Valley Spare Tire Carrier
There have been many questions about tire carriers and here is one solution. JC Whitney used to sell a tire carrier by Valley that fits Full Size Jeeps. Here are some photos of how it looks and mounts. You can occasionally find these in the junkyard. Failing that, if you are handy with metal, tube benders, and welders, you could make your own.
