Obviously it is no problem with soft top etc. I hope that helps.

Hmm... it looks like you got yours to mount on the top of the roll bar and I like that position much better than mine (under the roll bar). Would you mind either posting pics of your mount points for both sides of the HiLift for comparison or at least PM them to me? Thanks...

I'm still not 100% content with the mounting. I'm kinda concerned with it becoming a projectile during a wreck/roll over. Especially now with kid in the back. I did have to drill holes in the base and one to line up with the roll bar on the other side.

I had mine mounted to the front of the stock bumper on my LJ, and I looked at it as "extra bumper". However, now that my LJ is my DD, I took it off and will be installing it in my CJ6, probably lenghtwise in the bed. I use mine a lot on the farm, mostly for jacking up tractors and especially for pulling fence posts. It works great for popping metal fence posts out of the ground with a short length of chain.

Do you have any close-up pictures of how you mounted the hi-lift?

looks like the standard hi lift stand-off mounting kit.

Look it's a 4.6!

I run a full size rear storage box so mounting it on the back roll bar is a no go. I put it right in front of the box with some homemade brackets. Stays clean and out of sight.

Sort of reviving an old thread, but...

I mounted mine on the side of the stock tire carrier on the tailgate. It is high enough to clear the bumperettes and my future rear bumper that I'm building this summer.

The first picture is where the bolts that the Hi-lift sits on are, the second is the Hi-lift mounted, and third is it holding my rear window open:

This looks a great way to do it

It's a shame that by now some engineering minded person hasn't come up with a folding hi- lift jack.

its definitely possible this day and age but i dont think thats the issue, with as sketchy as hi-lifts can be i don't think anyone wants to add a folding/hinge element into the mix.

I had mine mounted similarly to Reddirt (post #422).

It wasn't that much of an obstruction when I was trying to get stuff in/out of the tailgate. But obviously it gets in the way if you are trying to load anything in that is larger and won't fit over or under it. It also was kind of a hassle to lower the soft top and fold the loose material under the jack.

I took the jack out last year. I only put it back in occasionally if I think I'll need it.
