Jeep Wrangler tailgate spare tire carrier on Jeep zj..can it be done?

I have a 98 zj and was lookin at rear latch tire holder but not willing to pay $400 for one. Could it be possible to take a OEM spare tire holder for a Wrangler and bolt it onto the rear latch of my Zj?

no.
1. the hatch sheetmetal isnt strong enough to support the weight of a tire
2. the lift supports arent strong enough to support the weight of a tire

this has been covered in depth before

Reliability is relative
