|JOEDOG223||I think I'm probably gonna end up going with a hood mount.|

|Squirrel cage||I used the roll bar mount from quadratec and I love it. Keeps it secure in cab so no mud or water get in it to corrode things up!|

I made my own mounts in the cab, right behind my tool box. Uses wing nuts to hold in place and is mounted on rubber washers to keep it from rattling/rubbing.

There's a bunch of threads. Do an image search on google for "jeep wrangler hi lift mount" and you'll see a ton of good pictures.
I'd break down the options like this:
1) On the cowl
2) On the bumper (or on the spare tire mount) - both horizontally or vertically
3) On the roll bar
4) On the front bumper - horizontally (don't hit anything!)
5) Other - inside the hood, on the bull bar, under the rear seat of JKs, etc.
There's a good argument that mounting it outside can get it dirty and rusty, which depends to some extent on your climate and location. You can buy a little neoprene boot to protect the mechanism.
You need to figure out the best option for your situation. Look at the available mounts at Quadratec, as someone recommended. Amazon has a good selection of HiLift stuff too.
If you have room inside, then I'd recommend that option for security and protection from the elements.
Search the forum for "hi lift jack" - there's a ton of threads.

I keep mine in the cab, right at the top of the rear seat. Strapped to the roll bar, and out of the rain. I cut a few inches off the total length, but it has never affected the use of it, and no rust on the jack or rust dripping onto my rig.
I see a lot of people mount them on the hood around here too.
