I don't think there are any aftermkt brackets that attach in the same location, but if there were, they would likely not hold up any better than the stock one. You could always relocate it to the middle of the tailgate (I keep my spare inside the vehicle- since I have no kids to ride back there). I beleive that there are some options available to mount the licence plate to the middle of the spare as well. You could come up with an easy solution also, with a trip to your local auto parts store. If you want to see some pics of what i did, than I'm more than happy to help.
