I have mine on the hood and have no issues. Make sure the handle is facing the front of the jeep. Otherwise it will block the spray.Hi All,
Mounted hi lift jack on hood of jku today, looks great but now when I spray windshield washer fluid it only hits my jack. Anyone have a solution for this since I have to clean windshield daily
i bought my mount off ebay... well worth it IMHODid you use plastic tubing or aluminum? For now it seems that it works OK just by flipping jack . but if I need more will probably take your route
Same guy I got mine from. He actually called me when he shipped them because his eBay wouldn't let him load a tracking number. Great dude. Great product.i bought my mount off ebay... well worth it IMHO

Do you have the Jack covered? The few times I've left mine on the back rack when I get back from the trail, I start to see rust w a couple rains...I like the hood mount also. I had the same problem. I made a two piece bracket out of .032" aluminum and drilled holes for the oem pisser to fit, along with the hold down bolts. Afixed that to the hilift with a small hose extension. Used wing nuts for easy access in the rare event I need to take the jack off. Viola! Works like a charm. Haven't heard or seen any relocation kits around, but maybe there is. Turning mine around doesn't change that clearance either.
Btw, having the jack on the hood is perfect. Not the easiest to get off, but def managable. In 3 years up there, it has only been off during oil changes for a lube. I like the way it looks and get tons of compliments. Its out of the way.
I keep wd-40 on hand at all times tooI have a cover over the base (foam). I do get small streaks of rust from rain that comes from the inside of the handle and drips onto the hood occasianally, but wipes right off with my hand. Never a stain tho. Believe it or not, she gets lots of wax at least twice a year which may help.
