    Well done. I need to make some of these. Those damn softopper arms are crimping my style.

    I used 1/2" carriage bolts because I discovered the square portion fits nicely in the hi lift holes, so once I tighten up the wing nut, the square portion holds the hi lift nice and snug. I just ground the circle part into a square and welded it onto the face of it. It worked pretty well. The wing nuts I got from mcmaster carr and also work perfectly with the hi lift.

    I think so, maybe 1.5". And used these in the rail. Somehow this was my first time buying the machined nuts like that. I've always worked around them because I'm cheap, but damn they are nice.

    Your honor went out the door long ago with your virginity under the school bleachers with little Becky Schumaker.

    Yes.
    relentless hilift brackets supposedly clear the softopper hinge...

    Unless there's a softopper specific one I didn't click on I'm not sure how that could be true. I like Randy's design because I think I could store rod holders in them as well. Gotta use up every square inch in an SB.

    I know, I just like messing with Matt. It keeps his mind sharp. He gets complacent if not.

    One perk of mine is I can totally remove the ST without removing the jack. Something to think about as well.

    Let the bedliner dry overnight and got them mounted. Usually on a small project like this, there’s something I want to change. Not on these, I’m pretty fuckin stoked with how they came out.

    I did add some electrical tape on the bottom leg to prevent chafing of the bed.
