AEV carrier is the slickest solution for a tire carrier with the stock bumper. Teraflex is nice too.

Only thing I did was loosen up the bumper and raise it up just enough to allow the tire to rest on it. This took away most of the stress on the factory tire carrier. As tire sizes vary so much, your results may vary. The last pair of 35's I had were KM2's and they fit perfectly.

Mine rested great on my bumper and I didn't have any problems for a long time...until I backed into a tree and bent the gate up a little. Now I have some spot welds that look like they may give up somewhere down the road so I only throw the spare on there when I am going wheelin, which is about never anymore. Someday I will step up and get rear bumper with a carrier.

Ran it as is for over a year. 2 of the spot welds closest to the hinges finally gave out a month or two ago. I was going to keep the spare in the trunk but I couldn't pass on a Teraflex HD hinge carrier on sale so I went that route.

The stock tire carrier is a bad idea

This could do the trick for you depending on how you use your JK.

Teraflex HD tire carrier is the way I went. The tailgate opens and closes better now than it did with just the stock spare tire on it.

I have the OR Fab Gerry can carrier. How it interacts with the rear bumper is moot.
