Notes: Spare Tire Hoist
Part came in timely fashion, appeared to be in working condition upon receipt - a little dinged up, which may have happened during shipping or could have been a restock. Either way, it goes under the truck, so cosmetics are not important. Upon attempting to install, realized bolt holes were not threaded as per OEM tire hoist, so delayed a day. Bought new bolts and locking nuts from local auto parts, along with appropriate size tap. After correcting manufacturer failings (for a few bucks), now seems to be working fine. Price was still considerably cheaper than a previous site in which I found it. Parts Geek seemed to do their part, short of this deficiency, so still gave 4 of 5 starts.
The tire hoist looks exactly like the one I will remove to use it. I am always surprised how fast my parts arrive from parts Geek.
I received the spare tire hoist for my pickup and had no trouble getting it installed and put to use. The holes were not threaded but I have a tap and die set and it only a couple minutes to thread the holes.
