As far as the brake light, you will probably have to fab something up, or have a Machine shop do the same.
Odhinn,
That looks like the OR-Fab carrier I have on my YJ. Love it! Two Jerry cans, the spare, high lift and a CB whip all mounted to one secure package!

Bluesman I put a Bestop on mine 3-4 weeks ago.
Easy install and works great.

Did not want to open and close the bumper mounted one to get in the back trunk all the time.

Good point, I already have armor, but I didn't think of that.

Odhinn Bestop

Tompkin (sells in sections, this is the complete version I think)

Just a couple, The mounting system on the Tompkin is what you are looking for with a flat face bumper
Hope it helps

Not sure about the lockdown on the Or-fab but thats when a nice chain/Cable and a lock come in handy. Or I might fab up a locking system with some steel and a welder.

stevin33 right now i have the stock bumpers. eventually i will swap to aftermarket bumpers, not sure when.
that's a sharp looking carrier.....
does that set-up lock the spare tire down?

heavy duty spare tire carrier

is there a heavy duty spare tire carrier that can be mounted without having to buy an aftermarket rear bumper? i'm looking to mount 33" tire and also salvage the 3rd brake light.
