How is your Hi-Lift Jack Mounted?

How do you mount / stow your Hi-Lift jack on your YJ?

I am trying to get some ideas and I know this is the place to get them!

BTW, photos are always appreciated!

Behined passenger seat, mounted to the verticle roll bar.
Used two chain link fence tensioners(sp), carriage bolts, nuts, wing nuts and washers. I also used some thin double sided sticky foam between the tensioners and roll bar to add grip and avoid scratching (I left the paper on the roll bar side...to avoid a mess later)

The jack fits Fully Assembled, standing straight up. It just needs to be clicked up about 6 or 7 notches to clear the seat belt mechanism. It limits the movement of the passenger seat...but not bad, mine is in a comfortable position for myself and any passengers I have had. It is Easily accessed by folding the pass seat forward........remove two wing nuts.....jack is out! Vice versa...it's back in! I have a Car Seat in the back on the pass side and I get my 2.5 year old in/out every day with no problem.....I hardly know the jack is there.




clicky for larger pic.

Those are the Exact materials I used, but with my location it is mounted Fully Assembled (no need to remove the base), and the Back Seat can still be used With Passengers.
I don't think my way works for TJ's...the floor is different, Or if you have a sound bar.

I thought I posted on this before, but I guess not. I have mine installed behind the back seat. I ran a couple of long bolts up through behind the wheel wells, bolted an old skate board wheel on it for a spacer and vibration control, then used a wing nut to hold it down. It is out of the elements and out of they way. You will want to get the daystar bushind to hold the handle in place. It is much quieter that the little metal clip that comes on it.

Thanks for all of the replies!

I got the "Moab" set up at the local farm supply store today. Total cost was $4.90.

I mounted the Hi-Lift Extreme across the back, above my tuff box, with a fence tensioner attached to each roll bar riser. Fits nice and tight, doesn't hit the soft top, and is secured with a cable and padlock!

LMAO!
... then I saw you were from Philly, so your reply made sense!

Seriously, I wheeled it all day Saturday and the $4.90 set-up held up great! No movement or rattling. The handle keeper helped out too.

Thanks again MOAB!
