Tire carrier options.
 
So I'm at a cross roads here. I already have a bumper that I really like but does not come with a tire carrier. I also have a drop down tailgate from Rokmen. I'd like to know what my options are as far as getting bigger spares on. I know that there are tub mounted carries but all, exxogate, OR fab, best top, uses the swing out tailgate as a part of the carrier system. I don't have any personal experience with any of these so I might be missing something, if so please let me know. So are there any options out there to putting larger spares on, aside from getting a new bumper w/ a tire carrier?
My only viable option as of right now is to buy a latch and hinge assembly from poisonspyder and have a local shop fab up some for me, but that will run me more than double my bumper costs. I'd really rather keep my bumper. It Any help appreciated.

The ORFab tire carrier is separate from the tailgate. I don't own it on my rig but I have a friend who runs it and he loves it. Since you have a drop down tail gate this might be the best option.

I know this video is crappy but you see them opening the carrier.

Hope this helps you!
