If you can drive it, call a tire shop most of them have the tool ask if you can use it, then go there....Or find a member that lives close to you!

I think they forgot to include the poles with the Rangers, Ive asked many people if they had one and no one does. If I used a ratchet and extention what size would I have to use?
