    So far south in Texas my feet are in salt water
    Vehicle:
    04 4X4 Tacoma SR5
    3 in Ultimate ToyTec, set @ 2.5 in. AAL PINCH Weld Mod ( beat the pinch weld over inside the fender) Painted the pinch weld on bottom of cab Black Hi Lift Knock off
    I have had this Hi-Lift rattling around in the cab of my truck and wanted to
    get it out of the cab
    I bought some 6 in long bolts with 1/2- 13 threads cut the heads off (could not find all thread), drilled a couple of holes in the side rail of the bed and bolted the jack to it. 30 min to do this and it does not rattle.

    2 6 in Bolts 1/2-13
    6 3/4 in nuts 1/2-13
    8 large flat washers
    2 wing nuts 1/2-13
    Center punch
    Drill
    Small drill bit for the pilot hole
    Large Bit for hole 9/16 in.
    $6.10 for bolts, nuts, washers, wing nuts

    I used flat washers on each side of the nuts on the bed rail and a flat washer on each side of the jack, with a wing nut on the out side

    Here is the Bolt hole and on bolt mounted. I painted the hole after I drilled it.

    This is the jack mounted. Note the tennis ball to keep the handle from rattling, it works

    There is a nut and washer behind the wing nut to keep the jack from rubbing on the rail of the bed

    Looks good. But, is it locked on somehow? If not, you might consider it.

    Locking addressed by a cable lock thru the jack and tie down. Thanks for the reminder that there are people like that around. They can still take it, but they will have to do some work, and the jack is only $50

    This looks great! I am about to be shopping for a hi-lift, and was curious how to mount. I had the same idea about using the rail. Should cause the least amount of damage to the bed this way.
