From what I've read, it's awesome. I just can't justify spending that much on it.

Would enjoy some pictures. I am currently in the process of making my own. Well will be in the process I guess and looking for all sorts of ideas.

I've also fabricated one using muffler clamps, I had to remove it though and relocated it to the rear bumper. It is nice to have the jack inside the cab but it gets in the way of moving things around and folding the top down. Laters,

Materials used: 2- 2 3/8 chainlink tension clamps, 2-3" carriage bolts, 2 nylon locknuts, 4- 1 1/4 fender washers, 2- #8 rubber plugs, 2 locknuts, 2 wingnuts

Had to drill hole in clamp to tighten it up a bit. Used 1/4" bolt. Then tigtened carriage bolt with locknut (pic 1&2). Slid on fender washer and rubber plug (had to drill hole in center of plug to slide over bolt/ pic 3&4).Ended up cutting a small piece of 3/8" fuel line to go in hole on jack where bolts go thru.Slid jack in place put on fender washers,lock washers and wing nuts. As you can see in last pic I ended up taking jack base off and just stored it by my fire ext. Almost forgot, got all the material at Lowes. Hope this helps!
