It looks like that is able to mount anywhere so I guess you'd have to drill holes?

Why not just decide on where you want to put the high lift and then design the mounting bracket around that, Mines bolted through the rear cross member

I had one of those 4XRAC HighLift Mounts and I have to go with Vaultzz on this one . . . that mount really kinda sucked and there are a bunch of way better options. Where do you want to put it?

I use that mount. It's not to bad for moderate offroading, I haven't had any issues but it all depends on the terrain. I mounted it to the backside of my bumper. The mounts go long way side to side. Easiest way to give you measurements is on the driverside from the end of the bumper to the outside of the mount is 8.25" and on the passengerside same things except with the way the mount works on my hi lift I got 8". From the top of the bumper to the top of the mount 1". I used a leveler to make sure everything was as even as possible. I hope that wasn't too confusing, I kinda confused my self lol. I'll add pics tommorow.

High Lift

Went another way to secure the high-lift. Got two 2" exhaust clamps at NAPA , painted black, got two L brackets, two sets of 3/8" bolts and wing nuts. Mounted across the back from roll-bar to roll-bar. Has easy axcess from back, and is inside secure.. Just another idea, with not much cash out-lay.

Even easyer than that...
Take them rubber bumpers that came for the spare tire (if you still use yours, they're all over ebay) drill the hole in the center out a little bit, go down to home depit and buy some longer screws and useing the bump stops, bolt the lift right to your hood hinge.

Seen it done, looked great. I don't like the jack across my hood, so I bought an "I-Rack" from smittybuilt.

Nice thing about Rocky Bar's set up is that when the top is up, the jack is out of the elements so you don't have to service it as much and it keeps it a bit more secure and out of sight from crooks.
