I've got mine mounted on the side of my Yakima Loadwarrior with some U-bolts & wing nuts. It's very ghetto but it's been working for 8 years.

Good idea. I have the same bumper and will give that a try.

Theft proof as long as my tailgate is locked.

I simpy bolted mine to my front stock bumper using the existing stock holes. I had a scrap piece of trated 2x4 and cut 4 blocks. I put 2 on the back side of the bumper and 2 on the front and used bolts, washers, and lock nuts. The two blocks on the outside are all you really need. I just put the 2 on the back for a little cushioned bite for the bolts. I have since painted the blocks black to blend with the bumper. It was a $0 dollar mount for me because I had the stuff just lying around. He is a link to a pic. Hope it is big enough to see. I don't know how to get the pic to show up so I have to post the link.

kinda reviving a dead thread.
i want to mount my hi lift on the hood like the tough stuff but i dont want to buy it cause im cheap.
anyone want to post some close up pics of theirs so i can see what it is like?
just seems like a piece of metal and some spacers should do the trick right?
please and thank you.

^probably sarcasm.

Welded some simple brackets to mine to mount it. I can remove it or install it in about two seconds, but is mounted very solid. It lives in the garage until it hits the trail, so i'm not worried about weather getting to it. I keep a can of liquid wrench in the toolbox to spray it down when/if needed.

i mounted mine on the hood using two 3 inch bolts and a couple of nuts and washers for spacing. i plan on drilling a hole at the top of one of the bolts so i can slip a padlock through and not worry about theft

cool factor here, but i'd be concerned w/ it getting dried out from constant wind/grime. lube up the mechanism and wrap it w/ some sort of wind/water proof material. Also, ur nice bumper is of little use given that the jack will take the impact so it kind of defeats the purpose for a front bumper...

Look it's a 4.6!

I'm too lazy to go through the 134 other posts on this thread, so this may have already been addressed, but a word of caution about mounting your jack outside your vehicle--especially low. You'll get mud in the moving parts, and then have a heck of a time using it when you need it. I mount mine on the fenderwells across the width of the jeep (granted, I don't have a back seat to worry about accessing).

I know I've posted it before, but I'll post it again.









Clamps are from McMaster-Carr. If you do a search on their site for "2 piece clamp-on shaft" you'll find em.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.
