Default Re: Lockable Spare..need help unlocking

If I remember correctly when I had my 00 EXT cab Ranger I used the jack components to unlock the spare tire.

Interesting....doesn't seem to be enough space in the opening. I have to actually position the tire while raising to avoid the tire from resting on the exhaust hanger. Then again this does have aftermarket dual exhaust (flowmaster).

I had a 1999 Ranger 4x4 that had 235x75R16 on it from the factory and it too had a 16 inch spare.

Must be your exhaust mods preventing it.

when I first saw the spare tire on my truck, the LAST thing I thought was "I'd better get this baby locked, because she is worth a hell of a lot of money"

Yeah that is why I would only use the spare to get to the nearest tire repair shop.

Default Re: Lockable Spare..need help unlocking

i lost my key a while back for that.. this is the dumbest option i have seen. I had to have a locksmith come drill out the lock and remove it, pain in the ass. I doubt someone is going to break into my truck, take off the cover for the jack and say man i want his spare tire, extend the tire rod, lower it down, take it off the cable and run away with it hahaha no their going to take important stuff..

Sad thing is all fords rods are the same. So if the guy had one with a drill hooked on to the end it wouldnt take much to drop the spare and cut the cable and be gone with it.

Because not everyone has a Les Schwab or what ever the place is.. Where i live i dont have to worry about it truthfully it is just what i have thought of. I mean if a guy needed a rim for a ranger would you dig through a pile of tire and rims or would you drop a spare off of a ranger?

On my 2000 XLT the spare tire lock is stuck. Squirted it with penetrating oil, still won't budge. Will a long handle screwdriver and a 3lb. mall get it out (in pieces) without much todo? I really don't care about keeping it locked. I am having the underneath coated and need it out of there.
