Just put 35's on - Tire carrier options?

I just put 35's on my 2012 rubi unlimited and need options/opinions for a new tire carrier to accommodate the new larger spare.

At jeep dealer now for standard service and they have a rubi on the showroom floor with a dv8 bumper and carrier that looks pretty nice and very strong...$950 installed though.

Suggestions?

Lots of bumpers & tire carriers out there.
I went with Teraflex to retain the factory door opening. I didn't want a separate latch to open the tail. There are other carriers that do that as well.

About a year and a half in, 30,000+ miles and 0 issues. I check the bolt every 5k when I rotate and it hasn't been loose yet.
It's solid, no rattles. No complaints.

I just installed the Teraflex HD Hinge and Carrier last Saturday. I chose it because I don't want a bumper carrier combo. Got a great price from Ryan at Extreme Terrain.
My wheel / tire combo comes in at 93 lbs, no rattle, no shake. So far so good.

I just put on an Ace engineering pro series. It is linked to to the tailgate so only one latch to open. Pretty stout outfit. I installed it and it was $925 with free shipping from Northridge 4 x 4. Easy DIY install and got it in two days.

I too am happy with my TF HD. Over 25,000 miles with 35's + Beadlocks and zero problems.

I'm considering one, but my impression is that anything that uses the bumper mount (like on a JKUHR bumper) has to be a little sturdier. Perhaps I'm wrong. The problem with the bumper mount is that, at least with respect to the AEV, American Expedition Vehicles - Brute Kit, V8 HEMI, Aftermarket Jeep Conversions, Products, Wheels, Accessories and Highline Kits for Jeeps (TJ, JK, WK, XK), it does away with the right tow hook.
