While in the mud, I managed to bust my spare carrier. It was a homemade carrier made the PO, many years ago:
The lower 2 bolts snapped right off. I realize how unsafe it looks, but it lasted like this for the last 30,000 miles, much of which was offroad.
I could grind off the bolts, and replace them, but I see on ebay, and locally, cheap "universal spare carriers" like this:
Seems like I could bolt that universal carrier adapter directly to the post on my bumper, and it would be much stronger then the original setup?
