I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

I just got this monster via UPS, and for those of you who have one, you know it weighs A LOT!!! I know that people mount it on the bumper, but I would like to hear some other suggestions.

Mount it anywhere you like. I put the TJ's on the front bumper, but it can be placed most anywhere.




Also do a search on the subject, we covered it a long time ago.

Re: I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

I got one for x-mas and I made a bracket so that it was mounted behind the rear seat and crosses between the rear mounts for the roll bar. It is fairly hidden from view and out of the elements. The elements are the big problem here in New Brunswick because of all the salt. If it is mounted on the bumper it has to be locked on.

Re: I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

With one little modification the seat-belt to roll-bar attachment I fabed up the attachment would secure a High Lift Jack to a rollbar, in almost orentation you'd like it mounted. It's up to you. The best part is that it's very, very inexpensive.

Take a look at:

All you'd have to do is substitute a bolt for the nut, weld it in and you've got a great mount. Then drill the bolt for a lock or modify the plate for a lock. It should work just fine.

Safe Jeepin'

Re: I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

If you mount that thing inside the vehicle you sure as he!! better fasten it with something other than bungee cords! That thing is heavy and will KILL someone in a rollover. I made a bracket for above my winch, I'll post a pic later.

Re: I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

I mounted mine behind the front seats, using the rollbar as an attaching point. Got two 1/2" grade 8 bolts, welded them securley to the roll-bar tubing (one on each side), and then just slide the notches in the Hi-Lift over the bolts. To make sure it stays there, I used nice, large wing-nuts that lock it in place, but can be easily be removed without any tools when I need to use it. The picture I have of the setup is pretty bad, but maybe you can make something out of it.

Re: I need suggestions on where to mount Hi-Lift

Here's a pic, used about a dollars worth of angle iron and a few bolts. BTW, I've been carrying it on the outside of my Jeep for 15 years, just give it a shot of WD once in a while. Weather doesn't seem to bother Hi-lifts, and its nice not to have that thing on the inside of the vehicle, especially something as small as a CJ.
