talgate tire carrier, opinions?

alright, so im sick of cleaning mud out from behind the rear bumper. it collects so much in there off the back tires (no, im not getting mudflaps)
so im going to be looking into a tube bumper.

figured it would also be a good time to consider how im going to carry my fullsize 33" spare when i upgrade tires. so i came across a few tailgate tire holders, need your thoughts on these!!

this one would be nice as it keeps the flat sides, and gives room for a high lift jack which could be very useful offroad. id assume i could also attach gas can holders to this one on the sides.




i like this one as well because of the pre runner style, which with tube bumpers and larger tires, would be a sweet look for my truck!

Not a fan of them on a relatively stock truck... but I'd pick the first one out of the two.

guess i should add it will be body lifted on 33's with tube bumpers out back AND up front.
future plans are eventually to Long travel it, if someone makes a kit since dixon stopped.
all i know is i need to carry a fullsize and i need tube bumpers!

My 33x10.5 spare is in the stock location. One side rides under the frame but you can barely tell when looking at it from the rear. Not a fan of those carriers that basically render the bed useless.
