id go with somthn of the design of the second one you posted. mine is a ORI angled spare carier and i converted it from being permanently mounted to pins like the rat cage.

cause it was a pain when i wanted to use the full bed and had to unbolt it, now i just take out the pins

i lik the 2nd one also but not the price! lol

i thought about drilling the holes in the bed, then having nuts welded to the bottom side of the bed and then just running a bolt throught the holes and screwing it into the nut to secure the carrier......

or i thought about some type of a uni-strut design to were i bolt a rail to the bed floor, then attact the carrier to it somehow....

I thought the fabtech one was setup as so:

3 mounting plates, you drill and bolt them into the bed. Then the carrier slips into the rear two and onto the long bolt up top, then a wing nut goes on the bolt up top, it's held in. You can take it out very easy.

If I'm not mistake, thats how it is, my friend used to have on in his yota.

I like the one Griggs has set up with his toolbox. May be something to look into.

On a side note: Junkyard was closed due to it being a holiday weekend I guess. I'll be out there though later this week. PM me if you happen to find one before then.

i think it bolts in, maybe he modded his, if so thats a pretty sweet idea cause i went to buy one but didnt cause i was scared to bolt it to the bed and not be able to use it when i needed it....

no thinks....i want to keep my tailgate....nice idea for a trail rig though.....

i may modify the fabtech one to be able to take in and out..........maybe make some pieces that allow the back of it(were there are 2 points incontact with the bed) slip into it and for the front doing the welded bolt idea to the front mount.....maybe a bolt welded under the bed and one on top for added strength....

Doc used a James Duff bumper I think. It had space for a jerry can, hi-lift, and a full size spare. It looked like that tiregate thing but didn't replace the tailgate.

^ yeah that thing was perty sweet.

the welding nuts to the bottom of the bed is a perty good idea.. i might do that one of these days. cause mine is just pins and its tight enough, but there is still a little play in it so it sqeeks a little.

I have seen what your talking about. A while back i compiled some photos of angled mounts to fab up one of my own and saved the only photo i could find displaying the quick release. I dont remember who makes it or what its called but it did have the quick release design.

Here is the photo i have saved to my hdd:
