I want to mount my jack on my hood. I am worried it will rust if it is on there all the time. Anyone have any issues with that or done anything to protect the jack from rusting? I have seen the covers that cover the mechanism but I am worried about the entire jack

I've had mine on there for about a year now and nothing. Mechanism works fine. I shoot some spray paint on the shaft part after each time I use it though just to keep it looking pretty

I use the neoprene cover on mine and don't have issues. I oil it regularly since it is still somewhat exposed to the elements. The rest of the jack should be protected by paint and if you scuff or chip the paint, then just hit it with a rattle can.

I also regularly oil my padlock.

I also have the neoprene sleeve on mine and have yet to have any issues. A shot of lube every so often never hurts.
