Anyone who has a truck for hauling (or daily driving), please go to the back of your truck and try to take the spare tire down. Before you have a flat and realize you need the jaws of life to remove said spare tire. Or bolt cutters. That's what we used.
|Three jacks to support the spare tire so it didn't fall on Husband's head while he was trying to prod/pound the secondary latch.|
|Note the cut and bent support arms.|
|Removing the bolt to get the hoist off.|
|Voila! No more spare tire hoist.|
|Rusted piece of garbage now.|
