They do make a ready made bumper mount bracket, but it would require bumper modification braced to an extra frame crossmember.
My Fiber Stream uses 4-bolt wheels, and it is raised for extra ground clearance, so a below frame spare mount works for me using one of the simple brackets Floyd mentioned. It is quite long in that the bracket was designed to go around a 4" hollow bumper in addition to through the tire's lug holes.

It's just a U-bolt with 2 lug nuts. After these pictures were taken I had it welded to the center frame member, though it functions without being welded.
