Jackguard

Anyone using one of <a target="_blank" href=http://www.jackguard.com>these</a>? It looks like ORC did a product review, but I could only find pics of it mounted on a Heep bumper. I was wondering if anyone had one installed in a truck bed and how they like it?

Re: Jackguard

I just keep my HiLift in my trucks toolbox. Looks like it may come in handy for other vehicles that don't have much storage space though. Hilift makes a bag as well, and you can always mount the jack without anything as long as you take the time to treat it to a oil bath every once in a while. It's a little messy to handle when you need it, but that's no big deal to me.

Re: Jackguard

Yeah, that'd be great if I had a toolbox[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]. I just took a look at the Hi-Lift bags and they look pretty good, except I think the jack I have is a 60" and with the bag, it leaves about 5" exposed. No biggie I guess, but the thing I like best about the jackguard is that there is room for gloves and stuff, too.

Re: Jackguard

From the looks of it you have to pull it out the end. This is kind of useless to me, I want something that mounts in the front of the bed. I suppose it's fine for someone with a trail-only rig that they don't have to worry about someone permanently borrowing it.

Re: Jackguard

Well, I know ORC did a review on it on either shawns rig or project rock ready I think, but when they reformatted everything that article seems to have disappeared along with the old style main page[img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img].
