    Default lost spare tire tool

    Helped a buddy change a spare during hunting season. Made the mistake of leaving all the jack components except the jack itself at the boat ramp.

    (please note the jack for the toyota lifted and supported a dodge ram 3500 so we could change the tire!!!!!!)

    I bought a replacement lug wrench but I need the tools to operate the jack and to get the wheel down...trying not to pay dealer prices if at all possible. For an 02' 4x4 Tundra

    Thanks for any help!

    A salvage yard might be the cheapest way out if you're not interested a mint condition item. Good luck.

    Makes me wish some genious out there would invent an after-market device that will lower/raise the spare without the dumbass "tools" that the manufacturers give us.

    But hey, I got eight cup holders!

    You better thank Toyota for providing those tools and especially inventing the system that we have today !

    I had a 1990 F150 before and in order to get the spare down you simply dropped it on yourself and wrestled it from under the truck. Now for the fun part, to put it back in, you had to crawl under the truck, lift the tire and holder up with one hand and screw the lock with other hand. I think the wheel/tire/holder combo weighs about 900 lbs or at least it felt that way !

    Imagine doing that in the rain wearing a suit.................

    Yeah, things could be worse. But things could be better too. Wouldn't it be nice to have a nice solid connection between the lift/lower mechanism and the rear bumper?
