Default Any ideas on how to get off the spare tire

I am trying to get my spare tire off. I dont have the jack that came with the truck. Are there any other tools that I can use to remove the spare tire?

A socket (metric or SAE) would probably work, on a really longggg extension.

Your better of searching on ebay for replacement tools or go down to the Stealership.

if its like the one on my truck its just a 3/8" - 1/2" square tube. I'd either find a socet or square pipe to fit over it or take a socet extention and see if the 3/8h drive will fit in it, if not go to something smaller.

Go to your local junkyard. They often have these laying around for very little money.
