EXCITED! haha
maybe its a wives tale or not, but on the ranch growing up we were always instructed when lubing a high lift to do so under a load, so jack up ur bumper while ur lubing the heck out of it. just spraying it on in a static condition does not fully work the moving pins, springs, etc.

i have the neoprene boot and it seems to be holding up well to the elements.

good luck

Look it's a 4.6!

when i put the boot on i lubbed it with my dad pushing down on the foot part while i lubbed and raised/lowered the mechanism.

Thanks for your advice! next time i won't use my father. lmao

Here's my latest creation, put it on the Jeep when I want to carry the Jack, take it off when I don't...All it took was a recovery point from Harbor Freight (I guess you could use a hitch extension, or a hitch, or a piece of 2" square tube), a 24" piece of angle, and some 3/8" hardware. put it together for under $20!

Check out the Quick Fist rubber clamps here. These guys make high quality, easy to mount / use clamps for everything including hi-lifts, shovels, etc. I've got some mounted on my tire carrier for a shovel.

The slight angle of the bolts relative to the long axis of the tube keeps one end of the jack base pressed against the mount and rattle free.
Like it and I'm going to steal that idea.Thank you sir.

Wow, I'm a member. Thats not the word I'm normally called.

I saw the hood mount by Warrior for $79.99... I thought that was way too much for welded metal scraps.

Amazon.com: Hood Mount Kit For Hi-Lift Jack Warrior 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ & Unlimited TJl # 1540: Automotive

So, I made mine out of solid aluminum. There are pictures at the link below...

If anyone is interested, we can make a pair for you for $100.00. They are sent to you as the raw aluminum, but with a little elbow grease they shine up really nice. It only takes about a week to make them and shipping will just be the postal "Flat rate" .. handling is included

so the Warrior ones are expensive @ $80, but then you want to sell your for $100??? i think the welded metal scrap ones work just as good....

The issue is, that if I am spending that kind of money I would rather spend a little more and get a heavy duty solid aluminum piece. I am not making money on these. This is made here in the US at a local tool and dye shop here in Michigan. I told him I would let people know about these. These custom pieces are way better than anything I could fabricate or buy. Just thought I would share... if you do not see how nice they are, then I am sorry.

i see they are nice, buy way too expensive for what they are... just another high lift holder...

i made this for free (had the materials laying around), and it has been holding for almost 2 years now... plus it also holds my shovel, and you could put lights on it also...
