Make sure after you get it, to read the instructions carefully. After that, in a safe location, practice using it to lift all 4 wheels. The first time you actually have to use it should not be the first time you use it.

It's gonna be more for looks than show to be honest. I like the look and will use it but I work 6 day weeks overnight and go to school full time. I don't get out much but when I wanna have the equipment already and not have to be like sorry guys can't go. And I've used one before and thy is very good advice though because the first time was not as easy as you would think

Didn't have to modify or drill anything. Bolts in under the hood hinges. Took me about 15min to put it together and install the mount

While I like those hood mounts, I'm 5'4" and don't weigh much. The idea of having to get it up and down from there without smacking my jeep scares me too much. So it's resting under the backseat till the psc bumper/tire carrier can be acquired.

Your Jeep Moustache Decal is the most hillarious, personalized decal I have EVER seen on a jeep. I nominate you for best Decal of the year award.

BRAVO!

The jack rattles too much so it says in the shed until an outing is planned.

Here's the photo, been so long since I posted one I couldn't remember how.
The LoD Gen3 tire carrier has a place to mount the Hi-Lift jack and a place for a CB radio antenna. The foot on the jack rattled so bad I don't carry it until I plan a day on the trail.

I just wanted to make a comment about bottle jacks. Choose your jacking location very carefully. They can slip easily. They are nice to have though. I have used bottle jacks on big rigs with and witihout problems. When I was in school for diesel mechanics our teacher had us practice with bottle jacks first. That meant crawling under a big rig and jacking it up. I had one slip and come back down while under it. Talk about pucker factor. Just wanted to put it out there. They are nice to use and work well but I would practice with them first before actually needing them. It's only the size of a half dollar you are supporting the weight with. When in doubt use a jack stand for saftey.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea.


Now that I have JW Speaker headlights, I need to prop the Hi-lift up about two inches. I have been trying to figure this out but I don't have any ideas. Anyone out there have a good mock up that would raise the jack up about two inches.

Lift mate won't fit tire.

Bought the lift mate online but found that my wheels are Eagle brand with 12 1 inch holes near the outside edge of the wheel but no spokes so I can' t use the hooks. Anybody else run into this and possible solutions? I'm thinking of getting a couple of eyebolts that I could push through the wheel holes and secure with a nut then put the liftmate hooks through the eyebolts but I'm worried about damaging the wheels. Anyone run into this problem? Thanks for tips.,

I use the liftmate in the holes in the rock rail. (nemesis billy rocker)

Also someone mentioned rattling, if you put the rubber stopper they sell and the neoprene booty on, its silent.
