    I havent been on here in a while, but i got my hi-lift, and have had that and my shovel rolling around the bed for a while, so i finally got some uni-strut and some hardware for the lift, then i bought a set of Quick Fists from Cabelas for the shovel. I will post pics tomorrow when its light out. I'll also be welding my light tabs on :D

    nice! i need to look into picking up a high lift jack now that i'm lifted and a shovel is always a good idea. i like how you mounted them up simple and creative+looks great!

    thanks man! and yea mines still stock but i cant lift it with any stock jacks, even a shop floor jack wouldn't lift it as high as i needed it to go. I'm waiting on my sliders and front tube bumper now. I'll admit, i got the harbor freight special on this jack. $50 farm jack haha. it works though.

    Mounts look good!

    If you haven't already come up with a solution on lifting high enough to clear the droop with a 'regular' floor jack -
    you can always stack a 4x4 or 6x6 piece of wood on top of your jack then jack up the truck. gets you that extra height and any 3 or 6 ton floor jack ought to be able to reach high enough.

    Very good I like it. If you don't have it you may want to get the base plate for the high lift. Makes it much more stable, especially in sand.

    Nice. I mounted my shovel with the use of a WWll army jeep mount for the shovel end, and a HiLift bracket (the hinged type with wingnut) for the handle end. It's worked great for years and years.

    I like it. I would recommend though that you use a small length of rubber hose as a lock washer. I did on my ARB Hi-Lift mount and it hasn't stopped working like lock washers do (they also rust in time...). The hose compresses much better and more evenly.

    Thanks, yea I ordered the isolater and I forgot about the base stand, I should get that though. That's also a good idea with the hose, I meant to paint everything so it wouldn't rust but I figuredthe wear would make it rust anyways.

    Interesting. I wonder how these will hold up to the heat/UV exposure here in AZ. I like the idea of mounting the hi lift and shovel over the wheel wells, so it doesn't really take up that much space in the bed anyway.

    I'm sure it would do fine, idk about the rubber, but all of my stuff is galvanized plumbing stuff so its pretty high grade shit, I don't think it gets as hot as AZ does in boston or at least as long as it does, but give it a shot!
