Ok, so I have been afford man for 20 some years. was out checking cows this morning and had a flat tire on the front of my 2016 f150. As per normal location the spare is up underneath the box. they made a vast improvement on the anti-theft device for the spare tire, I will give them kudos there. After that it goes downhill big time. On extended cabs your jack, tire tool, & breaker bar are underneath the back seat on the passenger side. So I go to get that stuff and there's nothing there. next spot on a Ford is underneath the hood on the passenger firewall and again nothing. So I call the dealer where I got the vehicle ask for the service department. inquire as to the location of the Jack and they say is as I suspected underneath the backseat which there's nothing there. a kind of apologize for the inconvenience and I say well it's not your problem somebody forgot to put that stuff in when they were assembling it. she says well we will have to you'll have to talk to the salesman to see what we can do about it and I say okay and when you let it hang up.
Head into town to get my tire fixed because the spare tire will not come down because the wrench that's supposed to let it down does not want to fit in the hole. in the visiting with that guy that's fixing my tire he says they're Chrysler comes with an air compressor and a can of Fix-A-Flat but no tools. which I had noticed that when my mother was car shopping here this summer. granted this is a pickup and I am there are at least smart enough not to put on a donut it's an actual 10 ply tire. as far as I can tell there is no machining or anything done for the location where the Jack, Jack handle, and tire iron should be. Shirley Henry Ford's ancestors weren't cheap enough that they put in a good spare tire and steel wheel with in there too dang cheap to throw in the stuff to get the spare tire down out of the frame and be able to change the damn thing?
before I call the dealership and chew but I just thought I would see if anybody else has found this out. I even had to use a Chevy tire iron to get the dang nuts off! kind of a sad deal if they provide the tire but they don't provide everything else to go with it. kind of like me making a blow up doll with the boobs inflate but the rest of it not being anatomically correct 😡
