I'm excited! One..because the All Breeds Jeep Show was Schweet!!! and two, because it gave me inspiration. I have a high lift jack did not have the mounts for it. I like it when they are mounted next to the spare tire but I was told you have to replace the entire tire carrier to get one with a mount...so I made my own! I wish I was thinking about the forum when I was building and attaching it cause I would have loved to do a step by step. But basically I took 1/8 x 2" strap steel found at home depot, and used 2 - 1/2" x 4" bolts and 2 - 1/2" wing nuts. I took the plastic covers off of the stock tire rack and welded the mount to it. I'll attach the pictures of the after math. I of course painted it with the rustoleum truck bed liner spray. If anyone wants a more detailed step by step please PM me and I'd be happy to make one up! Please let my know what you think!

I'd use a ny-loc nut in place of the wing nut for 2 reasons. 1) vibration won't cause it to come off and 2) a ny-loc makes it harder to steal. Yes you will need a wrench to remove it, but to me it's worthwhile and you should have wrenchs anyway.
Dang that is tall, is that the 48" version? It seems to be too tall to be the usual 48" jack that is common on Jeeps. That seems like it'd drag or hit when driving in some of those multi-level parking garages with the low roofs.
