Flipping The Spare Tire

I flipped the spare tire today so I could easily access the air valve. From the factory the spare is mounted upside down.

Flipping it doesn't affect ground clearances... I measure before and after, see photo's below. I took lots of photo's so the members here could see how all the parts fit together and how the lifting / lowering mechanism works. I have a 2 post lift in our barn... hopefully you folks will find this helpful.

IMO Ford did a good job designing the lifting chain and it's related mechanism. They even included a funnel shaped deal to help ensure the crank rod finds the hoist hole..

License Plate Brackets, Hitch Cover and USB Cable

License plate Brackets

Clear cover for front and just a black plastic surround for the rear.​

This is a soft rubber cover that has a lanyard to hold it to the hitch​

I got tired of my music thumb drive sticking out into the storage area... so this cable moved it out of the way. The other advantage: You're plugging devices into the cable, not the port in the truck. So when the cable wears out from plugging / unplugging devices into it, you just replace it the cable. Easy Peazy.​

Yep... it's an XL thing, like Anthony said. But they're in the way, be it one, or two ;-).

Thanks for the hitch cover link, I’d like to get something like that. Does your tailgate hit your rear license plate frame?

Of course it did. :like: You've obviously been down this path before :clap: Thanks for the heads up.

I sanded off the edges of the frame at the top to gain clearance.

I had to point out the license plate bracket issue to my dealer, and had them take them off my truck.

No problem! I noticed mine hit the dealer frame when I brought it home, in the quiet garage you could actually hear the gate rub against it while opening.

CAD Model Of The 6 Ft Bed

Started to create a CAD Solid Model of the bed on my Supercab today.

I've got some projects I want to build, such as a wooden support structure to hold 4' x 8' sheets of lumber and thought having a CAD model would make it easier for me to design the structure.
