:whistling:Need some info on what I can do. I have an 89yj with the bolts and rubber stops on the tail gate, but no carrier:confused:. Question #1- Do they make a spare tire carrier that allows you to use a 33x12.50x15 tire size? Question #2- Will the tailgate support the weight of that wheel & tire?:hide:

Tailgate will crackcand break with 33's. They make a reinforcement kit, but a bumper carrier is the best option.

I have a 1990YJ with chrome tube bumpers like yours and didn't want to buy a bumper with a tire carrier that didn't match. I bought a carrier from Quadratec that's rated for 35' tires and 200 lbs. I haven't put it on yet, but it will work with your current bumpers and will save your tailgate from breaking.
