Default Rear Door Spare Tire Carrier - dimensions for custom fab?

Hi,
I am looking to put a single rear door spare tire carrier on my 1990 RT (Dodge B250) to increase storage inside. Trouble is I can't find anything available locally (Edmonton) or in Canada, thereby resorting to purchase in US which could be a pain (and $$). Speaking to a local welder he can easily fab something up but would need some dimensions, does anyone have a good rear door spare carrier on their old single rear door Dodge van they could send me a picture of ideally with some rough dimensions?

The best example of what I am looking for is here:
Spare Tire Carrier - Tire Rack - Single Rear Door Dodge Van Ambulance Door Style | eBay
I'm looking for anything simple which will work, seen them around on lots of old vans but our van is too old even for the local wreckers! Any other suggestions welcome.

Thanks in advance!
Mark

I picked up a jeep spare mount, put a large aluminum plate backing and mounted it directly to the door. No problems and takes up less space and weight.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll look into the Jeep rack directly into the door, that's an interesting idea although I am a little hesitant with the larger door.

My van looks about the same vintage as yours Brian, just with the single rear door, but that's exactly what I was thinking as well. Thanks for the photos! Will definitely assist in fabrication.
Cheers!

.

Any off-road outfitter can get you a bumper-mounted spare tire rack.
