rails or bumper?

with tax return season here I am anticipating either finally getting some rock rails to save my rocker panels from further abuse or a rear bumper and tire carrier so that I can actually carry my spare with me. What do yall think I should get?

here is some abuse going on of my rockerpanels. and you can barely see my spare ratchet strapped down in the back.

I would do rock sliders first, protect that body. You can always find a way to carry a spare in the back of the rig
