    Does such an accessory exist?

    Each month, I check my spare tie pressure, and each month,
    I get tired of manually cranking down the spare because the damn value stem points upward, toward the bed, instead of downward, like it does on my Dodge Ram. (And, yes, a tried an, expensive, "high quality" valve extender, and all that did was let the air out!) A small, power winch hoist, to do the lowering/raising for me, at the press of a button, would be REALLY nice!

    Has anyone heard of this kind of accessory? (I searched the Internet and couldn't find anything. Maybe I'm just dreaming.)

    I flipped the spare so the valve stem faces down.

    OK. Makes sense. I actually thought of that but wasn’t sure you could mount it upside down. The owner’s manual advises against it. (But who reads, let alone pays attention, to the manual anyway?). :)

    Thanks

    You mounted the spare tire on your front bumper?

    I took the spare tire off @OR17TRD’s truck and store it in my truck bed. He just doesn’t know it yet. He’ll find out when he gets a flat. Lol.
