Default New Sliders with Hi-Lift points
I'm fixing to start a project on custom Sliders. They will have Hi-lift lifting points, 4 mounting locations welded to the frame, flat top with flare holes, and sprayed on bed liner.

They will probably be very similar to this


My question is would any of you be comfortable using an Hi-Lift on a Slider specially designed for it? I've heard a lot of negative discussion on them. Don't want to have the jack slip causing mayhem, possibly damaging my truck.

Thanks. Kinda what I was thinking. However, after reading negative posts regarding them it was making me second guess it.

No problem for me whatsoever. Got some made for that purpose actually myself: Sliders and Skid Plates, oh my! (WARNING: Pic Heavy!)

Consider making an adapter for your hi lift as well. A piece of 90deg angle iron large enough to cradle the tube... see what I'm sayin?

I've actually looked at your thread many times. It was my original inspiration for my soon to be sliders. What size Hi-Lift are you using? I imagine due to our suspension travel it would require one of the longer models.

Yep I've got the Hi-Lift X-TREME 60". Have you seen how I mounted it? Works better than I could have hoped: HiLift Jack Mounted in the Bed - Tons 'o Pics!

The mounting of the jack looks awesome. Have you used it much?

If anyone had pictures of the Hi-Lift in use, I'd greatly appreciate it.

I'm thinking when changing a tire, if I chain the axle up, the suspensions travel would be dramatically reduced. Read a WSI post somewhere regarding it. The chains used to turn the lift into a winch would probably work for this. I like the idea of having a backup winching device. Just seeing the Hi-Lift in action would make me feel better about my sliders design. I'm going with 4 legs, which may be unnecessary weight if I'm not lifting from them. Also, specifically leaving open areas in the flat top, so the Hi-Lift doesn't contact it. Once these are built I plan on using the lift until I'm comfortable enough to use it when it counts. Kinda edgy about messing something up though. That's why I was asking for in action photos.
