I ordered one from an offroad company that makes them for tire carriers had it on there for about 6 months and it snapped clean through the spindle after I got done pulling out a 3/4 ton service truck. I'll have to get a pic of it. When I got the jeep it broke off opening it right after I made a 40 mile trip to the beach with it the guy I bought the jeep from made it and used a 1 1/8" bolt for it to hinge on
