Hi lift storage

Post by Brownfaux on Tue Oct 29, 2013 1:20 am

Didn't like the idea of having my hi lift outside the car, nor the idea of loading that beeotch every time I went wheeling. So I welded this frame out of 1x1 square tubing. It mounts to the floor using some stock tie down locations. I removed the d rings and put my own bolts in. Soo the compressor will be off the floor and hanging from the left side of the frame. This is version 1.0, I always build crap twice cause I figure out what I like and what works. When I rebuild it will be just a hair shorter and a little further from the seats, plus I'll make a part of the frame run the length of the floor between the mounts. Maybe take out the plastic insert that has the angle to it. Works great though!

Comments, criticism, or thoughts welcome.

Yes, the jack flying loose in a rollover is a concern, but it's mounted in there pretty good.

I like it.  I fold my rear seats down fairly frequently, but if you don't that should work great.  Any thought of making the next version wrap completely around the cargo area?

The seats can still fold down so you could put some stuff under it. Also, the passenger side of the frame can unbolt really quick and be removed. I don't think I'll have it go around the trunk, I wanted to make this to get stuff off the floor at a minimum loss of cargo space.
