Spare Tire Carrier Opinions

Just looking for some feedback. I am replacing my NAS rear door+Mantec carrier with a newer style door. The NAS mantec plate that attaches to the door is different from the ones for the newer style door so I'm trying to figure out how I want to work this.

1) Use a new style stock door mounted carrier and remove the mantec altogether

2) Try to adapt the NAS mantec plate for the newer style door

3) Get a new style mantec carrier (seems like a waste of money! Really only need the plate I would think)

Thoughts?

You can buy just the plate so that our Mantec will work with the new door. I bought one from Keith gott.

What is the difference on the new style doors? Do you have any pics?

Look at any current Defender. The major difference is that the glass now has four rounded corners.
