Does anyone know of an inexpensive way to mount a highlift on a 1st gen Tacoma? I think it will have to be in the bed because of It's length. (60")

Any cheapo solutions will be appreciated.

I have a mount that fits in your hitch receiver. $35 shipped if you are interested.

I imagine a trip to the hardware store for two bolts, some washers, handful of nuts for spacers and two wingnuts would make a pretty cheap hilift mount on one of the side rails in the bed....

#keanan, thanks for the offer but I'm thinking more like 5 bucks cheap;)
#Tacomadave. You are on to something with that.

A guy on TTORA fabbed these up a long while back. They are just a piece of angle bracket with a notch cut out of the top and a flat plate welded to the bottom. With a die grinder and access to a welder you could make something like this in an hour or so for cheap. I have had my Hilift mounted this way for over five years and it's rock solid.
