i see you are smart and mount the HL in an easily accessable location-- not buried under trail gear, in a location to scratch the paint, etc getting it off or secured where it does double duty as a bumper stopping rocks. I'm curoius why you removed the foot pad? Is it due to space limitations? If its the rattle, we have a solution-- take off the foot pad, squirt in a good gob of clear silicone and push it back into position. After a few days it will dry and remain semi-soft-- and presto! no more rattles. a small length of velcro will wrap around the climbing bar and the handle eliminating rattles there as well.

looks good-- just keep it well lubricated. The HL jacks have a way of drying out and are theu prone to failure when u need it most. I keep mine well lubricated and the climbing pins, vital components, etc are enclosed in a small water-proof canvas bag held in place w/ zip ties, so this way, after months and months of sitting on the rig, it will be in ready condition-- no more hunting up WD40 on the trail just to get ur dried-up HL to properly function.

Took the Cast Foot Piece off due to space limitation as you suspected. It is mounted via one of the bolted spacers and two zip ties to keep it from rattling.
It has been out there on the jeep for three years so far and only used twice, once to lift a Ford pickup for a guy without a jack, and once to pull up 10 fence posts for the neighbor with a short length of chain. (I had never done this before but he showed me how, to think of all the times I dug and dug to get them darn things out).
Its 20+ years old (been moved from rig to rig) and I stripped it down and repainted it before putting it on the jeep. So far, here in the west with minimal rust it is just fine. I do keep it oiled.
Still works like new, but that is due to good care and only using it 1-4 times a year.

Inside HiLift Mount

2004 YJ - got rid of rear seat for extendatrunk, put it on top of that.
mounts on studs with pipe nipples for spacers, I use carriage bolts with wingnuts underneath for security

Put my jack on my hood, easily accesible, out of the way, and looks cool imo.

when I bought my jeep, it had a hi-lift mounted on the front bumper,


I didn't really like it being there, because if I didn't keep it lubed, the mechanisum would start to rust, and stick.
I built a storage system to go in the back of the jeep, and decided to move the jack inside,

Cost under 20 bucks with clamps and cable lock









I got the clamps from http://www.mcmaster.com/ search Routing Clamps & Hangers and got all thread and the nuts from work. Cable lock at wal-mart.

desplay of the hi-lift externally adds to the cool factor and provides easy and fast access in an emergency. sad thing, every run i've been on over 20 years when a driver needs his hi-lift, its bone dry and will not operate until someone hunts up some penetrating oil. so i came up w/ a water proof canvas bag that slips around the fital components and keeps it all nice, lubed and ready for action. One could use a ski gater, water proof and designed to keep snow from ur ski boots. try this and u'll always be glad, otherwise, haula round a jack that will not work when u need it most.

this is not to be confused w/ the bag hhi-lift sells which believe is junk-- u really only need to protect the springs, climbing pins, etc. pix upon request.

I used the 4XRAC mounts normally used to mount to your front or rear bumper. I mounted them to the top of the rear wheel wells. Mounted mine in a LJ, so I'm not sure of the fit in the normal sized jeep. $30 + some better hardware than the supplied crap from 4XRAC.




Needed to modify the supplied cover plate due to using the furthermost holes on the HiLift, which was making contact with the base plate.

Note to those who mounted up front (I had mine up there)...Mine was seized up on the first use, and it had been mounted there for less than a month. Cool...yes but a PITA when needed.
