spare tire carrier

So I was wondering what you guys have done for your oversize spare tire mounts? I was considering one of the pre-runner type tailgate holders but they are close to $1000. I want to keep my bed as open as I can to be able to haul my dirt bikes around. My other thought was getting a rough rack and mounting it up there with some off road lights. Lets see some pics or hear some ideas. Thanks
