You probably could if you can weld. I dont think they make a carrier that bolts on the back. Not sure if im reading post right. But there is a carrier that bolts in the bed. I think it is a Universal type mount.
No clue who makes it, try googling bed mounted tire carrier. Im thinking Fabtech for some reason.

the answer in short is "no". it is possible, but here's why. 1: the taillights are not as tall on the pathy than they are on the truck. IIRC its about 1-1/2". 2: there is extra support inside the fender including nuts for the mounts. 3: the lock mechanism for the swing would need to be on the tailgate which doesn't have the support for tire and carrier, it would get destroyed.

I would suggest building your own bumper and tire carrier mounting on the bumper like this...
