    I recently took delivery of a few new products from C4 Fabworks including a jack mount, jack spacer, oil bottle rack and a fire extinguisher mount.

    The jack skid locks into a mounting cradle with a spring loaded pin and can be padlocked kinda like the Raceworks skids that we use on the trophy and chase trucks, but at a fraction of the price. C4 has skids and mounts available for various Harbor Freight and Craftsman jacks, just make sure you have the right model jack because HF has a few variations of their 1.5 ton jack.

    I also got this oil bottle holder, which holds 4 quarts nice and snug

    C4 also has a really reasonably priced fire extinguisher mount that I bolted to my bed

    I'm really happy with the craftsmanship and how nicely everything fit in my bed. I've owned/worked with a number of other jack skids, oil bottle racks and extinguisher mounts over the years and must say that C4's are some of my favorites.

    Was just looking at the 2 ton skid yesterday from c4. Do you happen to know if the jack extension will fit a harbor frieght 2 ton jack? I'm going with the 2 ton because I want to be able to fully droop my suspension. The fire extinguisher mount looks pretty sweet as well.

    I like that fire extinguisher mount, but shows out of stock? Does it need to be fabbed up?

    They are working on a spacer for the 2 ton HF jack, it will be available soon.

    I ordered mine when it was "out of stock" too, but I got a confirmation email and it arrived along with everything else.

    Are you able to get your truck to droop all the way in the front with the 1.5 ton jack & spacer? Does it seem to lift ok even though there is more weight on it?

    That would be me. Glad you like it, should be easy for most capable fabricators to replicate. The cross brace is removable.

    I like it a lot, mine as a support tube from the main and angles down to the back bedbolt, gets in the way all the time

    Just read through your build page, awesome truck! Going to have to go with a similar setup for the bed cage!

    Update: It's been a few months and I'm still really pleased with everything I got from C4 Fabworks. I went ahead and ordered another jack mount/skid for a 2-ton jack.

    Long Term Update:

    C4 Fabworks has EXCELLENT customer service and I hope to continue to do business with them.

    I've taken the truck out for 2 testing/tuning trips as well as a few races. Did 2 preruns at speed and some chasing as well. Got to use my C4 jack mount system when we went to rescue a stranded photographer that didn't think to bring a spare or jack.

    Everything performed flawlessly and I couldn't ask for anything more.
