I'm going to order a locking gas strut and give it a shot in the stock location.

Okay, here's my solution for my truck. Using all extra parts and tools, I used a 3/8" flexible socket joint and ratchet extention, welded those to a plate, and added a washer at the end. The kickstand attaches to the drawer in my bed, and then rotates up and locks into a hole in the door frame. You can't tell in the pics, but there is enough of the socket extension left passed the washer to fit into a pocket in the door and not fall out.

I may still add a reinforcement plate to the door frame.
