Yeah, I'm that guy. I have the Warrior bracket and haven't had any issues at all. Eventually I will have a bumper with a tire carrier, but for now it works fine.ok I dont have an adapter but I do have a 35" tire on the gate for 23k miles with no issues. Several off road trips that are pretty bouncy and nothing, broke, bent or pulling away. Just wait, several will post up with the same results. I got a friend with a 37 (he is on here) on the gate
Here's something to ponder though. Make sure your tire is not resting on or too close to the rear bumper. Remember the tire is attached to the body and the bumper is attached to the frame. When flexing, if your tire is too close too your bumper, it will make contact. This will cause unwanted force to be applied to the tire.
