problem #2

Ram 3500

  • 117,000 miles


The cable holding the spare tire in place broke. The spare fell of the truck, the tire weights close to 90 to 100 lbs, while traveling around 60 mph. I was flagged by a motorist who was behind me at the time. He stated the tire came off my and bounced into the other opposing lane. A car had to use the shoulder and ditch to avoid the full size spare tire. By the time I found a place to turn around and go back to the aprox location I did not find the spare. The cable holding the tire broke about 6 inches below the winch. By the number replacement winches being sold lost tire reports its only a matter of time before an injury. The cable will not break while the truck is standing still. I have removed the winch from my truck and am saving it.

White sprinter van with 28,000 with premature rusting on sides and rear door. Vehicle has to be sprayed off daily to keep the small metallic brake dust from adhering to van. The paint is too thin with no clear coat.
