    doesn't look like the base of the jack clears the bumper. Tailgate doesn't even work probably.

    Wow.

    Am i the only one that thinks that is pretty sweet?

    Obviously, not something for a trail truck, but for a show truck...look at all the work that went into that. And a hell of an idea in terms of just being different.....

    Is that the long/tall Hi-Lift?? Looks like it would be difficult to get out, like you just let it fall out. Also it doesnt look like it could get a tire off the ground on that truck. Mines in the bed by the cad on drivers side standing up. I just dont go through drive thru's or in parking garages with it.

    For now I have a stock front bumper, drilled holes in the bumper and mounted it to the front, used pistol locks to secure it through the holes to keep someone from stealing it. . Couldnt stand the rattling when it was mounted in the truck.

    Passenger side roll-bar brace tube, using one of the ropes I carry to wrap it to the tube.

    Takes a minute or two to get it out, but I rarely need it and usually need the rope also when I do.

    Nothing but red x's Gabe.

    The oribinal post looks ok, but would not be functional at all IMO on a blazer/burb b/c of the rear window. Pluss it looks like you would spend a ton of time getting that right when most people just mount them to the floor/bumper/rack which takes about 10 minutes.
