    Will a 60" HiLift fit between a UWS low pro and the side of the bed? Im looking at getting the toolbox for some secure storage but want to make sure the hilift will still fit. My HiLift is mounted directly to the bedside, on brackets about 2" out. maybe a total of 3" away from the side.

    If it will fit, great, if not Ill have to look at some other options. here is a crude drawing to clarify


    Edit: i searched the crap out of this but couldnt come up with any pics of this combo

    I would assume that depends on your bed length. I've been researching Hi Lift installation with an eye to purchasing one for my Double Cab Short Bed. Leaning towards 60" but worried about mounting it even without a toolbox.

    If you have a DC SB, then probably not going to fit a toolbox and a 60" Hi Lift the way your diagram shows. From pics on this website, that 5.5 foot bed looks to be a snug fit for a 60" unit alone unless the base plate is removed. If your bed is a longer bed, then take a tape measure to it.

    You can save some room by taking off the base plate and top clamping attachment. Another option may be to bolt it to the toolbox going across the width of the bed. IIRC, there are one or two folks here that have managed to cram a 60" jack along the width, but the ends rub on your bed. I'd rather not have a metal jack abrading my composite bed with every bump & bounce, but YMMV.
