Question Best way to mount a jack

I want to mount a hi-lift on my rig, but i dont want to pay 100 dollars or more on a stupid metal bracket that i could probably make myself. Has anybody made mounts for a jack?

On second thought, has anybody made mounts for anything? I want to mount a shovel, axe, and jerry can too, all things they sell way too expensive mounts for.

got any DIY tips or tricks?

its not in the way that much either. when it gets warmer out and i put my soft top on ill buy some chain and lock it to the roll bars so no body can steal it. as for everything else that you wanna attach, buy yourself 100ft rope (not poly pro) and learn how to tie knots.

Well, I've got my shovel mounted on the front bumper, using Quick-Fists, but only when going off-road !!


I've got the HiLift mounted on my recovery box on the 4XRAC mounts ($30) bucks
