Putting the family back in family style roll bar

Most of you know that I removed the rear seat and put the spare tire in its place, i also made the tail gate to swing down. now at the request of my wife and kids they want the back seat back in the jeep. I did that today after workr
My tire cant go back on the tail gate because theres not enough clearance , the tire hits the bumper as it swings down , I tried spacers and it still hits.
Option 1 is find a swing out tire carrier that mounts to the body, Who makes one? My rear bumpers new so I dont want a new one
option 2 put the tail gate back to stock but I would rather do option 1
Did I read somewhere that a chevy blazer carrier works?
Does anyone have one they want to get rid of?
Thanks
Im also buying shoulder belts for the rear seats.
Im looking forward to wheeling with my family

Mine in a Canyon City. It holds two 5 gallon Jerry cans along with a 35" tire easily. It has some super beefy body mount brackets that are installed under the tub and inside the tub, basically sandwiching the tub.

At one point they did, but I'm not sure if he reopened another shop.

Once in awhile you'll see them pop-up on for sale forums (mine isn't for sale ).

Maybe a drop down type rear stinger/carrier???? This is exactly why I'll never have kids (once all four of mine move out )

Didn't jeep, years ago, mount the tire on the passengers side of the tub? What ever happened to that? How did your swing down gate work out? How'd you do the cables? Any pictures of the gate/cables? I'm thinking about doing a drop down gate also. I guess a swing away tire is needed once the gate drops down then, Eh?. Is there any way to mount the tire higher up on the gate, so it will still drop down? Food for thought. Thanks.

I dont have the cables installed yet, I was thinking of mounting the tire up higher but then it would be in the way if you were to sit on the gate
So my thing is now, do i spend the 200 plus in cash for a body mounted carrier or put the tailgate back to stock.
Ive been looking at the aussie lockers and that 200 can go into that

Back to stock,and you lose the gate being a seat, I'd find a way to fab a swing away setup for the tire and still retain the bumper. That would be a plus and it wouldn't set you back 2 bills and leave you some cash for a belt setup for the back seat. I saw somewhere,some mentioned putting in a set of bucket seats in the rear. That sounds pretty interesting. Probably safer too.

I know it's way away from you, but I figured it would give you an idea of something to look into.

Thanks for the suggestions but im back to stock now except for the tail lights.
Now I just have to convince my wife that the money I saved on the carrier can go into front and rear MORE boomerang shackles,,,,,,,and an Aussie locker

Just an FYI...

a) Canyon City is OOB and has been for over 5 years.
b) The Or-Fab carrier is a good alternative but the price is a bit steep.

Also, the stock tire carrier and tailgate will not last long with a 32" tire mounted to them.
