HighLift Jack mounting

I'm ordering loads of parts of Quadratec and a highlift jack is one of them. The bumper mounts are expensive, and don't really want it outside of the jeep anyway. Where have you guys mounted yours? If I had to have it outside it would be on the hood. It's the 48" jack. thanks guys

Mine is on the hood. Only reason is because I am afraid of it coming loose in the Jeep and breaking a window, or hitting me in the head if I ever got into an accident. I will put it on my rear bumper once I bite the bullet and cough up the cash to buy a nice one with a carrier.

Downside about the hood is that it stops you from flipping the hood back and resting it on the windshield when working on the Jeep. It hits the cowl and will dent it if you forget. I also think it gets more grime from the road on it. Either way outside of the Jeep you should oil it regularly.

$15 in hardware to the rear bumper.
2 6" X 1/2" bolts
6 1/2" flat washers
4 1/2" nuts
2 1/2" wing nuts.

Mounted to my smittybilt SRC rear bumper. Drill the holes and make the bolts into mounting studs. Here is the pic I stole right here to make mine.

That's an awesome spot Joker I actually might move mine there lol. So far I have it inside the cab mounted to the rear of the main roll bar. It fits with the hardtop as long as I rotate it down a couple degrees, but I always have the top off so it stays like the pic shows.

I used these:

Here's some bad pics of it lol:

Those covers might last two trails rides if I am lucky.

One other big benefit of a hood mount is getting your jack when you need it. I was stuck in a mud hole last Saturday where I had to use my jack to lift the jeep and get logs under the tires so I could get out. That is just one of 4-5 times I didn't have to stand in 2-3ft of whatever I am stuck in to get out out.

I've got mine mounted behind the seats, across the wheel wells. See pics...
It's bolted down with wing nuts and is quickly and easily accessible, and stays protected inside.
If you have a back seat, it could also go behind that. This is a 48" HighLift.
