you have a valid point my friend.

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.

Happy Fabing!

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 removed my rear bumper and put some long bolts through two of the factory holes on the frame, then put it on with some wing-nuts.

Heres another roll bar mount total cost $7.00 2x mullfler clamps (2.5" size), and 3 wingnuts with washers. I did drill two holes in Hilift, one on base in middle parrel to one already there and one on end of steel lift bar to mount that end. I also added a cable lock color red courtesy of GLOCK here are pics :http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/x...AxNDYuanBn.jpg http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/x...AxNDguanBn.jpg http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/x...AxNDkuanBn.jpg http://i746.photobucket.com/albums/x...AxNTEuanBn.jpg

I looked through this thread a couple of times but I didn't see it, does anyone know where he/she got this kit?



EDIT: Nevermind, just found it, ouch on the price, more than the damn jack, ahh well.

How badly does this setup get in the way when trying to take the top down?

I wonder if there's any trouble folding the soft top down with this setup...

i had mine mounted on the tub, in the same spot, but not with the roll bar. And the soft top kinda folded over it, it was a little bulgy, but not bad, my rear window had some scoffs on it though. lol

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.
