What's the big deal with mounting it outside? Besides dirt and stuff which can be washed off and cleaned is there really anything I'm missing? My next big purchase is going to be jeeperman rear bumper which comes with high lift mounting. Which is where I wanted to put mine!
Do you leave any of your other tools outside?

Anywhere but the hood!!! I'm far from a safety N***, but it's one thing I cannot understand when it comes to offroading mods. It's a recipe for some facial plastic surgery, that is if you survive. Even things set on the dash in a hard frontal impact can do some serious damage.
My underlying principle is that, as the driver, you make the choice to put the vehicle in precarious situations. You can take the responsibility for the amount of risk you put yourself in behind the wheel, but it's wrong to put a passenger in the line of fire.
I won't ride in a Jeep with the Hi-lift on the hood, not even to run to the grocery.
If you must have it, the front or rear bumper is the way to go
So is your fear that in a front end collision your passengers face will go through the windshield and smash down on the jack?
