    That's the same setup I have, it's worked well for 110,000 miles.

    image.jpgAdmittedly not the fanciest setup, but I've been using this for years. Take a treated 2x12, cut it to fit precisely between the notches in your pickups bed, drill out a couple of holes to mount the jack with some locknuts, fender washers, and wing nuts, and you're done. I used the thick rubber coil spring "helpers" as isolators (I drilled holes in them also). On my rig, i got lucky and the notches in the bed are right behind where the container sits for the roll-up bedcover. When I close the bedcover, the jack is secure and out of the weather.image.jpgimage.jpg

    used HL - 4X4 mounts...

    bolted thru the inner bed wall
    (^ reaching up between the inner and outer sheet metal to install nuts/fender washers... was a pita)

    This is a 60" so it's heavy...
    the weight is supported by resting on the fender well.

    It is a little hassle to remove for use...
    but I hope to not use it very often

    Just on special occasions

    Default Old thread - I know

    Here is a super cheap, yet very secure mounting option not listed here.

    I used pipe U-bolts 1.25" and some cut up exercise mat to mount to my Yakima bars. Works fantastic. Total cost was like $2.50. I need it on the outside of the vehicle, and it's only on the truck for trips. Very happy with it.

    Not in practice. It's less than two minutes to remove. 1/4 drive ratchet and socket are in my center console.

    I keep the jack mechanism in its neoprene boot inside the tool box, out of the weather.
