high lift jack

I just bought a high lift jack and was wondering if anyone has mounted it on the rear bumper. I don't have bumperetts. it appears that the bumper is actually part of the frame......how do I install it on the back.

if you are standing on the north pole and every direction is south.....then which way does the sun rise and set

'02 black grand cherokee limited...completely stock...wife wont let me near it with a wrench and a jeep parts catalog .. lol

sounds like you don't have a rear bumper at all....just the rear frame cross member.......so you'd have to install a bumper 1st then decide how to mount the hilift. If not having a bumper is OK with you, you could get some long lag bolts/carraige bolts and slide them from the inside-out, secure it with a nut, then slip the hilift over and secure with washers and wing nuts.

There is a hilift universal mount available in just about any mag, just mount to any flat surface.

hilift will take a beating outside the jeep though...... I mounted mine standing straight up behind the passenger seat, got some metal fence tension clamps, carriage bolts and wing nuts holding it to the vertical roll bar.

Here is how I mounted mine...

2 - 2 1/2 inch muffler clamps
2 - 4 inch pieces of angle channel
2 - 3/8 inch bolts with nuts and lock washers
1 - can of Rustoleum bare metal primer
1 - can of Chrysler red engine paint.
1 - cable bicycle lock

The rest you can figure out from the picture.
