It looks great, and the bill of materials is very usefull! Has anyone done a tire carrier incorporated into a steel bumper? I would idealy want that, as my OEM bumper has taken some knocks during trails and I would like to get it replaced in any case.

You can buy one... Don't think I've seen a custom rear with tire carrier on here but there might be

The problem for me with buying is the shipping + exchange rate makes it extremely expensive, so if I want it, I need to build it!

Shinobi made a custom rear bumper with tire carrier, look for his build for ideas.
GraKee just had a custom one made for his as well.

Has anyone ever built one just behind the bumper to keep from having to cut it so much?
I would like to see someone hinge it on both sides with a latch in the middle?
