Tell me about your high lift jack

how did you mount your high lift jack on your first gen? did you put it on an aftermarket bumper? which brand jack did you buy? I'd love to know.
Thanks for the info.

That's not nice even though I did get a good chuckle out of it.

To the OP when I need my high lift stowed in my truck I do the same as justinfonder does.

Mine sits in the shop 99% of the time .. but in the bed like these 2 if I need it. I've seen them bolted to bed rails, tailgates, hoods and front bumpers.

I quite like this guy's setup
hopefully he doesn't mind me posting his picture :P

I have my Hi-Lift brand Hi-Lift jack stored in the extra cab portion of my truck. It keeps it out of all the crap that can cause the springs and pins to stick when you store it outside.

I have had and Used 1 for Year's and can give you some sad stories of Injuries that have Happened from Not using the Jack the right way . The Major thing you have to remember is Keep your Hand's and Arm's away from the handle .It Can be Deadly.and make sure the Vehicle is Blocked at the wheel's .

I don't carry a hi-lift with me but if I did, then I'd throw it in the bed or more securely I'd throw in in my tool box that's in the bed.

Hi Lift makes brackets that mount to the inside of the truck bed. Out of the way and a clean area. Also you will need something to lubricate the mechanisim. This is very important. If everything moves easily the jack will perform correctly. I use WD-40. There is a reason they refer to this jack as the Widow Maker!
