Hello everybody
Just joined the site. Had my rubicon for over a year and did a fair amount of work on it over the last few months. I'm trying to see if anybody had any ideas whether or not I even need a 48 hi lift jack and second...whether I could actually mount it to a smittybuilt XRC rear bumper? Seems like it is a bit of a painful endeavor as I have a 3 inch lift and 35 inch tires....any ideas?

If the 48 in is the taller of the two then no you wont need it, but it doesnt hurt to have the extra few inches, im on a 6 in lift with 35s, and have the shorter one out of the two, i just forget what inch is the tallest and shortest. and i mounted mine on the hood. i can see, it doesnt get dinged up on anything, no road debree. and easy to get on and off. . plus you can see it and make sure it doesnt get loose or anything

I think i read your question wrong, A jack isnt a necessity, but if you ever need it, its nice to have. lol. also the 48in is the shorter one, and the 60 in is the taller one, a 48 in lifts mine up just fine to change a tire. so you should be good.
