Spare Tire/ Jack

Well golly ms molly look at at what I found, so I stand corrected.

Opps that is for a 48-56 F100....not quite what we are looking for.

I never really dug in to the LMC, DC, NPD, JBG, ....... web sites looking for one cause like brian1080 I cant very well hang a 35x12.50x16.5 on it. Well I could modify it to fit, but it would be a PITA to drop unless I mod a new style cable drop to the one end.

Someday.............. Till then I'l throw it in the back like most of us good ol Ford truck boys do.



I quote myself, now that's funny.

NA NA NA NA NA NA
Still don't understand. Big tires go on big huge trucks i.e. an Army 5 ton. Normal
tires go on pick-ups. They fit on spare tire carriers too. An Army 5 ton is designed to
go off road when necessary. A pick up is designed to go on paved roads…some of which
may be covered with snow.

Big snow, big tires, big waves, big ship.....got it?

As some go off the paved road, on purpose and (gasp) get mud on the tires and make the front axle help pull the rear. 4x4 is a what its called. We do it to get the chebbies out. lol

And bump into trees and its all mayhem after that. A 2wd is just that, truck for that paved road and might keep you limited to getting out in real world where the parking curbs stop.

Yeah, 2x4's should never leave the paved roads.

So people could see the exploded view of the optional slide-out spare tire carrier and its related parts.

Click the image to open in full size.

As seen here, 2 days ago, lol. The truck in the very back is a chevy.

I like to look at restored trucks, and 2wd trucks, but im just not the type of guy that wants one. I like that i can go anywhere and not care if I have to push through the overgrowth.
I grew up in Montana, and hunted, fished, and generally spent fun time offroad.
