    I installed a High Lift Jack Mount (4XRAC) on my tailgate. It takes up minimal room, its easy to get to and best of all nobody can steal it. It was a real PITA to put the nuts on the end of the bolts because theres not a lot of room on the inside of the tailgate:bang: but that was the hardest part. Took about 1h45m because im :doh:....

    No offense, but didn't you just ruin your ability to use the tailgate? Cant sit, hard to load anything heaving in......Just my opinion I guess.
    Good job though..:cheers:

    Yeah that would be a weird place for me. I do a lot of snowboarding and I would hate to lose my bench.
