Default Rear TJ/YJ rear bumper needed, to fit 33" tire

I put replacement tires on my TJ. I thought I could squeek the new tire on the OEM carrier, for a few months. NOPE. I don't see any way to do it. I spaced the carrier off the gate about an inch. Still hits the bumper. I might sledgehammer it in to make it work for a while, but that's pretty ghetto.
I started a rear bumper, but I don't think I will have time to finish it. I am spending a lot of time fixing my house, and my moving vehicle. I am leaving for Utah June 2. Not coming back until August.
So, looking for what's out there. Can be rusty, fit any year wrangler, maybe even a CJ, I might be able to modify it faster than fix mine. Just needs to stay together.
I am in Lansing.

Just take the bumper off until you build one.

Not legal in Utah. Even have to have mudflaps down to the center of the wheel. :)

I stuck spacers under the bottom of the mount, against the tailgate, none on the top, angled the mount up. Put a large nut and washer under the bottom lug on the wheel mount, and spacers under the third brake light. Tightened lugnuts until it all fit. Works for now. A bit Red Green, but what the hey. I have a spare now.
