SPARE TIRE THEFT PROTECTION
Lower spare tire for access to the winch mechanism attached to the lower side of the frame cross-member. Insert the special black PVC bushing between the front and rear face plates on the right side of the winch mechanism. Install the U-bracket against the face plate using the provided 3/8" mounting bolt, flat washers and locknut. Position the U-bracket as pictured and tighten the mounting bolt.
Install the lock bar through the holes in both legs of the U-bracket, with the grooved end facing toward the right side frame rail. Place the crimp-ring retainer in the groove and crimp closed with pliers.
Raise spare tire while guiding the lower end of lock bar through lug hole least obstructed by the winch cable retaining plate in the center of the wheel. The lock bar must remain vertical as the spare tire is raised to the full up/stored position.
STEP FOUR The PVC bar cover/seal is designed to center and hold the lock firmly against the tapered surface of the lug hole. Hold lock inverted with the PVC cover/seal end up. Place lock over the end of the lock bar. Slide lock upward against the tapered surface of the lug hole and rotate to engage lock mechanism with the lock bar groove.
