winch for spare tire

The spare wheel is mounted on the passenger side of the driver´s cabin. Lifting / lowering the wheel is done with a crank, either a winch or a chain hoist. This is cumbersome, slow, and requires some effort.

The manual winch was replaced with a small electric winch from HornTools. The winch is mounted inside the engine compartment and is operated from the cab via a remote control cable.

In addition, the spare wheel holder had to be changed due to the larger tires, as the tires rub against the cab and cannot be fitted properly. The spare wheel was moved 4cm upwards and 4cm to the back, now the wheel sits perfectly in the middle between the cab and the exhaust pipes.
