In all honesty, high lift hood/front bumper mounts are dumb. If you mount your high lift to the bumper your going to hit a rock and break it. If you mount it on your hood and you crash, well i don't think the hood mounts strong enough to stop a high lift from flying through the windshield. I think the best way to mount it is with a tire carrier in the rear, but there are probably some other sufficient ways to do it.

I appreciate your feed back but right now I wont be wheeling too much with a disconnected front drive shaft the d30 front is toast, so until I get the money to fix that I'm just getting lil add ons to make it look good. Thats why im not worried about hitting a rock and why its on there right now. Never thought about the hilift on the hood causing such an injury but honestly idc lol I like the looks of it.

Also what about locks for these things because I'm sure around where I live it would get snatched if its just a bolt holding it.

If I'm not mistaken this one, http://www.toughstuffproducts.com/jeep/hood_rack.html, was co-designed by a prominent member here on JF. And as to safety I believe he has said they have never had a reported issue with thousands of them sold. Personally,there is no deal good enough that would cause me to pay money for a hi lift, unless I suppose I was planning on flipping it and making some money to put towards good mods.

Instead of ruining or losing your jack why not just leave it at home???

If you want to mount it outside in the elements and waste your money I have seen mounts for the hood?
At least this will keep it from being a bumper. Might end up I your face in a head collision, might not.

You could also get some cool lights to light up your hood real pretty.

so for an all cast hi lift never used $40 bucks you wouldn't take it? lol

I think ima just rig it from home depot or lowes trying to figure out the hi lift on the hood might end up cheaper
