new tire carrier

I did a little fab work to make this work out for me. what i did was i took the tire carrier off of an 88 wrangler. being that the bolt pattern was the same 5 on 4.5 and welded two peices of unistrut on to make it tilt up. then just bolted it to the bed. tell me what you guys think!
