    I’m going to purchase a Hi-Lift all-cast jack. I see they sell the Loc-Rac (LR-200) for mounting to the bed rail but I’m not sure about the compatibility of this with our bed rails. I’m wondering what others have done to secure/mount a Hi-Lift holder in the bed of their Tacos.

    A 5/8 bolt will fit inside the rails on the bed. you just need to remove the mounting bolts to get the head to slide down the track. Then use a flat washer and a nut to secure the bolt to the rail. Then you will have to use a 5/8 drill bit to make the hole in the high lift round instead of oval, use another flat washer and nut and you have a hi lift mount for about $4.00. I did it on my truck for my huge hi lift and it worked fine.

    ^ yeah but the ATO one is ~$70 and the 4xrac is ~$25

    Although it's a great product, I'm way too cheap for that.

    I'll just make my own for less than $10. Don't worry. I'll make sure to get bolts made in USA :rolleyes:

    And it won't hold a candle to Kevin's product.

    Oswego is right. Quality costs money. I'll gladly pay it, having seen his approach to building products.

    I'm not doubting his product. In fact I think it looks beefy as hell and I probably won't be able to create something as beefy.

    But no need to bash me because I won't buy the product. I like the product, just wouldn't pay ~$70 for it

    If you're going to knock me on what I can potentially make, at least figure out why I would make instead of buying one

    $10 isn't going to get you anywhere in the neighborhood of the ATO mount. That's not a bash on you, that's market rate prices. The raw materials couldn't be purchased for $10.

    Say you're going to make your own without a price cap and I don't have shit to say.

    First of all, you are right. Is was wrong of me to bash the price. In fact, I'm going to revise those comments on both this thread and that. Fact is, I'm cheap. I do a lot of things on my own and join in on other GBs because I am indeed cheap. But you are right about that and I'll take care of those posts.

    Second, you must seem to like calling out people because in the majority of threads I see you on, YOU are the one making DB comments. Granted there are a lot of posts where you help people out (which I do recognize and appreciate), but that does not make things okay for you to be an ass to other people.

    I for one have been modding my truck for longer than you have even owned truck. My truck isn't as decked out as a lot of the trucks on here, including yours, but for you to call me out ad even think I can't fab something up is just dumb. I've done "home made" mods and although my stuff is no where near the quality of the vendors on here, I still do my own mods. I'm surprised you haven't done your usual research to find out what I have done.

    I know its a bit late, but I dont think paying tons of coin for something like that is the "better" option really. I see no reason the bolts through the channel with the washers idea would not hold up?? Has that idea failed on someone here before? If so, that is the kind of wheeling that warrants spending $70 bucks on bent steel and bolts that secure it in a "heavy duty" manner. I cannot see myself doing anything hard enough in my truck that I would rip the jack off the rails with the bolts still attached. Thats just me though, I say if you can make things your self it is much better, you learn what works and what wont you also learn your level of designing skills and what you should or should not attempt. Save the money (unless you wheel really hard) and build it yourself.
