on to the next project!!! my CJ5 does not have a opening rear tail gate.
the PO used the original rack to hold a 33" tire on and, well you guessed it,
the rear has cracked and needs some TLC. the original tire supports were
welded very poorly and have vibrated loose. seems that i could "chip" them
off and start from scratch..
you guys always have amazing and wonderful ideas, lets talk

I have the same year without a tailgate. Although I only have 31" tires, I modified an Olympic Heavy Duty spare tire carrier. I drilled new holes, added a 1" square tube spacer, bent it to fit existing body holes using a rosebud torch) and reinforced the inside with some flat bar to distribute the pressure. It was about $100.

(I presume you can also buy from one of the advertisers offering a discount to this site's visitor's--see the banner ads)

If I had the cash, I'd go with a bumper mount.
