its not hard....just use the tow hooks or the rear bumper as a lift point. Since these trucks dont have side lift points thats all you can really use.

Hitch is about the only place in the back, maybe where the front tow hooks are in the front with a block of wood. When we do the bumper(s) on my truck, we're adding blocks for the hi-lift to fit into.

Yeah I was thinking about it the other day when I was looking at it in northern tool and I don't have anywhere to jack it up in the front. I'll wait until I get a front hitch to get one. Or sliders

Another good way to use the jack (if you don't have a receiver or bumper adapter) is to wrap a strong tie-down (I think they make a special tool for this) through the holes in your wheel and lift if from there.

The padlock will keep the "honest" people out atleast. But just a quick second with bolt cutters.
You should go pick up some wire-loom to hide the wiring for the lights, and protect them from chafing against metal.

Looks good.

When you start to use it, it will scratch the original paint a bit, and after 6 months there is rust along all the sliding parts. Even with a tonneau cover to protect mine, the condensation in the morning makes the highlift a rust bucket. Every month I soak the mechanics of it with white lithium grease to keep it working well.

They sell neoprene covers for it, that will prevent the rust.
