I ended up cranking out a few extra of these mounts for my brothers taco. Thanks again!
NP man! Glad you found it useful and were able to modify it to work with your soft-topper. Good on you for making some your your bro too!

Did you use my mount dimensions? just curious if they are working for people, or if any revisions/modifications are necessary (like what RDtres noted).
I used your drilling dimensions and no problems.

They probably do. I don't use them daily and will probably not need them for 90% of the time I go camping. I do want to find a way to keep the sheath on the axe. I might just take some of my Wet Okole neoprene and make a boot for it.

I don't live in the best of neighborhoods so I thought it would take a dipshit with no education longer to figure out how to unscrew a wing nut then to disconnect a quick fist. That is also why i mounted them in the front and not on the side. Its easy for 1 individual to just reach over and take it. At least this way if it's one person they would need to either walk around or get in the bed.

I did use foam fender washers and a small amount of blue Locktite though.

Just check the bolts/nuts once in a while. Great project because it does not require a machine shop to build these.

I built and painted mine on friday, Plasti Dipped them on sunday, and installed them on Monday. Great write up if was fun and easy! My high lift-extreme was a bit too long so I chopped off 3.375 inches and now it fits perfectly in my short bed. All I used to cut it was a hacksaw and a truck load of elbow grease.

I just used 3, 1/2 inch carriage bolts, washers, and wing nuts. Anti seize of course. Just pull the end cap on the rail and slide them in. Slide easier angled down a bit. Solid hold.

Sry. 3 1/2 long by 1/2 wide carriage bolts.
