Hi-lift mounts showed up today. When I ordered them I asked how much over the roofline the top of the jack sat. TF said it didn't exceed the roofline. Not so much! It is a good 1-2" over the high point of the soft top. Maybe even a bit more. Not mad about it but it looked higher in the pics I've seen and now I know it is.

I'm on 35's and a 3" lift and getting into my standard height garage is tight. I still fit but if I add any air to my tires I won't with the jack mounted like that now. Might shave a 1/4" off the end of the jack handle for some breathing room.









The rubber trim is getting pushed out of the way when I drive in and out. It is so close to touching the non rubber trim right above it.

I was told it wouldn't be above the roof line too. But my measurements told me otherwise. Thanks for the info on this.

Ha! I suspected it might be over the roof line. I specifically asked Teraflex about that because I don't have much room to spare entering my garage. Mine would likely end up clearing like yours, if it cleared at all. I'm bummed about this now. I'm glad you reported this.

That is completely unacceptable! You should sell your mount ASAP and recoup your losses. Coincidentally, I know a guy looking for just such an accessory mount before his upcoming wheeling trip. Kurtz something or other, ill send him a PM for you.

yeah.. i spoke with Joe at TeraFlex a couple days ago. his jack is a 42" hi-lift, so it wasn't over the roof line. the 48" hi-lift is a touch over...

my antenna is even higher than that... so no garage time for me. still absolutely love the mount. i had a rampage hi-lift mount (worked great) but the way the mount set up (2 pieces) it sort of served as a trampoline for the jack... every bump was amplified.

the TF mount is a lot... i mean a lot quieter.. very very happy.

This is from Joe's Facebook page:

Joe At TeraFlex I'm using a 48" High Lift Jack and doesn't stand taller than my hardtop.

I haven't installed mine yet but I got it yesterday and I just ordered a 48" jack so I hope it is not much taller than my hard top or I will not be happy.

no, but i will say that my tire is noticeably higher on the tailgate than it was with the smittybilt mount... (and i am using the 35" tire mounts... not the 37" tire mounts)

like i said. i spoke with him on the phone.... he said - "i didn't realize, i'm running a 42" jack", he went on to say that he hoped that others would be okay with 48" jacks... and i'm sure we all will be.

if you want to store the jeep in your garage, take the jack off... i have to do the same (when my garage is finished) for the antenna and the jack..

Can someone with a soft top and new jack mount take a picture from the front and/or back eye level with the soft top? I know the soft top bows slightly above the level of the hard top. I'd like to see if I'll be able to clear the jack in my garage.

Do they make a 42" hi-lift or did Joe cut his?

How big of a highlift jack do you have? If needed could a person drill another set of holes on the jack base to lower the whole mount?!?

i expect to see some 48" hi-lift jacks for sale as a result of this... a 42" would sit below the roof line for sure.

The ONLY way a tire carrier can handle that kind of abuse is one that is designed for it. A rear stinger with the tubes on the outside of the tire such as Poison Spyder or Genright or a custom fabbed unit will do fine. I built one that I would drag and slam down on stuff all the time. One time the bumper to frame mount did bend a little but it was barely noticeable and I had the reinforcement bracket that had gussets too. I was a very big drop. LOL

Ha....just went out and stood on my front bumper to take the pic. Tried to take a step to the left without looking and fell right off the bumper. Small hole in the wall, ripped the crotch on my jeans, and picked up a couple of scrapes. My wife came running out and proceeded to die of laughter after she made sure I was okay.

Anyway here is the pic. It came at the price of some blood and new pants.

ive drug my carrier more than a few times. would have tacoed my tailed gate and ive also backed into a tree. i said backed but i slid down rock face into it. it hasnt affected the carrier. im asking if this design with the tailgate still being a mounting point can take any of this abuse or not.

Glad you're okay and thanks a ton for the picture. It doesn't look like yours will clear the garage from that angle.

Thanks for the link tabber.

Looks like I can still get this mount and go for the 42" hi-lift.

Thanks!

Maybe the picture isn't completely eye level. I did take it after I fell with my wife still laughing at me. It doesn't actually clear the rubber seal/flap hanging down from the door. It just pushes it out of the way. But it honestly couldn't be a millimeter or two higher and clear.

I'm already looking at the 42" option. Maybe someone will want to buy my 48" ones? I even have the brackets to mount the 48" size to the roll cage I can sell with them.

Or....any reason I can't just trim the one I have? I was thinking about that option but then I loose the top hole/anchor point. Not sure that I care but I guess if I want it to be fully functional I want to keep that anchor point.

I guess I need to delete that 60" hi-lift from my wish list :-)

Any reason that a 42" hi-lift shouldn't work ok for most situations you would need a hi-lift for?

first, thank you for the laugh..

i wonder if you could trim it or not. do you have the all cast jack? or cast and steel. i'm not sure how that'd hold up if you cut into it, being cast and all... would it weaken?

to answer your question... yeah, if you price it right, i would expect your jack to be gone pretty quickly... everyone with a lifted jeep ought to have a hi-lift...

really it all depends on how high your rig is... but yes, a 42" hi-lift should be plenty for just about any lift below 6" and 37s.

my hi-lift is my jack.. the stock jack won't even reach to lift my jeep without a cinder block or something under it.... so my hi-lift is my tool of choice. thankfully, i've only had to use it once.

42" will work...all-cast or steel, they're both rated for 7K lbs.

I just added the 42" Hi-Lift, handle isolator, and neoprene cover to my Amazon cart. $116.22

Now I need to find a place stocking the Teraflex mount...

Ahhh. Looks like you would be the best to answer your question by testing it for us

i would say so... this hinge and carrier combo is really stout. i was surprised how beefy everything was. i think it'd take quite a bit of force to screw up those hinges...

i dont have one. if some one one wants to lend me one attached to a jeep ill test it. after they sign a waiver of liability of course.

the issue i see is its still attached to the tail gate. the gate can support it now but if you come off something onto it your into body damage.

will this prevent this


have a video on that - Fast forward to 5:33

Lol. Not many takers on that request I'd guess. I see what you mean and what you are asking. Maybe someone will post up something regarding its capabilities in this arena

Joe At TeraFlex I'm using a 48" High Lift Jack and doesn't stand taller than my hardtop.

I haven't installed mine yet but I got it yesterday and I just ordered a 48" jack so I hope it is not much taller than my hard top or I will not be happy.
I need to change that statement on my FB page. I was under the impression that I had a 48" jack on mine. I'm actually going to trim the top 2-3" off mine so that I can close my tailgate and not take out the rear glass.

Since the TF carrier is screwed into the back of the tailgate, I'd imagine things would get ugly. It's a pretty stout design, the hinges and arms are way sturdier than the stock setup, and the spare is pulled in closer to the Jeep...but if you grounded the spare going off a ledge I think you'd trash your tailgate.
