Where is the spare tire stored on a van? My SUV has its spare tire underneath, but on the smaller SUVs you see the spare tire on the tailgate.

My father taught me how to change a tire, because I was driving and pulling a two horse trailer to rodeos almost every weekend from spring to fall, which means I had 4 truck tires and 4 trailer tires on the road, with a lot of weight. He used to make me rotate my tires so that he knew without a doubt that I could change a tire if necessary.

But, the tires on my SUV are big (factory but big SUV = big tires) and I don't know if I could lift one of them or not. BTW, on trucks and SUVs, you don't get one of those small funny looking spare tires. Trucks and SUVs are required by law to have a full size regular spare tire, because of the vehicle weight, payload capacity and trailer towing capacity.

I recommend that all of you guys know how to change a tire. Also, make sure you have a tire wrench that looks like a big "+". That way, you have a lot of leverage, because you can use your foot and hands or even jump on it to break the nuts loose.

Always remember, with screws, bolts and nuts, "lefty loosey, righty tighty".
.
What a good skill honestly one i should practice too.
My van is a stow n go and the spare is up under the van literally a pain the a$$ to get to.

emmakate7: Good job having hubby install your new laundry room floor. That is money saved. Cool on the new 4' x 8' shelf. BTW, what is melamine? Under $3 each is a great price for a movie date. Hope you guys had a great time.

CocoaDiva43: Hi CocoaDiva. We messed you. Glad that you and your hubby had a wonderful vacation.

Melamine is the white coated boards used for shelving and cabinets

A few years ago I was leaving a mall parking garage and I saw an older woman standing by her car bent over looking at her tire. I watched her stare at it a bit. I almost thought she thought it would fix itself. I changed it for her and went on my way. I know I can change one if I have to but now I carry a quick inflate pump that goes in my lighter. I got it on clearance about 12 years ago for $7.44. Best money I ever spent. I have used it dozens of times for myself and younger women on the road. Also, highly recommend AAA. I got it for DD when she started driving and it covers her even when she is in someone else's car.

Dh had my car service before we went on vacation it so important to have your spare tire check very offer...Just in case something do happen, I have this service on my cell phone if something do happen they change my tire and tow my car up to 100 miles for free and bring gas....

Great inflate pump....

We're looking forward to seeing your continued progress.

While we wish you luck in having an explosive second half of the year, just remember, your goal is very aggressive, so if it doesn't explode like you plan and want it to, don't get frustrated, in that case, stay on the course that you are on. All I'm saying is, we want you to be successful in achieving debt freedom. Good luck!
.
I already have placed the things I needed for this huge push. It is paying little to nothing for needs (sans food) and securing the last credit card debt at 0%. I can pay this debt and the state taxes off by year's end.

The brilliant thing about the Zip Car review is that the cheaper car rental is 1.5 miles one way. I already have little interest in driving. My license sat expired for nearly six month and I just walked 35k in the past 2.5 days in 32c/87f (6 weeks post dental surgery). There must be a real need for an auto. I received an email yesterday morning offering a free $10 credit if a car is booked by 7/31. My son and I have dental appointments next month on the same day. This means the cost of the auto for my appointment is free.

I am changing cell phone providers. I found a new provider which will provide a $20 credit for switching and save $120 a year on service.

I am done holiday shopping except for my son. I paid $8.30 for $182.49 worth of gifts (which includes holiday gifts for my mother in 2018). I am trying to complete 10,000 points with Achievemint to earn $10 towards his gifts. My progress until now has been hindered by the teeth issue and associated illness..
