OMG, this is hilarious! After dealing with a flat tire last night, I was thinking were the heck is the jack and wrench. Boom, it was right there all the time. :)

So, what's up with all the cut outs under the mat surrounding the tire? Some of them look pretty specific and it would be cool to find out what they are meant to hold.

When I was Into crotch rocket sport bikes we did that every 2nd year. Three or four years out your brake fluid can begin to gel up and make for a slightly mushy pedal. Most never notice it.
Ha, I'm still into sport bikes even at my old age... although the knees don't bend like they used to. Not sure how many more track days I'll be able to get in.

As I type this I am waiting for my BF to come back with a tire iron so that I can change my flat tire on my outer banks Bronco. Never before have I even looked at the spare or jack till tonight to find no tire iron. I am only thankful that we are out of town and not stuck on the road back home in - 20 below because I would be more irrate! Apparently this is a common thing.

Why not use the roadside assistance that comes with new Ford vehicles and can be accessed through the FordPass app?

You mean the lug wrench? If you look at the side of the scissor jack you will see a wing nut, the tool to remove the lugs and crank the jack is folded in there

That's a lug wrench? That's why I always carry a REAL one. They have more leverage and save your knuckles. I used to spend a lot of time in Baja and carried a jack board and hydraulic jack too. Those little scissor jacks are scary. Now I just call AAA and USAA and see who can come the fastest.

😂 I was the exact same way the first time I pulled mine out. I believe I found my answer in the manual or maybe saw someone do it on YouTube for another ford vehicle. Glad you got it figured out and now you know you’re not the only one that was fooled.

I will use AAA or Fords roadside assistance unless it's a real emergency or I am in a location they can't get to.
You should know where the spare tire and supporting tools are as well as be familiar with how to use them just in case.

Engine covers for 1.5l models, screw-in rear recovery loop, rear hatch release button panel, all the things that mysteriously disappeared during build history.

Look carefully and you'll find spots for "left socks from clothes dryer" too. :)
