I have to argue about swing away tire carriers even mostly breaking- granted mine is only a trail rig now, but I had the tire swing with 35" BFG MT on it for 2 years of DD and never had an issue- even when I slipped back on a hill climb into a tree and bent the tire mouting flange quite a bit- the spindle was still perfect. Granted I built it myself using a 2 ton trailer spindle.

1981 (with some 80 and 84 parts thrown in) CJ7 under restoration. SBC 350, 2.5" lift, half hard top and lots of fun!
