Whats the best (bandaid) rear tire ext/relocation bracket?

I cant afford the tire carrier I want for another month or so.. I need to get a bracket so I can mount my 35x12.5x17 spare tire. What are your recommendations for a temporary quick fix?

What tire and wheel combo. What is the backspace of the wheel ?
There are a few companies that make an adaptor plate.

Ok usually a wheel with 4.5" BS will just fit with the 35" on the factory carrier. A 1/4" spacer may do the trick for the time being.

I did a test fit to see how bad it was.. I was alittle surprised with how off it was. Im thinking more of a 1/2" to 3/4". Im not sure if im over-exaggerating or not.

how worried should I be about the stock tailgate in doing this? its a 2012 and will only be used for about 2 months. I also have the daystar bumps to help eliminate vibration.

was thinking about this one..

I ran a 35" ProComp Xtreme M/T on the factory tailgate carrier for 2 years, then 35" Duratracs for a year with 4.5" BS and factory bumper. On the other hand my 35" Pitbulls will not fit with 4.5"BS as they are one of very few 35s that actually measure 35".
If you put 1/4" of washers on the carrier studs, then put the tire on the carrier with the tail gate open a bit. Once bolted up close the tailgate and see what happens. The tire will snug up on the back plastic bumper and keep it tight. This also keeps the stress off the tailgate.

Just went out and did a test fit with washers. it satisfies the width / depth, but its actually the diameter. Hits the rear bumper by at least 3/4". I bought that Smittybuilt Tire Relocation Bracket for $50, it moves it out and up. I guess im just going to crank everything tight, get the bump stops snug on the tire, and pray.
