Show Me Your Mounted and Locked Hi-Lifts!

I bought a Hi-Lift today at our local NAPA.

I want to make a permanent mount point for it and it needs to lock securely as this rig spends some time every week in very high crime areas. It *will* be taken off my jeep in that three hour period, for certain, if it is not locked down really well.

I would prefer a hood cowl mounting location, but am interest to see any and all solutions. So please post up some photos of how you chose to mount and lock down your Hi-Lift.

Thanks!

Sorry this is the only pic I have where you can really see the whole thing. There's a member on here that makes the hood mounts for around $40-$50 and has a place for a padlock which you can see to the right of my pic.

never liked them on the front hood area.. seems like an accident waiting to happen.. rear bumper mount seems to be safer.

I mounted mine inside to make it less visible to hopefully keep it from getting stolen.
It obviously isn't mounted in this pic but you can see the mounts for mounting it across the back.
