i removed the license plate holder and the stock tire mount, chopped them both up and combined the two into one. can now mount it to the inside of the tire or just to the gate.

I have a black Jeep and put a dab of black RTV in. You can hardly see the hole and it's protected from the elements. I think my bolts were too long to completely thread in or I would have just used those.

Because where I took my carrier off the paint is damaged. Just was wondering if there was anything aftermarket to clean that area up.
