Has anyone used this farm Jack mount?

Was screwing around on eBay and found this:

Anyone ever buy one? 130 bucks is rape and I'll never get one. But just curious.

Around here that wouldn't last 2 minutes on the trail and would be ripped off taking your fender with it. Looks ok for the street but then why would you need a high-lift.

I had never seen them on a jeep before until I went to Jeep beach in Daytona a few weeks ago. There were quite a few jeeps that were running that setup or different brand. It just seems to be in a bad spot to me.

Yeah I didn't think it looked like a good idea either. Like I said, I was just curious since I had never seen one before.

"he FJ Mount’s low profile and slim design make it almost invisible"

HUH?

That thing is idiotic. Both the price and the location. Look like it prevents the door from opening all the way as well. I like how it keeps the top of the jack in the air so it can easily catch on something and cause insane havoc

I've seen a handyman go through the rear window and windshield of a pickup that hit a ditch so I'm all in favor of a GOOD bracket.
That doesn't make the grade.

Unless people in your area are ripping off their mirrors every 2 minutes on the trail there is no problem with that location.

That's funny. I agree, but no way I'd mount mine there. There is no good place for that big iron thing outside unless your rig is mostly for trail use. I might need it once in the next few years and I don't want it sticking out like a sore thumb forever.

My concern is when you are in off camber situations that it could drag into the side of hill or ravine. I used to catch my 50" light bar all the time so I removed it, this is further ahead and probably sticks up as high. Gives you less room for clearance in those situations.

Anybody installed U bolts on the roll bar where it goes through the tub in the back and attach the jack parallel to the back gate? You know 1 U bolt on the drivers side and 1 on the passenger side. The poor mans version of this -

I've seen them mounted with U-bolts before and it's worked just fine! I have mine on the tire carrier since it had a mount built in, but if it didn't I think across the roll bar is a good option.

Let me know if you have any questions!

This one makes more sense, it is up and out of the way.

As long as you don't have a soft top, if you do you have to remove the jack to lower the top.
