I like this mount, but don't know if I want to drill holes... I was planning to dril rear bumper and mount it horizontally, but I may take this option.

Yeah, I will probably do something like this. The trooper was nice because there was space in the sides of the cargo area panels to store stuff - but not so on the JK. It does have the little spot near the cargo door, but the hi-lift parts would suck up most of that space I think. I dunno what I will do. I have a feeling I will drill some holes in the handle bar, so I can bolt that on to the bumper too, but I dunno what I will do with the working-part of the jack. We'll see.

Zip-tie or bungie to free space under the hood.

I think they are too big for under the hood, isn't it?

No, not the parts. We're talking about mounting the main bar on the bumper, and putting the base and other giblets thoughout the Jeep, to store them.

This was my temporary rigging that didn't take up lots of space.

Just thinking out loud and since I don't have a HiLift to measure, I'm going to throw this out. Would one fit on the inside of the tailgate door mounted horizontally?

Will the high lift jack work with the new plastic bumper cover?

Those actually look homemade? I personally wouldn't put one up there (to each his own) but I don't like the looks of those brackets.

I think the brackets look a lot better than that nasty high-lift sitting up there on that beautiful hood. He could have at least painted the high-lift to patch (:

The brackets are actually a cool idea. I'd be interesting in using the idea for something else, but not the high-lift. Smack into something at 60mph and I bet that thing is definitely could to give someone a bad day.

Saw the hood mounts on 4 Wheel Parts catalog. I like the idea for several reasons. First, no need to drill new holes. Drilling holes in a vehicle just bothers me. Secondly, It doesn't look bad at all to me. A little green paint on the jack would probably look better, I agree, but hey. It's a contrast thing. If he likes it that color, then great. It reminds me of Christmas. That reminds me. I hope Santa brings me a new front bumper with a winch this year.
