where do u guys get those "cooler racks"..?!

I know..i know..been beat to death..but for some reason ALL i can find is the Warrior brand cooler rack that mounts to the stock spare tire carrier..? And i do NOT care for the big W on it or the price but anyways..sure been looking for a while and seems every Jeep CJ7 i see here in northern ca has one..sooo any help or ideas? I just want one for a small cooler above my spare..i been holding off waiting/hoping to do hd bumper/swingout..but for now..i NEED one for extra space thanx guys! And if anybody in northern ca has one willing to part with it or upgraded..hit me!

How bout this, a square tube welded to the center of the tire carrier.
Have someone make a little basket/ carrier, or build one yourself.
Insert the "basket" into the tube, secure with a small hitch pin.
It also holds the spare up to align the studs.

Yes I know the rim is gaudy, but its just a spare.

Yes, I know you mentioned not liking Warrior, but the big W can be removed very easily, and the upturned receiver mount works perfectly. There are a bunch of other brands, but to me they are all sub par in quality...My two cents and change...grin...

I got a basket built that swings out with a tire mount on the back of it. Idk where it came from cause the guy I got it from put it on there but I like it. Gives me more space to put stuff

I got one of these I'd let go for 100.00. I don't use it anymore.
