Which tire carrier hinge is best?

My freakin awesome wife is getting my a tire carrier hinge for my birthday and I need to figure out if they are all generally the same or is there a better one out there, that you all advise?

This is what i got:
http://www.atozfabrication.com/store...lders-Kit.html

haven't had time to build it yet tho. I have the Custom 4x bumper which is made from 3"x6" tube. The spindle is 5" so i need to find a way to properly support it.

I figured it was best to get the kit since i would need all of the parts anyway. They sell just the hinge too.

If you still have the stock rear bumper i would check out this tread:

JCDriller did an awesome job on his tire carrier.

Yeah that has been my inspiration for my new mod-ed bumper. I am going to do the same thing but with some improvments. I have to have the gas tank swing open as well then have a latter behind it so I can get up to my future roof tent (that will also be home made). So I have my work cut out for me but I have been blueprinting for over a year now and now its time!
