I don't think the stock bumper will support the extra weight of a carrier + tire.

I second the weight issue. But if you are up for building something like this maybe build it to look like stock but more rigid for the added weight. Would be a good time to think about recovery points also. Maybe a few D rings?

what size sawzall blades does it take to fit 40's?

The stock bumper is basically tin foil. It would crumple under the weight.

Try looking at an XJ (cherokee) stock tire carrier. It is tied into the unibody with L brackets, then tied again onto the bumper. when all said and done, you have a C around the bumper and the carrier is part of that C.

Here is the one i did on an old rig. it was a pre 97, put onto a 97.

If you used the stock bumper as a skin that fit tightly over an internal structure you could make it work. But personally, I think a custom bumper could be made to look nicer than the stock unit.

Genright's mimics the rear crossmember. What size tire are you running?

What do you mean by stock? Tin bent into a squarish profile with some milk jugs shoved in the end?

No, its a stock pre-97 cherokee carrier (few were put on over its lifespan). I jsut modified it to fit my 97.

but you can see how it is a plate with the carrier on it, then behind the bumper is another plate (bumper is sandwiched between) with all the mounts for the frame/unibody

The original owner built this for my TJ.....

Its on my short list to be replaced but it certainly is structurally strong and does what it was intended to do.... not the greatest fabrication skills but very functional.









My very slight contribution was to add the HL Jack mount and shovel hanger:







Whats under the passenger seat now....
