    That's not me but it's one in action.

    48" seems to be the most common on the Taco's due to lack of space to store a 60" but if you have the room then by all means get the biggest possible. They typically are under $100.

    Do you have the Yamaha fxho? Those are sick waverunners! and being that your in Miami you have some great riding to.

    Not sure, but seems in the pic that the guy is lifting from the hitch, that's a big no-no since the vehicle can tip to the sides when both wheels are off the ground, this is not safe at all, proper way to do it is from one of the sides of the bumper (If the bumper can hold) or at the sliders.
    Always keep 3 wheels in the ground when using a Hi Lift of farm jack on your vehicle, some people will go as far as having one person full time at the jack just to be sure.

    I can assure you it wasn't going side to side. Both rear wheels were still in the hole a decent ways. He did that so he could put some wood under the tires. but thanks for the heads up.

    TRD skid painted black,
    Picked up a 60" all cast at amazon for a pretty good price.
    I did have to remove the foot and hook to mount on the right side of the bed.
    I have a push pin to mount the foot so that goes on quick.
    The hook needs a 3/4" wrench which I need to take off the jack from my mount anyway so I figure it's worth the little extra time to have a 60".

    48" will work fine and easier to find room to mount it.

    Just make sure you have a good aftermarket rear bumper or hitch and some solid rock sliders to jack the truck up on.

    I always had a tonneau cover on mine so I never really took pictures....:rolleyes:

    If you search online google or google images or even Hi-Lifts website for "Loc Rac" - it'll show you how it mounts under the lip of your bed.

    Another option is the 4XRac system - again, on Hi-lifts website.

    I have used a high lift that way to get out of hole, jack it up and push the truck over.

    Haha. I'd imagine it just wasn't cut out for the job. For the Taco that's a walk in the park though.


    Check out this thread for mounting. I've also seen on the bed side(inside) and also along the tracks in the bed.
