Re: Alternative to Hi-Lift Jack?
Hey man, here is a idea to mount your jack. I use a stock rim for a spare, but I imagine any spoke wheel will work. I got a u-bolt for a spring and layed it horizontaly in the rim. Used one spoke to "hook" the u-bolt around. The two studs sticking out past the tire, you insert through 2 holes in the "stem" of the jack. I then used a spacer on each bolt and left the studs long to make hanging the jack easier. I also fabricated a handle mount for it. Took a piece of old steel, bent it into a L shape. Drilled a hole and mounted it to the u-bolt. The jack now is mounted vertically on the spare tire. I hope I have explained it good enough for you. If you have access to a fax machine, email me with a fax number for you, I can draw it on paper and fax it to you.
Hope this helps...
I don't get the credit, I copyed a fellow zuker. I did make the handle restraint though....
Do unto others as you want done to you!
If you pack it in, pack it out!
