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.

That is actually one of the 1st on my list. I just wanted to see if people had other suggestions. Thanks for the input guys!
