ORF tire carrier shifts the weight to the farme (so no issues with the bumper sag) with some heavy duty brackets that act as a good battering ram if you need it. Jerry can mounts incorporated into it, it can carry just about any size wheel.
I just built one based on a donor from a Nissan pathfinder. I was planning on taking a bunch of pictures and starting a thread on it but "the storm of the century" is going on here now and it will have to wait. The Nissan carrier has a really nice strong latch. Heres a couple initial shots, for now.
I run the Warn's ( Warn Industries - Mounting Systems: Rock Crawler Rear Bumper ) F/R tire carrier on the rear works well only complaint I have is with in 6 months of installing them the powder coating started to flake around the edges and bubble from rusting underneath. For what I paid for these I would never buy them again.
I wish I would have just purchased these instead. Back when I purchased the Warn's I could have had a set of these with tire carrier for less money.
AtoZ Fabrication. Great product, easy to install, and hasn't caused any issues so far. At first, I was a little concerned about the t-handle lock (vs. a quick latch type lock that I've seen on other carriers), but I don't get in there enough to really have it be a hassle or anything, and I know that it's not going to fly open on me.
It's held up well... I'm pretty sure it's been there 3 years. Took a hit a few years back from a road rager and took out a bit of his front end. I ended up with a scuff on the powdercoat.
Wilderness ATS works fine and rattle free, wish it had more attachment points from the factory for gear though.
