I keep mine in the cab, right at the top of the rear seat. Strapped to the roll bar, and out of the rain. I cut a few inches off the total length, but it has never affected the use of it, and no rust on the jack or rust dripping onto my rig.
I see a lot of people mount them on the hood around here too.

There's a bunch of threads. Do an image search on google for "jeep wrangler hi lift mount" and you'll see a ton of good pictures.

I'd break down the options like this:

1) On the cowl
2) On the bumper (or on the spare tire mount) - both horizontally or vertically
3) On the roll bar
4) On the front bumper - horizontally (don't hit anything!)
5) Other - inside the hood, on the bull bar, under the rear seat of JKs, etc.

There's a good argument that mounting it outside can get it dirty and rusty, which depends to some extent on your climate and location. You can buy a little neoprene boot to protect the mechanism.

You need to figure out the best option for your situation. Look at the available mounts at Quadratec, as someone recommended. Amazon has a good selection of HiLift stuff too.

If you have room inside, then I'd recommend that option for security and protection from the elements.

Search the forum for "hi lift jack" - there's a ton of threads.

I don't like the idea of putting it on the bumper... what if I hit something?
I made my own mounts in the cab, right behind my tool box. Uses wing nuts to hold in place and is mounted on rubber washers to keep it from rattling/rubbing.

I used the roll bar mount from quadratec and I love it. Keeps it secure in cab so no mud or water get in it to corrode things up!
