Question Rear stubby/ tire carrier that opens with the tailgate

I am looking for a rear bumper/tire carrier that opens with the tailgate.
I had the HD customs sport on the jeep I just sold and I am considering that again but wanted to see what options are out there.
I have not found another

Looking for:
Stubby
Swing with gate
shackle tabs
hitch not for towing but to mount various things

Anyone?
The old post on this is for a full width so I started a new thread.

LoD has an integrated stubby I believe. Call Chris at LoD.

Ah ...I misspoke. HD Customs is the only one I can think of that has an integrated stubby.

an idea but really negates the benefit of an integrated as you still have to unlatch the swing out then open the gate. An integrated is nice open one all at once and now that I have had one I really don't want to go back to opening them both. I am sad that HD customs was not able to keep up with the demand. If Jarrett is still making bumpers that seems to be the best option on the market.

Interesting.... The pics on the site are kind of crappy. Does anyone have this bumper? looking to see how it mounts to gate. Also looking to see what it looks like from the side.

Interesting... Curious to see more pics from the side and back to see how far forward the sides go and how far out from the body it goes.
Anyone have more pics or info on this bumper? anyone know how heavy it is?

Shure like the look of a rear stubby. But just a day ago going over large rocks I banged the corner of my full width hard on a rock. Might have hit body if I had a stubby.

I have called and emailed and no replies. So I would assume that they aren't making anything anymore. Which sucks, since they had the best looking bumpers IMHO and was planning on installing their front and rear on my 2012.

Oh well...

Update, just got off the phone with HCP4x4 here in Denver. Aberle is having issues finding a foundry that will pour thier casts for the bumpers. Right now, they aren't closed, but you cannot get a bumper from them nor are they taking orders.

I thought they used to be their own foundry so that is interesting...
