Default How to reattach the spare tire

So a couple weeks ago I'm driving along I feel the passenger side of my truck in the back sink a little I pull over and discover my passenger side rear tire went flat, My spare tire is attached underneath the truck, For those who have this feature on there truck how do you reattach the spare tire? Right now I've got it sitting in the bed of truck.

Do the opposite to what you did to lower it.

he might have had road service do it..

so here goes: take the long handle rod , look at the rear of the tailgate see a hole stick it in there and crank, counter clockwise it will lower a cable with a flange mounted on it.
take your tir/wheel insert the flange and turn the crank clockwise will raise said wheel.



after re-reading this the first part sounded dirty..lol

The same way you got the it down. Just put it on the little grapple and reel it up.
