tire carrier like this one?

Anyone know of a tire carrier for the ZJ that is like this one for the WJ?
I will prob end up just making one myself but if there is one out there and price is right ...

If you can drive it, fly it, or bang it.... rent it.

No. That's things like 600 bucks too. For another 180 you can have an entire rear bumper with swing away carrier.

And you have to lift a big heavy wheel and tire that much higher to mount it.

You'd have to find some extra heavy duty hatch struts too.

I think the guy that makes the one i posted sells the heavy lift supports for $150 or something like that. Also i hope to not have to use the spare very often ..lol my luck ii will have to change it every other outting lol. If i could find a decent looking swing out bumper i might do it but they are all ugly as can be

The ZJ poses an interesting challenge in a rear bumper with tire carrier with the bumper shape in relation to the hatch opening and the tail lights. I'm still tossing around ideas, but the tire carrier almost needs to mount to the vertical face of the bumper to avoid it sticking out the back too far, or blocking the tail lights or hatch.

Hansen makes a great looking bumper/tire carrier. Proto fab used to.
Flatland sells the cad file for you to build your own.

That's got a lot of the same elements I've been planning.

Proto fab had a great design but they don't make it anymore.

I really likes this guy's bumper and plan to copy it with a swing out carrier.

For me the tubular stuff doesn't quite flow right with the style of the ZJ.

I used to feel that way but I like the functionality, strength, and weight savings.
It's easy to tie the sliders into the bumpers with tube.

No, you'd just have to do the measurements yourself. The first one is custom the second was mass produced but not made any more.
