what size? 48"?

I usually leave mine at home unless I'm going on the trail - mounted in the back on a rack was best for me.

Make sure it's lubricated and you work the action periodically - they will get rusted up (especially the climbing pin springs).

Yeah it's a 48. I'll probably grease the crap out of it. Leaving it home isn't an option at the moment because I'm moving. Also the reason I can't just throw it in the back.

Mine has been mounted on my hood. I like the look but unfortunately mine has rusted pretty bad.

I've seen a few other guys who have done it as well. I like the look of it a lot.

I mounted mine on the hood. I got the mounting brackets and hardware off eBay. Later found out they're made by a member of jeepforum.com. It looks good to me and it's out of the way.

I think we have a winner.
That's just great.
What'd you do grind out clearance in your handle keeper for the wrench?

Same here. I lube it once a week and always keep a pad lock on it.

I definitely like the tire stop mount. Going to modify it to sit up higher I think. Definitely going to use a padlock also.

I mounted mine on my tuffy box, behind the rear seat to keep it secured, locked, and out of the elements. I have a bracket built on my swing out tire carrier too but my rear glass hits the hi lift when the hard top is on.

gotta say, after having one on my jeep for quite a long time (stored behind rear seat) I found that it was taking up valuable space and made way to much noise so I depositied it into the nearest corner of my garage for safe keeping. If I anticipate getting into the wild stuff, it is easy enough to put back in the jeep, but for DD, it was not someing I felt I needed to lug around.

Do you go off-road with it like that? Looks like it would rip the backside of your jeep off the first hill you go over when the bottom drags. Just wondering... Be careful.

Good to hear. I like when they're mounted in that location.

What kind of plate and bolts are we talking about here?
I have a hood mount right now but really would rather not have it on the hood of my car especially during the snowy seasons

Two muffler clamps for about $8.00 and the jack is in out of the weather.
I don't run a back seat so I don't know if it will interfere.

Pics were taken prior to paint job. Jack is mounted high enough so that I can slide a couple large plastic boxes in under it.

Hardtop keeps it safe from evildoers.

Good Luck, L.M.

I just bought some aluminum square stock from Lowe's and made my hood brackets. I'm still deciding if I like the look and if I want to leave it on the hood when the snow flies. Only draw back to my design is you cannot open the hood fully when the jack is on. Might remake some new brackets to allow the hood to open..

I should've thought of that earlier... I'll rethink my decision and either make the mount stronger or move the jack elsewhere.
