Hi, i wanted to know if there is any way to remove the spare tire under the truck? I don't have the toyota supplied tool kit. Any suggestions!?

you can do it by hand... use a cresent wrench and turn the rod... i've done it before when it was too much of a PITA to get the tools out. this is assumeing its not rusted closed. although this might differ between the models.

you can get a piece of rolled steel rod from the hardware store, then bend a crank handle into it. when that's done, weld a piece of 1/4" flat bar to the end of the rod to engage the slot in the holder.

There is no way to reach the cranky thingie on the older designs - *something* has to reach in there to engage the crank. The crank handle is like 3 feet long. I used the crank from my F150 - it has a hook on the end that hooks onto a ring on the screw jack. It worked fine. (no rust.)

If it's rusted, it may not matter if you have the tools or not.

There are two kinds. One the rod goes in at an angle into a little gearbox on the driver side. With this one you can use the cresent wrench idea (I recommend vice grips though). This type uses a cable to hold the tire. This kind is A LOT more prone to getting rusted than the other kind...

Straight in. There is no gearbox, etc - the rod goes straight in. You will have to have something to stick through there. This type uses a chain to hold the tire.

If you can't get the winch mechanism to work, the thing to do is let the air out of the tire (hopefully they mounted it valve stem down, otherwise this gets a little interesting) and press it up with a jack and a board across it. This will give you a very slight amount of slack to be able to cut the cable/chain and free the spare tire.

My 92 runner uses cable and an offset gear box that drives a second shaft.

my 94 truck uses a direct drive (straight on) and cable. Ive had my cable break when 4wheeling. It currently is holding the tire on with two hardware store horeshoe clamps.

Ah HA! I just remembered where those metric bolts laying on the work bench came from (been driving me crazy!) They held the spare tire winch. Glad that's cleared up...
