That's pretty pricey, a tire carrier bumper can be had for $500 or less.

Besides,

The Body Armor design is a ripoff of the Bulletproof Bumpers design. They are being sued because of it. Contact Bulletproof if you have questions. I would never support a ripoff company.

Where can I find a quality bumper with a swing out carrier for less that $500?

I bought a very high quality unit on ebay. Look at Jeep tire carriers and locate one with the seller ( GRANT4X4 ). This unit is extremely solid with swing away. It includes Gerry can mounts and High Lift mount. Half the price of a WARN unit. I think it was $ 450 dollars. You can also get a cargo rack that mounts on it to carry a small cooler if you want. Awsome product and fast delivery.
I also bought a front rock bumper with a winch mount from him.
Let me know if you can't find it and I will get you a number.
