48" Hi-Lift on inside

Hey,
Does anyone have a 48" Hi-Lift mounted inside the Jeep? I bought the conduit brackets and hardware to install it on the back rollbars, but my jack is too short to reach the rollbars on each end?

Thanks!

I have a 48 inch jack and it fits pretty good. Mounted to the top of the rear uprights. I'll snap a pic at lunch in a few.

Okay, here's my jack mount. Fits just right and leaves plenty of room to carry stuff. Use chain-link fence hardware from Lowes or wherever you like to shop, the off-set reaches inside the bars to fit better.

Thanks for taking those pics. I didn't think about going up higher on the bars. It might fit then...will try tonite.

That's a good spot for it, still leaves a lot of space. Give us an update when you're done!

Following up on this with some photos. As you can see, my lift comes short on each side of the roll bar. From all the research and photos I've seen of other setups, I can't understand why mine is short? Am I missing something simple here? Everyone else just mounts it to the rollbars, but it seems I'd have to find some kind of bracket or something. I just wanted to use the conduit hangers but I can't.
Do I have a weird Hi-Lift jack or something?

Nope thats a pretty normal jack, the only thing I see is that you have the end "clamp" type piece folded against the jack. Its supposed to be bolted through that top offset hole. then you'd have the option to point it up which would extend the jack length about 2 1/2 inches

Thanks Vaultzz ----

Ok, so you're saying that flat metal piece that is bolted at the top of the jack needs to be flipped around and bolted on the top-most hole?

That would definitely give me enough room for a conduit or muffler clamp.

Fence clamps, a couple eye bolts, a couple wingnuts/washers/lockwashers, and some yellow wire as a safety back-up for the bolts/wingnuts.








That said, I rarely carry the Hi-Lift anymore. For most uses, a factory LandRover bottle jack is the ticket, plus it weighs less and takes up less space. Not my picture, but this shows the jack pretty well:

I'm in total agreement. I almost never use my HiLift. My Jeep flexes too much to use it. I have to use a ratchet strap from the frame to my axle when I use my HiLift to change a tire. Pain in the ass. Bottle jack is the way to go.
