Hey JEEPN, Read This!

Can you post a pick of your Hi-Lift mount or describe it in a little more detail. I am interested in making one for my CJ.

Thanks,

P.S. What is stop sign channel?

TJ: Hi-lift mount made form stopsign channel. Believe it or not, it's a perfect fit. The groves in the channel exactly fit the grove in the high lift. I put some bolts through with locknuts, welded some nuts to T-handles made from pipe, and voila, instant rack, and lockable too. We have it mounted to the front of the TJ.

Re: Hey JEEPN, Read This!

I don't if the pic turned out, if not, let me know. Stopsign channel is the post a stopsign is mounted to at the end of a road. If you look at it, it has holes through it and is shaped kinda like a "U". I'm not advoacting cutting down stopsigns, I got mine from a local public works department. They are always replacing the channel from prople running them over. I used a section about 2.5' in length and drilled some holes in the side to mount to the bumper of the TJ. I used two bolts for mounting the hi-lift, but I put the bolts through the channel from the backside, then put some thin nuts on the front side to hold the bolt in place while the hi-lift wasn't on the jeep. Move the hi-lift back and forth a little until the holes in the jack line up with the bolts, then slide it on. You could use wing-nuts to hold the jack in place, but I welded some nuts to the inside of some pipe, then welded a "T" handle to the pipe. In essence I made a larger wing-nut with a hole in the middle, so it's easier to remove and crank down tighter. An added benefit, which we didn't realize until it was finished, was the tubing for the T-handles, when lined up, will allow a rod to pass through both at the same time. Put some holes in the end of the rod and throw a lock in the holes, instant locked hi-lift rack! I can draw up some plans, it'll take me a little time, but if anyone needs a more detailed description, E-mail me directly. I hope this helps and is easy to understand. I plan on putting this on the Scrambler as well, for now it's just on the TJ, the Scrambler is getting currently it's annual upgrade and maintenance.
