YJ tail gate strength

i hate the way the stock tire carrier looks so i never run with one and just keep my spare in the back. the other day i was thinking of all the storage add-ons people do and realized i might be able to use the stock tire holder holes to make some kind of shelf or box. does anyone see any problems with this?

I need my back seat so i keep my tire on the tailgate. its a 32" and weighs a bit. should work and you could always give the shelf or box additional support if needed. wouldnt be any different than having the tire there. a little more accesible to some idiot who thinks he aught to have it
