    I just picked up my HI LIFT and love it. Its already payed for itself fixing a tire on our tractor. It fits in my toolbox but i want to mount it on the box and it must be locked. I have found 2 Hi-Lift mounting plates but witch one do i need or do i need both i think one is the 4XRAC and one is LCKRAC i may be wrong but it looks like i need the first one. Do i need 2 or 3 brackets to mount on the toolbox? Guys with the jack mounted post a pic and what you used. Also need help with sliders I want them to be able to support the weight of the truck. So a weld on slider is what i want. Who has the best for the money

    :popcorn: to your other questions but your sliders don't have to be weld on to support the weight of the truck they just have to be attached to the frame.

    That's great. I'll probably do that when I get my sliders. That's the 48" hi lift right?

    Here is mine mounted on the right side of my bed using the 4xrac. I do have a small lock on it.n I fabbed up some plates for the reverse side of the bed so it is mounted more securely.

    I do. :thumbsup: These are bolt on (or you can have them welded) and I've never seen any pics of other brands being Hi Lift tested, but I have heard stories of them failing.

    Love this setup!!

    Can you be more specific as to what kind of plates you fabbed and how you installed this? I want to replicate your setup on my truck. Thanks!

    Just went to Home depot and picked up some metal 1/8" thick steel plates. I cut them to size and drilled holes through them. I then painted them and mounted them on the reverse side (inside the fender) and put washers and nuts on them. Not a hard process at all. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures but then again, it is not difficult to do.
