How to Remove a Spare Tire From Under a Truck Bed

59

Remove your pickup’s under-bed mounted spare tire easily. In the early 20th century, pickup trucks were merely modified automobiles. However, pickup trucks came into their own when these highly versatile vehicles gained in popularity. Modern pickup trucks share virtually no parts with automobiles, whose spare tires are usually stowed in the trunk. To avoid wasting valuable cargo space by stowing the spare tire in the pickup truck bed, manufacturers mount the spare underneath the bed at the rear of the pickup truck. This solved the problem of what to do with the spare, but removing the tire from its spot under the bed can be a chore unless you know how to do it correctly.
