Need a rear bumper

I'm looking for a rear bumper/tire carrier. Need some suggestions on what one to choose and why.

Thanks!

I want to take a new direction, more of a competition capable/travel type rig. I want the 4.0 with this rig and it is cheaper and more time effective to sell my current rig and start over.

I like <a href="http://www.tomken.com/" target="_blank">Tomken</a> products. Really heavy duty and the fit is perfect.

Speaking of tire carriers, what keeps me/us from just using the carrier on the door? Does the wheel/tire just get too heavy? I bought mine with the spare on the door and it is a full 32" tire on a 15X10 rim... should I look into getting a carrier? I'm going to be buying a rear bumper relatively soon so I'm covering my bases... bumper on their right now is those chrome rings on the left and right ;-)
