    Hello All,

    I have these http://www.amazon.com/Hi-Lift-4X400-4XRAC-Mounting-System/dp/B000CMHNY2 and a 48" high lift jack extreme. I plan on using the T Nuts and mounting it length wise to the bed rail track. My question is; the lower leg resting against the side of the bed causing a wear or banging when going over a bump? I do not want them to free float against the bed even with a spacer to set the jack so it's vertically straight as that would cause wear also. I have searched all the threads and looked at a lot of mount styles and systems. Several appeared to just have the lower part of my style mount resting on the side; some appeared to have been bolted down. With those who have the lower leg just resting on the side how much wear have you seen from this? If you have bolted yours down how hard was it to get to the area just below the rail? I am going to guess pull the inner fender liner and or the storage box any info would be appreciated.

    Doing this same thing right now. I'm using rubber test tube stoppers on bottoms, secured with 1" lag bolts. Where'd you get TBolts, I made my own?

    Glue a piece of rubber to the bed surface where the lower leg rests?

    Hey,

    Cryptik yeah that is an Idea might do that but would add a cross brace back up to the track at an angle and the T nuts I ordered through fastenal you can find the post here but this is the info to order the ones that fit. SKU 31639563/8"-16 x 9/16" Black Oxide 1018 Steel Tap Thru T-Nut
    There are others maybe even stainless steel but I have these and tested the fit. Here is the post from here http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-tacomas/114001-bed-rails-attachments.html

    And here you can barely see the tube...

    How it looks with my HiLift

    I actually use the Bungee stripes for the vibrations on the HiLift... the bed is ok, no wear and there are no noises from the mounts bumping...

    ATO all the way! Not sure how strong the composite bed would be holding the weight of the jack....it's heavy!

    What Chepo did was smart!

    Buy some fuel/emissions hose and cut a slit in it and wrap around the bottom of the lower leg of the mount
