Rear Bumper/Tire Carrier

Hello, im not the most creative person out there and ive been looking around on google images and yahoo images for a rear bumper/tire carrier for my 02 wrangler and havnt seen anything i liked yet but I am looking for a rear tire carrier/bumper that can hold a hi-lift,shovel and axe, and has recovery points on it. If someone could possibly post pictures of theirs, or draw me up something that would be GREATLY appreciated!

Double click on these images to enlarge them. The build plans do not include any connection for a hi-lift, but that should be an easy modification. There are a few other modifications that I would make if I were building this bumper & tire swing today. E-mail me and I'll share this information with you.

I've been researching a rear tire carrier that will carry a hi-lift, shovel, axe and 2 j-cans and the best I've found is on quadratec's site. The Body Armor 59" Rear Bumper with Swing Away Tire Carrier for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler (part #12029.402 on their site) seems the best for a few reasons. It's also available in a 54" length, it doesn't require any mods to the fuel tank, is a simple bolt on, already has a CB antenna and hi-lift mount, can easily be retro'd to accomodate shovel and axe mount(s), has 2 d-shackles, a 2" receiver and comes highly recommended by a friend of mine that also has a 2003 TJ Sport (the same as me) and works for a 4x4 parts store and gets all his stuff free. He has one and loves it. It's tight, secure, strong and pretty reasonably priced. In my mind, that's what I'm going with. Check it out and see what you think.
