I wouldn't get a 60" high lift if it were me, I have a 48" high lift and have never needed more lenght. A 60' high lift would have to be mounted verticle and you most likely would have problems with overhead clearance like fitting into a garage or parking facility. I have my 48" mounted verticly and I can fit into my garage and parking facilities with out any problem.The only other way that I can think of to mount a 60" without any clearance problems would be to mount it on an angle putting the base at the rear of the Jeep and the top angled and connected to the top of the roll bar. Off hand I don't know if this would interfer with a top though.

I ageee w/ Steelhead. 48" is plenty. You should anyway be lugging around a good pice of all-purpose 4x4 scrap wood (mine's pressure treated - my tub is rotting faster than it). This not only serves as helpful base, but that's 4" extra inches of lift if needed. A good wood block has about 100 other uses or so once out and about.
