How did you mount your gas can? Got any close ups?

I mounted mine on the tub behind the seats. Keeps it clean and safe. Nothing worse than having to use it only to have to spend a half hour cleaning mud and crap out of it just so it will work.

Hi-Lift Inside Mount - Cheap, Easy, Solid

Use a 1/2 thread tap to thread the inside of the hole on the back of the rear roll bars (opposite the seatbelt). Purchase two heavy duty u-bolt plates - not the u-bolts, just the plates (I found mine at a farm supply store, they are about 3 1/2" long with two 1/2" holes - I think they are for a tractor suspension). Bend these plates to about a 45-degree angle (I used a vise and pair of vice grips to bend the plates). Use 1/2 bolts, washers and lock washers to mount the plates to the roll bars. Mount the right one so the plate is perpendicular to the rear of the Jeep (the base plate of the jack will attach here). Mount the left one so it is parallel to the rear of the Jeep (the top of the jack runner will attach here). Use 1/2 bolts, washers and wing nuts to secure the jack to these mounts. Mine is rock solid and safely out of the way. I used all grade-8 hardware (overkill). You may need to experiment with the bends and washers to get everything to line up but mine worked perfectly on the first try.
Here are some photos. I should clarify that I bent the plates 45-degrees from flat. The final angle is about 135-degrees (doesn't have to be perfect). Be sure to find the thickest, strongest plate for a solid mount.

My Hi-Lift Extreme gets mounted to my hood with fire extingushers brackets/bolts/wing nuts by using the torques head bolts on the hood hinges...Cost $0.00. It only gets mounted there for trail rides. Surely some POS would steel it in the city! Someone else stated how important it is to keep it and all the working parts lubed...how true!!

2- 2 1/2 (i think) exhaust hangers (the u-bolts) and 4 wing nuts. put the jack across the back window with the base on either side facing down. there are 2 holes in the base that line up perfectly with the u-bolts. then put the other u-bolt facing towards the back of the jeep and slip it through the holes in the tall jack part. i lock mine on with a short piece of chain and a big padlock. it doesn't make any noise and doesnt get in the way of the backseat, rear window or anything. best mod i have done to my jeep so far

ps... will post pics if requested.

edit: just do it like TJ311

How about mounting the jack vertically on the stock rear bumper of the TJ?

The problem would be attaching the upper part (the base would be bolted to the top side of the bumper).

Any clue?

I'VE thought about this but i haven't figured out a way to keep the top secure. my bumper isn'y factory , but the top is flat.

4" muffler clamps, 2 at the base, 1 at the top of the jack. Cut each u-bolt so that one bolt is longer than the other. Mount at the back on the rollbar with the longer of the bolts through the holes in the jack. Use wing nuts to tighten.

Photobucket is screwed right now but I'll post pics when able.

Nice idea, but it wouldn't work with your top on!!!

i have mine mounted on the hood. now granted you can not open it all the way to the window but it opens pretty far. .. it is one of the hood mounts from quadratec. now i know you all are like? well emergency this and emergency that.... but to be honest you do not need to open the hood all the way back to the windsheild. you have plenty of room to move a fire extinguisher around to hit any crazy fires... unless ofcourse you are carrying some giant one around. a 3lb extinguisher can fit under the hood without more then a foot of room. i like some of the other mounts, but i still favor the hood mount. its out of the way and i'm more safe with it out there then hanging behind my head incase of some horrible wreck.

I LIKE BEING CALLED A NOOBIE BECAUSE IT SOUNDS LIKE BOOBIE AND THAT MAKES ME GIGGLE!

Warn Tire Carrier

For all you guys with the Warn Rear Bumper and Tire Carrier, you know that Warn does not offer a Jack Mount.

Well check the slick mount offered by Durango4x4.com for the Warn setup.

They not only have mounts for Jacks but Jerry Cans and even a gear basket.

All are designed to bolt on to the Warn setup without modification.
