I tried to sell this on eBay & couldn't. So if you want to pay for shipping, I'll ship it to you vs throwing it in the trash. Below is the text from the eBay ad. Since I got the idea off this board I figured I'd give back.

I made this when I had my 2002 F350 Superduty and Lance Cabover camper. This fits the factory spare tire lock (they're all the same, I'm told). The factory spare tire crank mechanism cannot be accessed when there's a camper installed - the long rod used to crank the spare tire down is too long to slide down the tube when a cabover camper is hanging down in the back (as almost all of them do).

I know this fits the 1999-2004 series F250 & F350 superduties that have a spare tire lock. I don't know if it fits other years or not.

This was made out of a factory Ford spare tire lock key, and craftsman 3/8" extensions with swivel. It's all been welded together and sprayed with cold zinc galvanizing compound to prevent rust. Both the camper and truck have long since been sold and this is no longer needed.

Don't be caught by surprise! Don't be forced to offload your camper on the side of the highway with a flat tire! This uses a standard 3/8" ratchet to raise & lower the spare tire. Fortunately I never had to use it on the side of the highway, but did use it in my driveway to test it out - just as I thought, the swivel in the middle of the two extensions allow the key to slide down the spare tire crank tube & miss the camper. It works GREAT! Note: ratchet is not included.

I didn't see a place in the classifieds to post free stuff, so forgive me if this is the wrong place.

PM me if you're interested. First person responding gets it.
