Awesome! Personally, I'd throw it in a fire-blanket in the back seat. That's where mine is. See if you can use it! Better yet, get some pics!

If it's a 48", you can buy 2" muffler hangers at the autoparts store, cut a slot in the foam padding, and mount it for about $5. There's a thread called "lets see your Hi-lift mounts....worth a look...

Edit: it's the first sticky thread in "cheap tricks and fixes" in general discussion

I used the same thing and fit my 60" Hi-Lift across the rear roll bar, just above the tailgate. I took off the pointy tip at the end to make it fit within the soft-top. Cost: about $5. No need to cut a slot in the padding. Just wrap the hangers around the padding. Or buy some U-shaped bolts at Home Depot in the electrical section.

By using a narrower clamp, I was able to mount the jack straight to the ends of the u-bolts, with no added hardware (except thumbscrews and lock washers). For my mount, this meant cutting away some padding, so the mounts fit flush around the steel roll bar. It fits inside the bars, but the only issue putting the top down is with the canvas rubbing the base of the jack. I gorilla glued some window trim around it, so it won't accidently tear my top! my $.02
