    So I have been looking for a way to mount my hi lift, shovel, and a axe in my bed. One of the ideas I thought of was mounting a thule roof rack bar set across the bed and putting a snowboard rack on it. That way I could lock them up and also use it for its intended purpose. My question is has anyone done this before? Is the jack too thick to fit in the rack?

    Thanks in advance

    I have a Thule ski/board carrier and the "max capacity" for that thing is 2" and thats pushin it.. I'd think the Hi-lift is too think but idk, don't have one of those

    I think the hi lift is too heavy. there is not enough tension in the thule ski rack to hold it in place in the event of a sudden stop or accident. The jack would not stay put. I thought of trying that too since I have Thule load bars and ski rack. Good idea but not a good solution.

    Mine is pretty simple. I got two exhaust clamps, and used wingnuts instead of the regular nuts. It would be easy to run a small cable with a padlock if you wanted it locked. The exhaust clamps secure it to the Thule bars.
