got a high-lift and fab'd up some mounts

i got a "handy man" off craigslist for $30 bucks. its whats highlifts used to be called. but when i look them up on the internet they say they were green and looked way different so idk. mine looks exactly like the all cast version now a days. any way it was all black when i got it and i painted it black and gray..looks like the extreme version now. also came with a 3/4 clevis thing...the U shaped mount things that every one has on there bumpers. then i fabbed up some mounts and now it fits it there perfect and tight and doesnt move at all. i still need to figure out how to lock it up....how do the 4xracks work. cause i dont think i could drill through the stainless bolts to but a lock in and still have them work good. also i had to weld one of the wingnuts to a regular nut with a washer in between because u couldnt turn the wingnut once u got so far down cause part of the jack got in the way. anyway pics

I mounted a 60" one in my truck! But i used the 4xRac which look a lot like the ones you made, except the bolt is longer and has a hole in it to lock it, which I have yet to do LoL.... I had to massage the back of my bed near the tailgate with a BFH to make it fit right!
