Hi-Lift Installed!

I got my 48" Hi-Lift, mounting brackets and the flat think that you put under the jack when in the dirt(Not pictured). Any way I got all that from a local 4x4 shop trying to get rid of their showroom inventory for $120.
Also there are some pictures of my toolbox, my full size spare and bur bur bed carpet. Oh the back pack has some recovery gear in it, there's more in the toolbox too.

Enjoy!

Just an FYI, the jack mounts are a royal PITA to mount there and I had to recruit my sister to help me with it for a while... she wasn't to thrilled about it, but she did love playing with the air tools.

The Hi-Lift brand 48" at $80 is what I've seen them for most of the time. I like mine. I just need to mess with it more.

It is a royal pain in the butt to mount there, just an FYI. You will have to have one person inside the bed tightening the bolts and one getting dirty under the truck. holding the nuts.

Very nice. But you got ripped. I got my 60" cast for $70 something and you can find the rest of that stuff cheaper on ebay.

Bed mounts are definitely a pita!!

Had to be crooked that way to fit in there with the Spare and the toolbox. It's a tight fit in there. You can't really tell because the pictures are at an angle, but the mounting bracket is about as far forward as possible or I couldn't get the wing nuts off.

For around here it's a good price and the guy is struggling to keep his company a float so I didn't mind anyway.

They make brackets for mounting hi-lifts to roll bars.
