RRC rear bumpers

I know I had asked about this before, but I couldn't find the thread.
Looking for pix and recommendations for a rear bumper with spare tire carrier for my RRC. Had a blast at Rovers on the Rocks this weekend, but the series of "modifications' to the stock bumper and quarters isn't acceptable.
So, what's out there?

No one is making RRC rear bumpers. Columbia Overland has a really nice bumper but is has been discontinued. I'm a pansy and prefer not to cut my trucks up Rovertym bumper requires cutting, its a nice bumper but I've only seen one. Safari Gard makes a nice looking bumper as does Rockware but they are whale terds.

Frank w/ the STRANGE ROVER has that bumper I'm pretty sure.
Really nice looking but does not have spare tire capability.
I'd like to get a CO if I ever see one used... looks almost stockish but strong.

I think you'll get annoyed at having to move the tire carrier out of the way every time you want to get into the tailgate, and pretty fast. Plus you can't see a thing out the back.

^^ I agree ^^

That is one reason I like a roof rack.
Normally, I carry the spare(a 265/75) in the cargo floor laying flat, but if I need extra room or go on a trip or to Uwharrie/Rausch...I can throw it up there out of the way.

The Rockware is currently my #1 option, I'd like a rear bumper for protection. having spent time with a land cruiser with a swingout tire carrier its a huge PITA . I run stock size tires so they fit just fine in the factory location . I will say that even the stock tire consumes a lot of real estate in the back of my truck .
