Never seen that bumper before. Possibly home made? If so they did a good job.

How do you mount a tire to that?

Even though the image could be confusing, take note of just the spare tire mounting bracket: if you need it highlighted I'll edit upon request. In other word two top mounting holes and two lower mounting holes retain the spare tire carrier onto the square tailgate frame.

OMGs, just noted in the above image, They (whom ever installed this system) simply cut away the factory plastic covered on the tailgate hinges.. #Fail

LOL, that pictured carrier looks no better than factory POS....LOL. Did nothing to upgrade the tailgate hinge. In fact, it's even worse as it's adding that much extra weight on top of a larger tire.....prepare for tailgate to crumble! Just WOW.

As far as the OP....looks custom to me....at least the carrier portion.
