TACOMA PICKUP 2005-UP
Lower spare tire for access to winch mechanism mounted in the center section of the frame X-member and locate two stamped 3/4" holes directly behind the winch.
Place the U-shaped mounting bracket between the back side of the winch and the frame X-member. Position the U-bracket over the left side 3/4" hole as shown on in picture at left. Used the provided 3/8" bolt, lock nut and two flat washers to attach the U-bracket to the frame X-member.
Place 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 the spare tire while allowing the lower end of the lock bar to pass through the lug hole least obstructed by the winch cable retaining plate in the center of the wheel. The lock bar must remain vertical as spare tire is returned to the full up/stored position.
STANDARD SERIES LOCKING INSTRUCTIONS: The PVC bar cover/seal is designed to center and hold the lock 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.
