Hi-Lift Jack Mount for Hitch Receiver

Anybody use this:

Hi-Lift Jack Mount for Hitch Receiver



I am looking for feedback, but also suggestions. I don't plan on attaching it to a bumper, since I have stock... hate the hood mount. Saw one that goes at the top rear of the roll cage; like that, sort of.

So, after poking around, the hitch receiver seemed like a good idea and easy to throw on when heading out wheeling.

The HiLift shouldn't bee carried outside-AT ALL-

It should be stored inside, in a HiLift case/Jackguard, or secured under the rear seats !

I think you've seen all the different ways of storing it inside-

I keep mine inside. I've watched too many hitches drop onto rocks to keep my HiLift out there. Just my 2 cents.

Ugh, can't you all give me the answer I want to hear

In my defense, and really I have no defense -- I was only planning on putting it on when I was heading out. You know, in to that sunny, dry heat...

There are guys on this forum that have the hilifts (48") stowed under the rear seats/bracketed to the rear of the roll cage and-

Mine is in the "Jackguard", but its strapped to my Harnes bar, although there are other places to strapto-







Don't ever getta 60" HiLift--no place to keepem inside-and you don't need that extra 12" !!

Nice hard case.. Ok, mine is a 60". Got a great deal from a Cherokee bud.. So it is what it is.. I could sell it and pick up a 48".... Probably won't be wheeling it too soon, so not gonna worry about it for now.

I used it when I had the Cherokee.. Strapped it to the basket and go.. It's been useful.. But to store it in the Wrangler, would be nice to have the 48"... Except for storage, there is no reason why not to have the 60".. And for a killer price.. 14" sneakers? Not a great analogy..

Got tired of waiting for someone to agree with me, so I went and ordered it from eBay. It's a local pick up in Tucson, so - w00t! - no shipping $.

I'll let you know how it turns out (e.g. lost on the trail, ripped off the hitch, etc.).

Cheers,

I used to have mine on the bumper, and while I never had any trouble getting to it when needed, it didnt take a lot of imagination to see how it could get buried, I dont keep mine inside, its spent 2 winters outside, ice, snow, -35 deg. temps, still works like new (secret is keep it oiled), I carry mine on the top bar of my resr bumper/tire carrier, easy to get to, out of the way, and in an accident I dont have to worry about getting hit in the back with it
