Looking for an extended Tire Carrier. I believe ORF makes a good one. But I haven't had much luck finding any other ones.

I really like the the carriers that protrude away from the tailgate that lets' you store "stuff" between the tire and the tailgate.

Thanks,
Scott

I was looking at a Four Wheel Drive & Offroad earlier, and there is a rack out there that has room behnd it for two gas cans, so I'm sure there is room for other stuff too! I'll get a name for you mang!

I just installed the bulletproof bumper and tire carrier this weekend. Looks great, it's going to be a while before I get any pics posted though (still using non-digital camera- don't have a scanner). The bulletproof ones are expensive, but I like their motto - "you break it, or bend it - we buy it". You haven't filled out your profile, but if you have a 98 or newer TJ, some drilling is involved and some of the bolts are a pain in the a$$ to get to. I didn't have any troubles because I was installing a gas tank skid plate at the same time, so I just dropped the gas tank and had easy access to the bolts.

Also if you get bulletproof make sure to get the crossmember reinforcement kit that ties everything into the frame.

i have the 4wdh bumper-carrier. its great...solid as a rock and c*ck-strong. i have just 2 'wish it was a little better' thoughts. better instructions and better prep before powdercoating. within 4 months of putting it on, i noticed a rust bubble under the finish. now granted, this thing is rusting a little faster in east pa than the whole 7 months in north ga. i have a few more rust bubbles and sooner or later, im gonna hafta take it off and get it stripped and re-done. most likely later, been a wee bit lazy lately.

for the $500 it cost me, its worth it. and holds up to a 33 sized tire
