There's almost no movement/play on the mounts. The 1" bend braces it against the lip, or edge, of the bed itself. That coupled with the t-slot nuts make for a pretty sturdy mount.

Most of the rail-type mounts I've seen don't require a lower attachment point, with the exception of the HiLift one.

Thanks guys! I just finished my T-Mount yesterday, so I just need to paint the mounts and then I will take more pictures and possibly include instructions/dimensions for the addtl. mounts I built.

Total spent: under $70 for everything (including the Quick Fists)
Mounts Built: Hi-Lift mount, combination Shovel & Axe mount, T-Mount for my Mag-Light, Fire Extinguisher, and Hatchet.

It turned out good...it's exactly how I pictured it in my head.

Just need to add a bottom brace for the fire extinguisher (the Quick-Fist holds it fine, but just to be safe) and I'm gonna Plasti-Dip the bottom 45° bend on each mount after painting for added protection and cushioning. I will actually be using Plasti-Dip for it's intended purpose

NP man, thanks for the good feedback! I really enjoy it. I feel kind of like a tech doing write-ups for a magazine publication, but with out the getting paid part.

Either way, I like to do mods, I'm frugal, I enjoy building things, and I have very limited tools and resources, so usually I have to get creative with some things. Sometimes it works - other times it doesn't.

I would like to get into ACTUAL fabrication and metal work though. I really want to build my own armor (skids, bumpers, tire-carrier etc.). That's where the real fun and expertise is at.

I have two of the large quick fists that came with my bestop. Any idea what else I could use them for besides an exstinguisher?

(Previous owner used the large ones to secure the butt stocks of rifles/shotguns)
