Is it possible to add a tire carrier to a aftermarket bumper?

686 3
Im wondering if I can add a tire carrier/swing to my smittybilt src classic rear bumper? At the time I bought it I only had 33s and thought i wasn't moving up until this summer. Well plans change and I upgraded a few weeks ago and want to get a full size spare. The 31 spare on a steel rim seems like its at max on the tire carrier so I don't think 33x12.5 would hold up so good.
Are there kits somewhere I could buy or is this just not possible/good idea?
Thanks

Well, I found myself in this exact situation this week, so I bought the metal pipes and created my own. The bumper I had was aftermarket, and I bought it about ten years ago. I just drilled a hole in it, and bolted my rig on. It works pretty good. Here are some pictures to give you ideas.
