i can get a pic for you tomorrow of mine but it looks something like this just instead of being a cage it just bolts to where the tailgate used to be



but im personally a fan of side mounted spare tire holders so there isnt hassle of getting stuff in and out of your bed like a dirtbike or something

Just get an angled spare carrier.

Looks like so...




Or if you have money to spend look into something like this...
