Just tell them it's the pulley and crank on the front of every boat trailer ever made.
This is the one you want. It's $24.99, and the crank is on the front, it's geared, and 2000 lb capacity..... Make sure you bolt it to a stud with some good lag bolts...

something like this http://www.winchdepot.com/PDT37053.aspx
I thought about doing that as well. Problem is, there are no 12 volt outlets in my garage. I know you could pop the hood on the Jeep and hook it up, but seem's like a hassle. Besides, as often as you would use it, I would stay with a cheap mechanical one. At least here on the left coast, you would only use it twice a year.
However, Harbor frieght has some 120 volt ones for pretty cheap too. Used for lifting stuff, engine hoists, etc....
Here's one for $114.99 in 120 volt, 1500 lb......

Sound's like I own stock in Harbor Frieght I know. I spend a lot of time there picking up stuff and I'm on their cupon mailing list, so I see a lot of their stuff.

Sorry admins for taking the thread off topic, kinda'.


Betcha' wish your girlfriend was as dirty as my Jeep!

Hang on! This is gunna' be a thrill ride of geriatric proportion!

I made a jack mount on the spare tire carrier today out of some scrap metal at the shop.

Used a 1/4 inch plate, 2 inch square tube and a 2 inch wide 1/4 inch strap.
I still need to add a lock to it. I have an idea, will work on that tomorrow.



Looks better painted.

I started to paint the jack, but the only paint I had on hand was white and some fuschia color. I will get some paint this weekend and get it done.


What is the correct color for a jack?

Great job. Do you notice any difference in the fit of the gate with the extra weight? High-lifts are pretty heavy.
PS: Paint the jack any color you want that would compliment your ride.

It did add a bit of sag that you notice when opening the tail gate. The tire sits on the rear bumper when it is closed so I do not think it will be that bad on the road. This was just a temp fix until I can get a bumper and rack figured out for it.

I want to make a swingout tire carrier and rack. Just not sure what style I want yet.

I think I will go with black and/or grey for the jack.

Removed the back seat and cut 3/4 in. plywood to fit across the fender wells, side to side. Fits between back of the front seats and the roll bar mounts. Covered in black velour (don't ask why my wife had an extra roll of the stuff lying around) and stapled it up tight. Makes a great shelf for the back.

Close up the tailgate, add the tonneau cover and there are two sections separated and if someone does cut open or tears off the toneau, it looks like there's fixed shlf there protecting whatever gets put under it...

Yj- when the speed limit is no longer a restriction, but rather a challenge ready to be conquered every time.
