Hilift hood mounts..

So i looked on ebay and ordered some HOOD mounts for my new jack...

the mounts are nice.. only issue is... 1/8 inch diff on the 90 degree bends..

Maybe there's a reason for this? Can you return them? If you try to do anything as far a reshaping goes the powder coat will prolly come off. JK or JKU? I can't remember, I was overwhelmed.

Nah, if you got a 4 door just shove it under the back seat. Unless you have the 60" jack, if you do trade it for a 48"

I have the tuff stuff products hood rack with a 54" hi lift on it and its been fine. Good quality and you could probably mount light on it too.

The manufacture is sending me a new pair.. If anyone wants this pair that is slightly bent please pm me.. Local only gladly meet up with you before a trail ride... You will need mounting hardware.

It's nice to see a company stand by its product and replace it...
