replace spare & add bike rack to back 2019WOLF PUP

Hi there, we just bought a new Cherokee Wolf Pup, 22 ft rv and it has the drop down platform w/ the spare mounted to it. When lowered to put bikes/storage on it, the spare bottoms out on inclines/ drive ramps etc... I'd like to remove it and mount the spare to bumper and add a bike rack, but that bumper and the under frame is pretty light weight....has any one done a mod like that?? I may have to weld some extra supports back there... THANKS!!Click image for larger version

There are brackets that can be bolted (drilling required) to the frame and loop up under the "bumper" sewer hose storage tube to reinforce it. Then add in the cost of the bike rack and spare tire mount. That's why I still use my rear rack as the spare tire carrier ;( I would like to be able to use the rear rack without worrying about dragging the spare. The spare carrier is welded to the rack bottom.

My Mini Lite is also very low to the ground. The bottom of my sewer drain is only 9" from the ground.
