Bronco2 roof rack?

My tire carrier on my 84B2 rattles so much its driving me crazy. I wanted to know if anyone knew of an aftermarket roof rack that could hold my spare and give a place to mount some lites. Mine doesnt have any factory rack of any kind so I am starting from scratch.

BTW...drilling ,welding or duct taping isnt a problem either cuz its a beater.

i have an aluminum 50"x50"x4" basket rack that would need to be bolted on. it is too wide but can easially be cut down to size.

FWIW i wouldn't strap a tire to the roof of a B2 esc if your gonna be wheeling it.......That much wieght added to the roof will really throw off your COG and it will be a noticable difference. I used to strap my tire to the roof of my explorer sport.......never again.
