Hi-lift jack hood mount on the cheap

Needed a temporary solution for carrying my Hi-Loft jack and had a pair of .75 x 1.75" long spacers left over fromt suspension seat install. Picked up (4) .75" ID slip collars, shot them with some flat black and mounted them with 3.25" 8mm bolts. Seems like a good temporary fix for about $15 or less.

Siiiiiiiiick rig!

Nice job on the hi jack mount. Love the overall look of your jeep. How did you mount your basket to the hard top? What basket is that?

Thanks, yes - the entire Jeep is Superlined inside and out. MetalCloak fenders and I had the cage fab'd out of aluminum with full length billet mounts that sandwich the top. I get a lot of questions in the coating and rack, so I may do a thread for them when I have time.
