Just fine, it sits more towards the rear of the Jeep.

Thanks, they are (3) 2.25", 2 piece clamp on shaft collars from McMaster-Carr. I had a member on Wrangler Forum make them for me. He pressed in the bolts, ect and shipped them to me. Real nice guy. Looks very clean.

I like this type of setup.. My only concern is that I have two young kids that ride in the back, it looks as though the jack is right at about head level.. Our jeep is also a daily driver and my concern would be getting rear-ended "again" and rear passengers could really get hurt if their heads hit the jack.. Taller people might be ok, but for short people or kids the jack seems to be at head level.. Any thoughts?

I did the hood mount for my 48"er. I am an overengineerer and sought out some gasket material to eliminate any rattle. At home depot i found a material that i believe is used to line the floor for shower installs. Its only about a mil thick and a rubbery material. Its sold in one foot x five foot strips at about $5. I cut it up to form a gasket betweent the hi lift mount and the hood hinge(prevent rattle and paint damage) then i cut a circular one with a hole in the center to drop over the top wing nut threads that forms a gasket between the hi lift and the mount. and finally put some in the corners of the ushaped plate that wraps over the top of the hi lift before finally being tightened down with the wingnut. A little crazy, but i didnt want rattle and i forsee the leftover gasket material coming in handy over the years. Sorry no pics- new member and not enough posts

Very nice! Well made! How much $$$ for a set?? Does your windshield squirter still hit the window? I have heard thet the single squirters are farther out on the hood and will be blocked by the jack.
