Off topic, sorry.

JD, to give you a very rough estimate of the forces involved in a high speed crash, just mentally reverse the things that are moving.

Let me try to explain. Envision the Jeep is stopped, and the things inside almost instantly accelerated to 65 mph.

When evaluating a tie-down, envision the item you are tying down being HIT by an object moving 65mph. Will it hold?

Now back to your mount. If the Jeep were stopped, and the mounted Hi-Lift were hit by a Hi-Lift going 65 mph, do you thing all the components of your mount would hold?

While you may have resigned yourself to death in a high speed crash, you should point that out to others, when talking about your mount.

I've lived through a high speed crash, where an unsecured toolbox went from the back, through the windshield, and out the front. If it had been on the driver's side OR if I had a passenger, this would be a horrible story.

For everyone else, secure everything that you are not willing to have hit you in the head at 60 mph.

Hey CNY. I already had cancer, wipped it's azz. So now my slightly high colosterol is more likelyhood of taking me out than the jack. Maybe Indian Point will blow up too. You can put your jack aanywhere you want. I like the Jack where it is.

it seems to be a good design in my opinion. If he did have a 65mph head on collision into a brick wall, it appears the jack would just rotate into a horizontal orientation, like a swing, and absorb a lot of the energy. Nobody sitting in the back seat of that jeep without a backseat anyway. I give it a thumbs up, clean.

I like mine better though, no pics here at work but I stole the idea from somebody on here anyway. The old exhaust clamp trick around rear rollbar, similar to where JD has his.

I don't think I've ever heard so much jaw-jacking about mounting hardware in my life...

What a tool! Hey go and check out the PBB and then take a happy pill. God gave you 2 eyes, 2 ears and one mouth. Figure it out and check your attitude
Think outside the nice box of comfort and realise that companies will "suggest great places" to mount their junk, as to be able to sell you more junk. It's how they stay in business. I would never mount a tool that can rust, corrode, get filled with all manner of debris and require a good cleaning and lube job before I can use it for it's intended purpose on the OUTSIDE of my Jeep. Sure you take care of your Jeep, but if you are so afraid of dinging it up or otherwise hurtin your heep, your stock jack will work nicely in the mall parking lot.

Ok just found a prime spot for mine this past weekend.. it just so happens that my 48" will fit standing up behind the driver seat strapped to the vertical bar of the stock roll cage with the bottom of it resting on the lower floor... a few bungees or strips of velcro and your good to go! plus it keeps it out of the elements such as rain and those damn deer that always seem to jump out at you! jk

This is why you don't put the Hi-lift on the front bumper:







And it only took about 2 trips to do it! It wasn't even a very deep hole--just a really bad line befitting the newbie I am.... A grand total of 2 weeks on the front bumper. I fell for the same marketing ploy you did. It seemed like a good idea, because there's no other good place to put the thing on a stock TJ, but that's how we learn, I guess.

You can still use that. It's just you now have a 34" highlift instead of the standard 48".

I mounted mine about six inches higher than JeeperDon's rig. I used 2 1/8 exhaust clamps(painted of course) with wing nuts over the other nuts. All hand tight. It's on top of the cage on the bend. I'll use the soft top cover with my "lay in the dirt" pad for passenger comfort if I ever put the back seat in again !

well i have the steves fab. front and rear bumpers with the tire carrier and he already puts on the tabs to mount a hi-lift but the problem is, the jack blocks the license plate and i dont really feel like getting pulled over all the time for something stupid, so i decided to get some 2x2 angle iron and mount it up on the angled bars for the tire carrier.
