Also someone mentioned rattling, if you put the rubber stopper they sell and the neoprene booty on, its silent.

Lift mate won't fit tire.
Bought the lift mate online but found that my wheels are Eagle brand with 12 1 inch holes near the outside edge of the wheel but no spokes so I can' t use the hooks. Anybody else run into this and possible solutions? I'm thinking of getting a couple of eyebolts that I could push through the wheel holes and secure with a nut then put the liftmate hooks through the eyebolts but I'm worried about damaging the wheels. Anyone run into this problem? Thanks for tips.,

Now that I have JW Speaker headlights, I need to prop the Hi-lift up about two inches. I have been trying to figure this out but I don't have any ideas. Anyone out there have a good mock up that would raise the jack up about two inches.

|jksport12||I just wanted to make a comment about bottle jacks. Choose your jacking location very carefully. They can slip easily. They are nice to have though. I have used bottle jacks on big rigs with and witihout problems. When I was in school for diesel mechanics our teacher had us practice with bottle jacks first. That meant crawling under a big rig and jacking it up. I had one slip and come back down while under it. Talk about pucker factor. Just wanted to put it out there. They are nice to use and work well but I would practice with them first before actually needing them. It's only the size of a half dollar you are supporting the weight with. When in doubt use a jack stand for saftey.|

Here's the photo, been so long since I posted one I couldn't remember how.
The LoD Gen3 tire carrier has a place to mount the Hi-Lift jack and a place for a CB radio antenna. The foot on the jack rattled so bad I don't carry it until I plan a day on the trail.

|Pushrod||The jack rattles too much so it says in the shed until an outing is planned.|

Your Jeep Moustache Decal is the most hillarious, personalized decal I have EVER seen on a jeep. I nominate you for best Decal of the year award.

|snochick||While I like those hood mounts, I'm 5'4" and don't weigh much. The idea of having to get it up and down from there without smacking my jeep scares me too much. So it's resting under the backseat till the psc bumper/tire carrier can be acquired.|

|Farnham21||It's gonna be more for looks than show to be honest. I like the look and will use it but I work 6 day weeks overnight and go to school full time. I don't get out much but when I wanna have the equipment already and not have to be like sorry guys can't go. And I've used one before and thy is very good advice though because the first time was not as easy as you would think|
|12-13-2012 06:11 AM|
|Gbobva||Make sure after you get it, to read the instructions carefully. After that, in a safe location, practice using it to lift all 4 wheels. The first time you actually have to use it should not be the first time you use it.|

|Farnham21||Bump or this thread. I want to get a hi lift for Christmas and want to mount it on the hood, anyone got any recommendations on hood mounts and jacks for that fact?|

Safari Straps Sighting!!
Very nice rig.

The mounts are welded on the carrier and jack bolts into them and a lock to help keep it there
|10-28-2012 06:33 PM|
Maybe Joe that owns it can get a few for you. He's on the forum. Cant remember his name on here.

|PieFace||can you back up the camera and show us the mount on that wheel?|
|10-28-2012 10:06 AM|
|JPi1||We chose this method for a JK customer, 1 1/4" tube clamps, machined the back side flat, drilled and tapped for 1/2" and screwed a wheel stud through the back. A couple of 1/2" rubber blocks and install the Hylift.|

|doufus1||I found it easier to carry a couple of pieces of wood in the car. Use them for packing under the jack. No need to have that bloody heavy hi lift jack, it lives in the shed now.|

|Big Whiskey||Looking into getting a hi lift jack and had some questions that I am hoping some of you can answer. Does it have to be used on the bumper if you are using it to change a tire? I have the stock plastic bumpers and was curious to know if it would wreck them when trying to lift the jeep.|

GREAT HI-LIFT ARTICLE
I've been reading up on hi-lifts a bunch lately. I found a great PDF Hilldweller recommended about useing hi-lifts here-> http://www.overlandexperts.com/docs/..._fall_2008.pdf
I'm thinking I'm going to get the red 48" one with a JackMate attachment vs going with the extreme one. I'm wanting to keep it inside, so 60" is a bit out of the question. 60" seem to fit well on the hood. I have heard of a few people who have chopped there 60" down to a smaller size.
I'm also going to get the LiftMate. That seems to be the best thing you can have if you get hi-centered on a diff, so the suspension doesn't just droop down as you jack the Jeep up. In the PDF above he mentions being about to use a tree recovery strap in a pinch.

I found a pretty cool aftermarket slider adapter over on a FJ(fake jeep) forum. I'm a bit too cheap for it. I think I will use a tree strap wrapped around my ace rock rails a few times, if need be. Hi-Lift Tubing Adapter RTC-HLA134
I plan on using a piece of 2X8 board to supplement the base. I'm planning on using some bolts and wing nuts to hold the base down.
