would you want it to be laying down? or up right? near the floor? or up higher? do you have a full top, or like a half top or something.
Anyways, you could possibly get a right angle bracket from like home depot for the base end of the jack, and just a bolt up through the floor with some spacers for the other end. if it will even fit there, i have the 48" one and it wouldn't fit in between the roll bars on the back, over the wheel wells, so i'm not sure how well it will fit on the floor between the roll bars..
Good luck to you, post pictures if you figure something out!
you see here mine is. I'm happy with it there, it leaves free space inside now. And i have the boot for it so it's protected from the weather.
I ordered a neopren booty for the mechanisims so they be safe. if you look closely, the wing nut ont the pass side has a lock through the top of the bolts. so it's safe. when the things get here i'm takin it off and lubbing it and cleaning the rust that has been on it since i bought it last year. EXCITED! haha

i am trying to decide where to mount my 48" high lift jack on my yj? Any suggestions and pictures would be appreciated. I would like to mount it on the outside of the jeep if possible but any suggestions are welcome! Thanks
my cj5 doesnt have a back seat, therfore i mounted mine across the fender wells. Looks pretty sweet.
I anchored mine to the roll bar this week. Muffler clamps: 2 1/2" driver side, 3" passenger. Lines up really well, and cost $6.
I added door trim to the edges of the base and the edges on the clamps, because they do rub my top when I put it up and down.
...and no, no back seat...
I imitated Flipper1's method today. It took longer than planned, but worked out pretty well. Only problem: I need a hood prop now because I can't quite get the hood back all the way to the windshield frame, no matter how I put the jack on.
Still: awesome to get it out of the tub.
Edit: now that I have half inch holes in the hood, I realize that my hood mount setup blocks the windshield sprayers, a must-have in Ohio. Damn. Guess I'm going to hope I get into welding class so I can make a mount to put it on my stupid tire carrier that has rounded tube for the swingout part...
I have a light mount on the hood that is DIY and when I first installed it it blocked the washers but I moved it forward 1/2 inch and it worked fine. Also I can raise the hood all the way to the windshield for full access to the engine.
I've found my hilift and my shovel fit nicely behind the front seats, on the floor, with the rear seat tumble and folded on top of it. I throw a rag over the cupholders and It hasn't moved, didn't rattle. I think I remember a post where someone put a bolt through the floorboard and the hilift would sit on it. Might think that route one of these days if I get bored.
