beaten this one to death

This topic has been written about many times and I've read em all. I've seen many different locations but they are all 48'' jacks. I have a 60'' jack, So I'd like to see where you guys mount your 60'' jacks. I do not have a tire carrier so that option is out. Pictures or suggestions would be great.

Does the 60'' on hood not stick out on both sides. Front bumper is out to cause of the winch and kc lights. Possibly the on top of the rear bumber.

My 60" fit across my tub behind the roll bar. I took the foot off and the jack fit between the roll bar and tailgate, it even fit with the top on. I now have the Dirtworx bumper with tire carrier and jack holder, much nicer.
