Screw Jack Mounted in the Fuel Can Holder

Post by RC20 » Mon Oct 28, 2019 10:00 pm

I stole the Screw Jack from the pickup. Nice simple tech. TyWrapped to the fuel holder as its not used or going to be much if any.

I can put the Hydraulic bottle Jack in the Pickup box but it only runs around town these days.

How about a piece of something for a bottom in the holder? Saddlebag insert? Waterproof bag?

Oooo if you made a bag or box that fit in there you could put other tools and such in it. What about a soft bag with more ridged sides and bottom (like plastic sewn inside).

Keeping it simple and no need to seal.

I had adequate room for the camping gear, this is just a bit big and clunky so thought it would do fine there.

Its open at the bottom so any moisture drains out (have to see about anything that turns into condensation)

I carry this Home Depot scissors jack. Held to the back of the luggage rack with 2 large hose clamps.

RC, might just be my eyes or the photo but how tall is that jack? Looks from here pretty tall to fit/use under a Ural frame?

I checked it (0f course!) grin - it fits under cT frame fine so would do a GU etc even better.

Actually its pretty cool with the yellow wheel that lets you move to close before the driver inserted (I am using a hex shank screwdriver and a crescent wrench for now, not sure I want to mess with the original driver form the truck) -

I pondered a scissors as well, but the darned things are so long and the rack is well taken up. I prefer to keep as much internal storage as I can free.

So its an idea and the fun of this is we each have a different take, what works, what might do different. So its not a "my way and have to" but here is an option and it may wind up something else as well.

Will it fit under the sidecar seat?

What's the purpose of the hook-and-loop strip on the center divider of the seat tray?

There's a matching bit hook-and-loop on the seat cushion, and a rubber pin that fits in the hole ahead of it that hold the seat cushion in place.

That's what I figured (re: hook & loop). I've not had any problems relying on just the factory pin configuration to retain the seat cushion.

Thats the way it came, never gave it any thought until you asked. I suppose they figured it wasn't needed, and phased it out?

Not 100% but I don't think so. This is a screw jack off a 1 ton truck.

That said I would not anyway, its where I keep wrenches and high value or I don't want to loose tools (too much stuff there now)

I could put in the hack as well, I might do that for weight, but this is free space that nothing else goes in. Will see long term.

All I can say, having learned the hard way, keeping ones jack clean and dry can save headaches if one gets a flat in challenging conditions.

Well THAT didn't look like a lot of fun. At least at the time. NOW it makes for a good story!
