    So, what have you guys been hiding where the jack used to be. Im asuming of course that a lot of you with lifted truck got rid of the factory jack and mount.

    Theres always the easy stuff, tow ropes, chains, gloves. But anyone come up with a really great idea they cant keep to themselves. Sorta like the amp idea on the other side?

    Uh-how about the Toyota bottle jack? It's still super useful and way better than a highlift for swapping a tire on the trail. If you have 35s-just throw in a short piece of 2X6 to put under the jack. If you don't want your bottle jack, send it to me-I'll gladly pay shipping.

    I agree with Cruiserdrew. My Toyota bottle jack is still in there. It really doesn't take up that much room.

    The bottle jack is very useful. I watched Robbie use one this year to install a leading rod on the trail. He did it faster than I did one on a damn lift..:flipoff2:

    Ditto, never thought of getting rid of it, just to darn handy.
