Lowering the spare on a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado is a simple task that takes a matter of minutes. The spare tire on this American-made vehicle is under the bed. This model uses a ratcheting system that you engage with a tool from the back of the vehicle, meaning you shouldn’t have to crawl under the bed to lower the spare.
Things You’ll Need: Wheel wrench, Jack handle extensions
- Retrieve the tools stored with the jack from under the passenger seat in the cab of the truck.
