Exclamation Spare Tire Stolen.. Opinions?

Unfortunately my spare tire was stolen and they cut the cord that holds up the tire. FML

Today i went out and bought a new spare tire in preparation for a Mammoth trip. Only thing is now i cant put it under my car..

Any ideas on what to do? i already spent to much money to buy another spare tire and a new tow hitch etc.

Maybe i can attach another cord? any ideas would be helpful
Heres some pics.

The cable is supposed to come out of that orange/yellow spout in the top pic. But yes, they just clipped it off now its just a little sub, so i rolled it in.

Re: Spare Tire Stolen.. Opinions?

They got me too a few years ago, I was pissed! One thing I hate the most in this world is a freaking thief.
I now I saw a few of those on Ebay, give it a shot.

Re: Spare Tire Stolen.. Opinions?

Where did it happen? I know you're from up north here in Cali (as am I), just wondering where it all went down.

You can buy the whole part online.. it's relatively cheap. If you decide to go down that route, that is.

Im actually from southern cali lol i just have relatives in Sacramento so that explains the "Hella"
Most likely in my work parking lot (i work in a mall). its a big lot, and not enough security to watch the whole thing all day. And i didnt notice it till i got home. so thats my first guess and i just stuck with it.

Re: Spare Tire Stolen.. Opinions?

I've toyed with the idea of making a plate that clamps to the underside of the spare, blocking access to the cable. I figure a circle of sheet metal with some studs welded to it would work. Then use another circle on the top with holes for the studs, as a collar to hold the pieces together. This would leave nothing but a blank face of metal on the underside. Seems like that'd block the easy access to the clip in the middle.

Any welders out there?
