Gotta agree with Creativepart about waiting for Coachnet or Ford roadside assistance especially on a cold rainy nite on the freeway. I am moving my spare indoors to the rear storage though to make it a little easier to get at and free up space underneatth for the fence post slinky mod

I posted this once before, but I'll repost the pics.
On our Lexi I replaced the lightweight class 3 hitch with a class 5 heavy duty hitch, not for the extra towing capacity, but for the strength.
Bought the Roadmaster heavy duty dual 2" receiver. Bought a Curt Spare Tire Mount for 2" receivers.
Here's what everything looks like. Its rock solid, super strong, and easy to access the spare (which I'll change myself), and still allows me to tow our Subaru.

Since I don't have free coachnet anymore, I will have the tire changed, back on the road then at the CC doing some serious drinking while you are waiting for coachnet to show up
