    Where might one mount a Highlift jack on one's Tacoma that is not an offroad monster? Also, can you use the nerf bars/step rails to lift the truck for a tire change? Assuming you would lift at the anchor point fore or aft.

    Yeah, I was looking at the front and there is no way to lift from there with one, so was hoping the stock step rails would work.

    Other than a Highlift or the stock jack, what does everyone use for street use?

    It is stock, but because stock jacks suck and take forever to get out etc. I had a Suburban before my Tacoma and the highlift was great for tire issues, so I was hoping for the same here.
