Who Makes This Tire Carrier?

I snapped a couple of quick cell phone pics of this and I am wondering who makes it? The Jeep was parked at the South Point Casino.

That's the tire/can version. It sticks out about 8"... There is one that hugs the back with no space for cans.

Thank you for the help. I found it on their website after the first response.

I have the Rancho rear bumper/carrier right now and I don't really care for it. It looks nice but it has some issues such as the hi-lift jack mounts and the tailgate will hit it if you don't open it far enough.

I'm looking into the carrier from Hanson of the OR-Fab above. Does anybody have any information on the OR-Fab one with room for gas cans in regards to departure angle? What I like about the one from Hanson is that it swings with the tailgate not separately. I might overlook this feature for the ability to carry a couple of gas cans. This would fit better with my intended expedition use of my Jeep. Also, does anybody know where the OR-Fab pivot points are in relation to the tailgate?

It will probably hinder it a bit with 35's+, but you can always turn the handle and remove the spare... I'd have no worries at that point.
That also depends on the bumper, lift and tires you are running. Just take a picture of the rear profile on your jeep, and make a line from where the rear tire stops touching the ground, make a few measurements, and you can see if you'd have an extra 9" of clearance. Small math problem...

I don't know anyone unhappy with it.


Here is what I am talking about... QUICKLY made with stolen photo...
You need to take it while standing in line with the bumper for an educated guess as to how much it'll change your angles.
