Pickup Hoist Looks Like A Roll Bar
If you've ever wished you had a lift hoist on your pickup but you didn't like the looks of them or the inconvenience of having them in the pickup bed, you'll like the new "Swift Lift" which looks like a roll bar and leaves the pickup bed totally free.
  The Swift Lift was invented in South Africa. Dennis Patterson of Vancouver, British Columbia, distributes it in North America. "We've had tremendous response. Pickup owners have been looking for something like this that would add to the look and value of their trucks, not detract from them," notes Patterson.
  In transport position, the Swift Lift is positioned right behind the cab and looks just like a roll bar. When needed to lift, it simply lifts up and swings out to the side. It's powered by an electro-hydraulic unit that mounts on the side of the pickup bed to provide the lifting power. All you have to do is wire the unit to the truck's 12-volt system.
  The lift is rated at 650 lbs. Sells for $2,495 (Canadian). There's also a 1,000-lb. model. And you can lower the cost by opting for a hand crank instead of the hydraulic-powered unit.
