best spare/ hi lift carry

I was just out looking at my "new" 92 Sahara trying to find the best way to carry my high lift.
I thought about putting it a bunch of places.
What is the best place to mount a hi-lift on a YJ?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

I like inside the rear door across the fender wells. It can inhibit getting things in and out but out of the weather is good.

On the front bumper is ok, but you have to carry a can of lubricant.

Ya only go around once, best to enjoy it the first trip.

This is in a CJ, but it would work the same in a YJ.

Gotta carry a can of lubricant wherever you mount it...Just more of the lubricant if you mount it outside the Jeep. If you mount it on the front bumper where you are gonna dip it in the mud...Carry the 'industrial strength and size' can of lubricant.

I used 2 fence hangers on my roll cage, just above the rear fenders. Ran bolts through the Hi-lift upright then used a wing nut to secure...Done.

Hi-Lift also has a lockable mount. Can be mounted on the fender well just inside the tailgate.

A bad weekend of wheelin', is still a good weekend.

i think he is referring to the fence clamps that are used to secure a chain link fence to the galvanized pole. You clamp it around the roll cage instead, just use a longer bolt that will go through the holes on your hi-lift and then use a wing nut as he advised to secure the jack to the bolt. Here is a similar idea I found doing a google search

Thanks for all of your reples.
I think I'll trim and mount it behind the seats.
