Thumbs up HI LIFT jacks

I just picked up my HI LIFT and love it. Its already payed for itself fixing a tire on our tractor. It fits in my toolbox but i want to mount it on the box and it must be locked. I have found 2 Hi-Lift mounting plates but witch one do i need or do i need both i think one is the 4XRAC and one is LCKRAC i may be wrong but it looks like i need the first one. Do i need 2 or 3 brackets to mount on the toolbox? Guys with the jack mounted post a pic and what you used. Also need help with sliders I want them to be able to support the weight of the truck. So a weld on slider is what i want. Who has the best for the money

That's great. I'll probably do that when I get my sliders. That's the 48" hi lift right?

Here is mine mounted on the right side of my bed using the 4xrac. I do have a small lock on it.n I fabbed up some plates for the reverse side of the bed so it is mounted more securely.

I do. These are bolt on (or you can have them welded) and I've never seen any pics of other brands being Hi Lift tested, but I have heard stories of them failing.

Love this setup!!

Can you be more specific as to what kind of plates you fabbed and how you installed this? I want to replicate your setup on my truck. Thanks!

Just went to Home depot and picked up some metal 1/8" thick steel plates. I cut them to size and drilled holes through them. I then painted them and mounted them on the reverse side (inside the fender) and put washers and nuts on them. Not a hard process at all. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures but then again, it is not difficult to do.
