Sounds appealing. Do you take the top OFF or just fold it back? Do you have a behind-the-seat storage bin? These are all aspects of my jeep that have priority over keeping the jack inside. Does it rattle at all?

Thats very true, thats when it would be a pain in the butt having it there. I just cant justify putting it inside on the back roll bar. I could see people sitting in the back hitting there heads on it. Thanks for the pic though

if you look closely you can see where mine is mounted on the front bumper, in that recovery my winch cable was stuck so i had to use the hi lift which i was able to get to.

Top down or top removed. I've done both with no ill effects. No behind the seat storage bin. But that would affect the soft top either way I'd think (at least partially). I think the big issue with that is handling the vertical corners of the top itself, but I can either run them down into the tub or horizontally along the 'side' of the tub and still keep everything above where a behind-the-seat bin would be since the soft top frame is wider than the lower area between the rear wheel wells.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

I have the back seat fold down latch permantly (read broken ) set to fold.
I just push the seat forward a bit and open the trunk

I've got mine mounted on the hood with the kit from Quadratec. I had it on the hood under 30 minutes.

As for the McMaster site.

I got the search wrong. Try "two piece clamp on shaft collar" as the search string. You should see the 2 piece version as one of the choices on the right window pane. IIRC cage tube diameter is either 2 1/4 or 2.5". Somebody here can confirm I'm sure. Then the outer diameter is 1" extra (1/2" thick clamp x 2 'sides')

The key is to then drill tap it and fit a bolt in there. You can either shave the head off or thread the open end into the clamp once attached. You'll need some way to space it to make it secure and tight (hence the approach used in my setup).

I got this URL but not certain it will return what you want:
http://www.mcmaster.com/#shaft-clamps/=y07ym
I just went to that site and the cheapest ones are like 30 bucks! that's almost as much as the stinkin jack! Please tell me it's a 50 count or something?

80 dollars? that's rediculous. My offbrand jack cost 50. I'll be going with a homemade one when the time comes to mount it inside...

My only suggestion is to keep it out of the weather. They rust pretty easily and unless you carry WD40, keep it in the interior. I have mine behind my rear seat, but I'm working on a new/better location.
