    I recently bought a 2006 ISUZU Cabover. Well, technically, it is the Chevrolet rendition with the 6.0 L Gas engine.

    So far I have been happy with it. But I have a question. Where is the tire iron to loosen the lug nuts? I can't find it. :confused: Is it hidden somewhere or do they not come with them. I am afraid I will get a flat and not be able to do a simple change without it.

    If they don't come with one, does anyone know where to buy one? It is pretty big I measured +/- 40mm this morning and has to be pretty deep to reach the back wheels nuts.

    Also, any preferred sites to buy parts for these trucks online as opposed to the dealer?

    Thanks in advance.

    Mr Beaker.

    My Mitsi didn't come with any tire tools, not even a spare. I called the truck repair shop when I had tire problems. They had a compressor and the proper tools on thier service truck to do the job very easy.

    Even if it had one, I doubt you'd be able to break the lug nuts loose. Also you would have to have one hell of a jack to get the truck off the ground. Believe me...I've wondered the same thing.

    yeah, the regular car tire shops around here often cant even get the lugs off the small cabover trucks with their tools.

    This sucks but I have two words for you. Roadside assistance. I have a spare at home and no way to change mine either. I'm gonna see if AAA would cover it. It prob won't but it'd be worth it if it would.

    Bottle jack will lift it. I wouldn't even try to get those nuts off. Find a fleet service.

    What if you had a 4' piece of pipe and a mini sledge? That would get the nuts to turn.
