    Referring to the stock jack kit? Not so much the jack itself, but the connecting rods/bars/whatever. Reason I ask is b/c my tire pressure light went on today and as I attempted to lower the spare (the tire that was low on air), I quickly found out that nothing in my stock tool kit would reach to lower the damn tire! And I dont have the option of piecing them together to make them longer to reach :frusty:

    Looks about right to me (if not a little short).To lower my spare I use a long rod with a T on one end and a crank on the other. I go in above the license plate.

    You probably already knew this.

    Yep.... So something must be misplaced then. The only piece that I have in my setup thats in the link above is the silver lug wrench :mad:

    Not helpful :smack:

    Thanks for the vid! After watching it, that is DEFINITELY not the lowering rod that is in my truck..not even close :(


    I actually still managed to snake the air hose over the tire and contorted my hand around to grab it and fill it up...turning that idiot light off on the dash. And yea, I'll definitely be flipping the tire around, once I get it down :rolleyes:
