    Nice! No need for quik-fists when you can just drill it! :D

    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).

    Looks good, but don't the holes weaken the handles? I've broken ax and shovel handles before, and they didn't have holes drilled through them.

    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 just read through the OP, and realized I listed the right-angle bends as 45° instead of 90°. :facepalm:I must've been pretty tired or something

    I'm surprised no one else caught that or called me out.

    Fixed

    Update: I didn't use Tslot nuts in the rails and just used bigger nuts that would catch and they are holding up fine. I was afraid of them slowly becoming loose but a month later and 2 small wheeling trips and daily driving and they are still snug. 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.
