Hi-Lift Mounting locations

I have seen the front bumper mount, not sure I want to put it there. I need more ideas.

If you have a swing out tire carrier, that is a good spot, here is mine

If you search the forum you can find other mounting locations

Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. G.I. Joe!

mud.....i got them at Lowe's. can't remember exactly what aisle i found them on, but it think they were in with the plumbing stuff. they are called 'conduit clamps'. i believe in the 2" diameter size. just find the length of bolt you will need, and the nuts and washers to space it out. i use a larger diameter flat washer on either side of the jack. i like it this way with the wing nut because it's really easy to take on and off. i use a kryptonite cable lock wrapped through the jack and around the rollbar when the top is off.

i saw someone recently that went with the same basic idea, but cut out using the conduit clamp and just drilled a hole through the rollbar and put a longer bolt through that and then used the same washer/wing nut design.

While I like the tidiness of mounting her on the roll bars on the inside, I prefer the jack to be located on the outside since space is a hot commodity in the Jeep. I've taken to the vertical mount:

The mount is incorporated into the bumper swingout; so it swings with the tire and rack. It serves well for me.

Cheers,
M

Eye Bolts, I replaced the ones that came with the rack with longer/stronger ones.
The base plate has one bolt through it for security/safety and two zip ties to keep it from moving or rattling
