73 Ambassador Please Help Me Identify This...

Am just starting work and I can't determine what the heck this is stick out out in front on the undercarriage. There is a handle of sorts that Ys out and is attached to the frame. It has a mount directly below the plug where you connect the lights to the truck. I'd appreciate anyone who can tell me before I do anything to it. Many thanks in advance.

...and Merry Christmas everyone.

Yes, spare tire rack. Warning don't put a flat tire into it. A flat tire can slide out while going down the road.
