Where Do You Have Your High Lift Jack Mounted?

I'm trying to make final decision on where to mount my Hi Lift jack...
Right now, I cable it down on top of my rear mounted 'Jerry' cans, and I'm trying to decide where it would be best to permanently mount the darn thing!

Pictures are worth a thousand words here... If you can get a picture on the net!

Horizontal, almost on the floor, and between the legs of the stock cage hoop. Weather is too hard on it to have it outside the jeep.

You don't say what your Jeep is but on my CJ7 I put a piece of 3/4" plywood behind the rear seat on top of the fender wells to create a semi secure area for tools etc.
on top of the plywood/fender I mounted the quick loc and high lift horizontally

How did I get sand THERE!

Before the full cage install it was mounted horizontally between the rear legs of the factory roll bar. Similar to the top picture. Now is is mounted to the cage just behind the front seats. As seen in the bottom picture. I also keep a long pry bar stuck in the handle of the hi-lift.

Mine is on the back bumper level with it. But it drags on the rocks in Moab. Ill need to move it. Ill mount it on the swing out carrier when I build it.

Right on the front, it's been there for over four years. That jack is probably 20+ years old and works fine. Every now and then, I give it a squirt of lube to keep it rust free, but it hasn't failed me yet.
