I was looking for another one I remember. The guy had a green zj with a red hi-lift. It looks just like self-tapping double-threaded bolts if that makes any sense. it was just two threaded bolds coming out of the bumper that accepted wing nuts

I like the way the first one is done. I'm going to go of that one. I don't like my front bumper anyways

Personally I think it's a terrible idea if you hit anything your going to destroy the jack

Looks like a good place to catch mud and dirt as well as bounce off rocks. Hi-Lifts are very pron to getting dirty and hanging up. Mount it to the roof rack cross rails.

Unless you have rock sliders or aftermarket steel bumpers, a Hi-Lift is useless. Even then, it's pretty useless.
