Spare Tire Question

Morning everyone

lemme throw this out there, I do computers, not cars (but im not afraid to get my hands dirty =P) so bear with me

I've had my ranger for about 3 years now, and I bought it used.

a couple months after I bought the pickup, i realized it didnt have a spare tire, jack, or tire iron. Aside from feeling like an idiot for not checking, it wasnt to big of a deal, i just got a tire put on an old rim when I got new tires, and picked up a jack/tire iron from autozone.

My question involves the whole system for keeping the tire under the bed, i've just been having it sit in the bed, which is kind of inconvenient.

My old ranger had a big wingnut and a chain i believe, but after doing a little research on the 2001, i've read things about a tire lock and winch system... needless to say I'm clueless.

I dont have a key at all, and no jack bag, i've checked behind the wee seats in tbe ext. cab and theres nothing there.

My question is, where can i get a new key/parts, and does someone have a diagram/photo of what parts should be there that are involved in the tire-carrier system. I can provide a photo under the my bed if necessary. I honestly dont know if im even missing any parts.

Any reply is appreciated, Thanks!
