    Re: Has anybody attempted to install a electric spare tire hoist?

    I have the stock spare in place but carry (2) 12 volt air compressors and a tire plug kit in a small Snap-on bag behind the rear seats, have never needed it for any of my trucks, but have fixed friends and even a few strangers that were broke down with tire issues on the side of the road, I also have (2) cans of Fix-a-Flat if there is no other choice and have to get the car/truck out of that area, of course with that you will be replacing the pressure sensor but sometimes you need to get out of a bad area. I would not use the stock spare unless there is no option, you may find in "playing around" with the spare that you can use some different socket wrench parts to get the spare in and out much easier than with the stock tools.

    How many flat tires do you guys get? Have not had one in my last 12 Escalade's, and only one on one of my 6 Suburban's in the mid 90's, and I drive over 100k miles a year.

    I think a lot of it pertain to the area you drive. In a big city like NYC. I have had 2 in one year.

    Thanks guys. I have never had one! Of course Ill probably get one today just for saying that lol. Point is to make it functional. With that bumper either take it off or modify it. I chose to keep it and still function. Beside who likes to play with the spare tire hardware for 5 minutes when it takes 3 seconds to do with this.

    The simplest solution I found is "AAA" but that's not always Johnny on the spot! In case I'm in a bad area I depend on .45

    Like in the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly ""You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig. "
    Nah, the .45 is to ward off evil spirits while waiting on "AAA".
