you could (in a xj) cut the storage under back seat to fit it , maybe , hood looks cool though

It may have been mentioned in a previous comment on this thread...but i chose to mount mine on the hood with the kit that puts them on the hood hinges. It keeps it out of the way and still easy to grab. Theres a couple issues, one: will not allow hood to open to the point where you can insert the hood "stick" to prop it open. two: it interfers with the windshield washer fluid nozzle...lame that it causes issues, but a plus that it doesnt interfere with getting into the back.

mines the classic hood mount, very glad I have the high lift, has saved me many times.

I didnt pay 40$ for mounts either. Cost 10$ for parts from tractor supply.
2 spark plug sockets
2 6" bolts
2 nutes
2 washers
2 wing nuts
and a lock so it doesn't walk away, keepin the honest people honest!

Bolts went through the front bolts holes in the hinges.

I had to leave it in a parking lot on top of a lamp post base because it was too big too fit on my Jeep.

Winch rewind broke? Seems like a good place to get hung up. Just asking. That's a nice looking rubi though

I had just used it to get off a rock I high centered on and wound it up to get out of the way of other people. I would it back up right after that pic but I thought it looks cool. and thanks! I dig it although is a good bit more scratched up now.

nice mount to keep a good COG, but seems that will negatively affect your departure angle and it may soon be ripped out or bent up. And perhaps dirt/pebbles and moisture from rear tire spraying up into the jack climbing mechanism any also affect its functionality when really needed. (Side note: in 30+ years of wheeling rarely if ever do externally mounted jacks function properly when needed-- someone has to hunt up some WD40, etc and that defeats the concept of having a jack at the ready.) Regular lube and maintenance + work out under load helps keep them in shape.

So i like the styling of the low rear mount, and this is just one dude's perspective, you may not be happy in the long run for the above reasons.
