Hi lift jack question

Hi all I use to jeep a lot but have recently purchased a 2014 Tacoma with the shorter bed and has a 4 in lift was wondering which size hi lift I should purchase? And also if anyone has any cool mounting spots or pictures I'm thinking in the bed above the wheel well on the side, thanks

I prefer using the taller 60"
because as tires get taller... I don't need buy another.
Plus off road on uneven terrain... more lift can be helpful.

I use my bumpers and sliders as mounting points.
I also utilize a cradle attachment for mounting to the tubing.





Ignore the bungie cords...
they're just there so the base plate doesn't rattle.






cradle attachment looks like this...



I used the 4X4 RAC Hi-Lift mounts to secure mine...
drilled thru and attached to the inner bed wall. *
While the weight of the Hi-Lift rests on the fender.

Difficult to reach up inbetween the inner and outer fender
to secure the bolts/nuts... But is doable with smaller hands.

* But be careful drilling thru' the inner wall...
'cause if the drill bit it too long and not limited...
it will hit the outer fender skin and put a dent in that.

The adapter and beefy rock rails make it so easy. You never ever fill safe on a jack. We have lifted all four wheels off the ground and stacked up rocks under tires to clear stuff using your set up.

Nothing safe about using a Hi-Lift
No matter how it's utilized or what adapter.

It's not even safe to use on flat ground...





Tho' sometimes it's the only way to save yerself.

But do it wrong... and it could kill you quick

Or just end up denting the crap outta yer sheetmetal if yer lucky !? Lol

Great tool to have... but never become comfortable with your trust in it.

Failure to heed the warnings can be detrimental to ones well being, life and limbs.

That said... I wouldn't travel off road without one.

Looking at the pictures even the floor jack is unsafe to use like that.
