ZR2 Spare Tire Carrier?

So I saw a craigslist posting of 5.9 limited lifted, the whole 9 yards, and a spare tire carrier as well. It was a really really simple one, and looked just like one that's on a ZR2. Does anyone have any input on this? Would it be a simple bolt/bracket bolt-on?




or could this be something custom?

I remember seeing that ad and IIRC it said it was custom. Ive been playin with the idea of retrofitting a stock xj tire carrier thats very similar to that one

EDIT: Heres a pic I found


A JY by my house has an 99 xj with one on it. Im going to take a closer look next time im there to see if itll work

That looks pretty nice actually, it looks custom and cheap to make.

There was a factory ZJ tire carrier that was available in 93-94 (maybe 95 as well) that would likely be a lot easier to beef up.

Youll def need to support the inner fender behind the mounting point. No way it would hold a tire otherwise.

you need something like my rear quarter panel armor i just made for my jeep that would hold that tire carrier very nicely .. it is plated on the inside as well for bracing

outer plate and inner plate are both 3/8" steel
