I payed about $40 with an online coupon at Northern Tool for my Torin big red jack and it has been more than great for me. I also payed $30 for the mounts from the gentleman who sells them who posted on this thread earlier.

AMP'd Finally done! Received the mounts a few days ago but wasn't able to catch any spare daylight from work until today. Really satisfied with the mounts.

As far as locking the jack on, you have to unbolt the license plate mount, remove the spare tire, remove the cable lock (gun lock) then unbolt the jack from the 2 mount points.
That is a great idea. I never thought of using a gun cable lock. I am going to use this idea. I need a way to lock it up. I have a few laying around. Thanks.

I haven't done it yet but I plan on making the rear tire carrier lockable which would secure the jack and the rear doors. Still in the works though.

AirJunky Seems to me it would be nice to have it mounted high on the back. Like mounted vertical or horizontal on top of the tire rack. Then the rest of the tools are probably in the back anyway. Not to mention the spare tire itself.

I've also thought about mounting it behind the front seats, as low as possible. Out of sight & the weather. Might have to remove the base to do this.

That is a good point. I wonder if I'll ever run into that situation, with me needing to open my tire carrier to access my jack and all. I'm not going to change anything now but that is something to consider.

The foot is not on it on this picture but it fits on and ends up flush with the outside of the body. Just need to figure out a way to lock the tire carrier closed to secure the back doors and the jack.

tchoberg Mine is mounted on the swingout tire carrier and the foot sticks out a bit but I have never had a problem with the mount as it is very secure and does not rattle.

My latest challege is keeping up w/the demand. Every time I restock we're sold out within a week or two. I think the shop has a couple processes figured out though that will decrease production time, we'll see on the next run.
Thank you for AMERICAN MADE!!! Product , I know it will last

Thanks you ill just get the next size up
