Here is an option for you. This is what we did to Jason's (Blushrk) spare and I also did this before I fabbed a bumper with a tire carrier.

Cut the heads of some 3/8" bolts and welded them to the sheet metal.



Some flat bar, angle iron, a bit of square tube and some 1/2" eye bolts. There are nuts welded to the back of the angle iron for the eye bolts.



Painted up.




Installed.




Tire mounted with a ratchet strap.





The pics show a 35" tire but his 37" toyos fit too. We left enough space between the eye bolts for the upgrade. We have wheeled alot with this setup and it hasnt budged. Mine held up perfect to my 38.5" bogger as well.

here are some pics. of the platform I made to cover my tire and also my box with some trail essentials (strap, chain etc.) I have an axe and shovel that fit beside the tire. this setup is temporary untill I build my drawer, then the platform will be attached to the floor and covered with speaker box carpet.

here is the link to the pics.

Looks good until you get stuck and can't get the tailgate down, Or the rear window motor gives out
