Bestop Universal Rack Tray fitting?

I want to have a Bestop universal rack tray above my spare wheel ... I have a mantec swing away carrier ... i'm looking at this but don't think it would clear the rear wiper or even rear glass ...

http://www.bestop.com/images/install...ides/41411.pdf

Anyone know any other mounting solutions?

Anyone interested in creating an adaptor for the mantec to carry a tray?

Easy enough to fabricate a tray that bolts onto the mantec with the wheel sandwiched between. why not a hitch mounted tray? cheap and easy to find.

Easy enough to fabricate? Maybe for someone but my day job involves pushing a mouse around a desk ...

I already have the tray which I use on my roof rack ... I really would like an above the wheel option ... Mainly for vanity reasons!

I have a Jeff Payne Yakima adaptor plate ... Maybe I should ask for a set of bars welded to the back of that?
