Rodeo Tire Carrier?

Hey im looking to upgrade my tire carrier and was wondering if anyone has made one using a carrier from a rodeo? I can get the whole thing for 20 bucks at a junkyard. and would this even be strong enough to hold a 33" tire?

Have no idea what it looks like? would help..and what material is it made of..steel?..aluminum..etc?

Most factory tire carriers are not very stout at all,they only make them strong enough to hold the factory size tire for the vehicle and not built for offroad abuse with a heavy oversized tire bouncing on it.

I've looked at those Rodeo/Passport carriers in the junk yard quite a few times thinking the same thing.

I don't see how it would work. These tubs are not nearly strong enough with a lot of reinforcement to make it work and not worth the trouble IMO.

The rear bumper - trailer axle carrier is the best setup.
