Hijack tire jack mounting locations ?

Hey i was wondering if has anyone has any ideas where to mount a hijack tire jack. I would like to put it by my spare tire but i am open to suggestions.

I'm not into welding or drilling, just something simple.

I have a 2 door soft top. I did see one where you mount it to the rear roll cage bar but it looks like you can't put the top down then. Thanks in advance for your help !

Oh also,anyone know of a good portable air compressor with out costing some major coin ? I would like to get the one that clamps directly to the battery for power . I plan to do some beach driving next month. Thanks again !

You need to look around..there are several aftermarket mounting systems as well as lots of do it yourselfers. My favorite is the hood hinge mount.

I have the 4dr and I mount mine inside using the same 4XRAC

It really should be kept inside !!

I have a body lift on mine, so i was able to lay it above the rear bumper and below the spare tire. I just used a cable lock and a hard rubber bungee cord to hold it in place. The tail gate still opens and it moved the weight to the back of the jeep.

This one mounts it to the rollbar in the back.
Kind of expensive for what it does. A resourceful person could rig it up themselves from a trip to a hardware store.

I use to have it mounted with two U-bolts around my front bumper. Total cost $5. But I figured I needed it locked so I bought the cable lock instead and laid it on top of my rear factory bumper. Wrapped the cable lock around the jeep frame and its not going anywhere now. Body lift required if you have a 35inch spare tire.

Are we talking 48" or 60"?

And it seems like you're not too familiar with the product since you're calling it a hijack...
...I'd suggest taking a lesson from somebody that really knows how to use one. Overland Experts has a comprehensive course; I think that Bruce might even have just a Hi-Lift video.
Used incorrectly, a Hi-Lift is more of a booby trap than a tool. That said, I'd never have a 48" for a JK.

Just never let go of it unless it's secure and never put your head in the line of fire.
