I was looking closely at the optional vertical mount on one of the Hummers in Phoenix last week. It appears to me it would be possible to use the vertical mount, with some modifications to lay it horizontal. Looking at these photos, you can see there is a hinge to swing the hub bolt away from the vertical mount to remove the tire. I am imagining laying that flat and bolting it from the other side of the tire. It also appears the vertical bar on the left side of the mount can be removed separately, see the attachment bolts at the bottom, and the split between the two sides. So remove the left side, and lay the hinged part flat.

Sounds like you may just need some d-rings and the Y-strap then. I'm still thinking Rig'd or another hitch mounted tire holder might be the ticket, but for the camera and backup sensor issues.
Actually I was thinking of that later after my post. I am not sure why the Raptor one has the metal bar. I think four d-rings an two straps could tie it down in an X pattern. In fact run one strap through the center of the wheel (over on one side, under on the other side) that should keep it form moving around.

oh interesting, I hadn't seen that on the accessories page before, it must be new.

Some quick sleuthing, I'm guessing the bedslide part number is 19432878. Of course it's not listed on the GMC site anywhere yet, but the third image has that part number in the URL.
I looked on the Bedslide site and it did not show the existing slide part as compatible with the Hummer. It did show the Silverado though, but that would have a longer bed.
