I have mine mounted in the garage. Been there for 5 years.. works great. Only concern I have with the above is crap getting into lever, lock thingy being down like that on the bumper.

Unless you want to limit your off road experience, you might want to reconsider putting that jack higher up. Mud bogs and tight trails are going to abuse it for sure.

just my .02

it will probably get put on the hood or mounted somewhere in the back of jeep eventually. But for $30 it's ok on the bumper for now.
I wanted to mount it on the top of the bumper (the original plan) but the jack touches the fenders. Too close.

Mine is mounted to roll bar with clamps from McMaster Carr.

Keeps it dry/clean (except when top off).





So stable, I can actually stand on it and it will NOT move.

I've used mine to help change a flat in a gully at Wheelin' in the Country. No other jack would work. So I have used mine as well, just not too often. Being accessible is key. Being clean enough to use ranks right up there!

That's where I was wanting to mount one as well.
Is there enough clearance for it to be mounted in that position if you have a hard top?

I hung mine under a custom back deck-cover. It keeps it hidden, along with any other crap that I don't want stolen...

Those are Knaack #28 hand tool chests bolted down at rear seat hardware sites. I got 2 used from a place in Az. Despite what the website says they were not near new, but turned out fine after paint and grip tape. Call and negotiate a cheaper shipping rate. CESTools.com.
You can sit on them for short distances. The grip tape is too abrasive though, I should have used some kind of smooth foam/rubber adhesive backed stuff.

I made the deck cover from 3/4 inch plywood. I think it was 58" across- it site on the lip of my hardtop and is bolted through the hardtop mounting holes. I found a pre-cut peace of outdoor carpet at HomeDepot and caulked it to the top. I used a 2" and a 4" U-Bracket to hang the High Lift underneath diagonally. It fits perfectly. The front 2" bracket never moves or is adjusted. When I need the jack, I take off the larger U-bracket and just slide the jack out of the front smaller one. It works very well. On the top side of the cover, I mounted heavy-duty eyelit bolts, one at each corner. I use those to bungy crap to the top of the deck lid...shovel, saw etc... The whole project was under $50. It's a pain in the ass to get the thing in and out of the Jeep, but that's kind of the point I guess- adds to the security.

so does the deck come off with the hardtop or stay in place?
Fromur description it sounds like ur saying that it is bolted to the hardtop...and not not the jeep>>??

no- the bolt goes through the deck then into the existing holes in the roof/body. When I take the roof off, I'll remove those bolts, take out the decklid, then take off the roof. Once I get the roof off, I'm going to see how it looks with the decklid still on there...
