    gotta use the tool thats in with the jack under the back seat. You slip the flat end through the hole in the bumper by the license plate and then crank it down.

    NB - It just pushes into a little slot! Don't be confused with the hook on the end. There is nothing for it to grab onto. I spent 20 minutes one day trying to get it to hook into a hole or something and it's just a slot that it fits into.

    In my defense the sun was at the completely wrong angle for me to see anything and only after going and getting my camera and taking a picture could I see what the fuck the problem was!

    in your defense..(or mine) that manual isnt perfectly clear. IMHO, a hook makes a stupid flatblade screwdriver. maybe my truck is missing a cylinder that surrounds the flat slot portion on the truck, but my hook keeps slipping out. every chevy on the planet, a blind person can drop that spare. i turned retarded working mine off. (had to air it up, to turn of TPMS)..glad i had the opportunity to practice.

    ^ Yeah no it sure isn't. Worse they should have taken a note from Dodges book and put a second hole so you can see what you're doing. Makes a world of difference! Lowered a tire on a Ram is super easy by comparison.
