Just got a flat tire on my pickup. The design that they have come up with needs some serious improvement. Thankfully I was just left the house when I realized I had a flat and had tools available. The whole carrier for the spare is all made of steel and was rusted together. It became almost an hour ordeal (with a couple breaks for a cold one ofcoarse). It would cost a little more but if it was January on the side of a highway i would happily pay another $100 on a truck if the assembly was made if stainless steel. When I put it back I'll clean it all up and coat in in never-seize but it's ridiculous that it has to be this way.
