Mine just got jacked the other day... fml

Cost me $100 to replace it with a ugly used tire (got the same rim tho)... and now i can"t mount it back under the car because they cut the cord

Get a 6" peice of Unistrut from homedepot and a few cable clamps ( like small "U" clamps made for securing braided cable) use at least two. Tread the cable through the hole in the unistrut, secure with clamps and crank it up. Same thing happened on my F150 work truck.

i might just be a little slow because its morning time, but Im not sure im following.. are you talking about how to put the tire back up in place without buying a new spare tire carrier?

I was assuming you still had the cable and just the end was cut off. I was suggesting the unistrut and clamps to attach to the cable in order hold the wheel up. (in place of the piece that was cut off.)
