Does anyone have a pic of the hood mounting kit that doesn't require drilling? Or even a link?

^^ What did you use for the base? Is it a basic L shape piece of steel?

I use the rollbar mount with the chain link fence tensioners. Used to take the foot off to mount it, but found if I rotated the tensioner around, I could mount the foot through the bottom. Threw a couple old rubber bushings from my old front shocks on there to keep things from making too much noise.

Its been mounted here before, but here is a different way:

Find some tailgate bumpers off of somebodys Jeep they are going to throw away. You will need two.

Take out the bolts and drill the last bolt inserts in the point of the hood hinges just a little bigger than a half inch bolt. Bolt holes will line up perfectly with the jack.

Go buy 2-3.5" x 1/2 bolts, 4 washers, and 2-1/2" wing nuts.

*Hint* There is a small metal washer inside of the rubber bumper, a drill bit will take it right out.

Assemble. The photos below will help. The bolt is a pain to get through the rubber bumper.

This setup WILL NOT RATTLE!!!!!




Just my $.02

Brilliant use of factory parts. I love reusing OEM stuff.

You have to have a Wilderness Rack, but it works great. Maybe I should turn it around, and act like co*king it when someone is tailgating me.

Personally I made a mount that fits behinde the rear seat to keep it inside and out of the weather, and prying eyes. I'll snap a pic of it when I get home from work and post it up
