 35. I believe his cheapest one is like $360 shipped to your front door I believe. It comes unpainted though. But he hand makes them so if you want to customize it a little bit he can change it up for you at really no extra cost. I just ordered one with a custom hi-lift jack mount and welded through d-ring mounts for $400 pretty excited about it. Only thing is that because it is hand made and he really likes to do a good job it may take up to a month to build and ship depending upon how backed up he is. Here's a pick of another person's jeep with it on. And here's a link to his store on ebay. He doesn't have the attached one on there right now because he just sold one but I'm sure you can message him on ebay and he'll put one up.

|Roam'n TJ||I have the Bestop tire carrier with a 33". Don't have to swing away the carrier to open the rear gate, opens with the gate. Added a bracket for my Hilift jack as well.|

|convict27||Bestop Oversized tire carrier. It can handle up to a 35" spare and does not put undue stress on your hinges. This way you dont have to completely replace the entire bumper to make it work.|
