How to mount a Delta shovel to your vehicles spare tire

Supplies needed:
- 3' of 7/16" threaded rod
- 3' of 1/2" electrical conduit
- 9 7/16" nuts, 12 1/2" washers
- 272 Loctite, hacksaw
- Drill with 7/16" bit
- Metal file
- Measuring tape
- Pencil or marker.

Note: the length of rod and electrical conduit you need depends on the offset of your mount from your tire (e.g., a 35" tire will have greater offset than a 31" tire, estimate accordingly.)

Instructions:
Step 1: Measure the offsets and cut threaded insert and electrical conduit.
Step 2: Remove spare tire and using washers and nuts affix the threaded insert.
Step 3: Drill the back of the mount to where you want to mount it.
Step 4. Put the tire back on after inserting threaded rod with nuts and washers from the back of the wheel.
Step 5: Insert Offsets (electrical conduit).
Step 6 Affix mount with washers and nuts. Use 272 Locktite on all nuts to keep from vibrating off.
Step 7: Insert your shovel and lock mount with a lynch pin or master lock.
