Tailgate rack options with AEV rear carrier

I'm fishing for more storage for my expeditioning. I'm looking to throw on a rear rack for holding a cooler or storage container during adventures and maybe mount a solar battery maintainer for keeping the juice charged up when it sits. I've recently switched back to the AEV rear bumper/carrier. I'm looking for something over the spare. Anyone know what brand(s) of rear racks work with the AEV setup? Searching turned up squat.

Allegedly Garvin has one that works it just isn't advertised on their site. I used a bestop one but had to do some significant cutting on the passenger side bracket to make it work. I recently took it off because the actual basket rattled too much for my wife. On the plus side basket is easily removable so not hard to take it off if not using it and it will fit in cargo space. I unfortunately don't have installed pictures but I can take pictures of bracket if you want.

I did see one (don't recall where) that used the light post for support and had bracket / pole running from tire carrier to basket. Light post provided majority of support.

I'd be interested in that. I'd considered making something that just bolted to the light mount.

Here's a pelican case attached to a TF tire carrier via aluminum tubing. Decided to loose the spare and bring a patch kit and ac.
I was going to use a Weathergaurd box but to pricey.
Mines for chainsaw, gas can, garbage after the weekend.
There's not much available.

OK, that's pretty awesome.

I might just steal that idea and mount a Pelican case to the top of my AEV light mast.

Thanks for sharing.
