    I bought a 2004 Ram 2500 but it didn't have an owners manual. Does any one know how you take off the spare tire. Thanks

    If you look between the tailgate and bumper there's a little slot that you slide the tire iron into. Turn it and it will slowly lower the tire to the ground. It's on a cable system. Incase you didn't know the jack is under the passager seat.

    Just like what was said ^^. Put the appropriate tire iron in the slot (can't go wrong, only one of the three will work) and then attach the lug wrench to the end of the tire iron (I think it is a ball bearing on the end, so you can't mess that up). Once the tire is down on the ground giggle it around a little to get the metal holder loose and your all done. Good luck.
