High Lift Jack mount ... where?

Wife bought me a High lift jack for my birthday yesterday and it is sweet. [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

We found it @ Tractor Supply $44 for the good (red) one not stamped.

Only question is where to mount the huge thing. Any ideas? Where do / how have you guys mounted yours? Any pics would be nice.

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

Hulk..I have a hardtop and i have mine mounted behind my back seat. I have the back seat in because i Have two kids and often take them for rides in the "bouncy truck." The HI-lift just fits side to side in the back and i have it firmly bungeed down to the latch thing for the back seat. It doesn't budge. I also use it shove stuff in behind the seat and hold them still like extra brake fluid, kneepads, etc.

I keep thinking of mounting it outside someplace, but then it will get all rusty and sticks will get stuck in it when I am crashing down ATV trails in the woods. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

I made a deck out of 1x2's and 1/2 ply for just behind my back seat. It also encloses the storage
area back there so the tools are less likely to go missing. (out of sight, out of mind...) I covered it with
auto store auto carpet and used a 1/2" carrage bolt with a wing nut on the bottom side to secure the jack.

It's been there for over 2 years with no problems. pic attached.

Behind front seats with a bolt that goes through the rear fender well and bungee chords every where else (I've got a tool box back there.) BTW what size did you get? That'll make a difference.

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

if you did not get the large one mount it in the floor behind the front seats. i used what appears to body lift pucks to make it sit level...this all worked until i got the tuffy lock box. now i have it behind the rear wheel well and the tail gate. it works. but - if you got the BIG one than...good luck

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

I found the perfect place on my Tracker - under the hood, crosswise. Drilled holes through the splash panels near the strut towers. Made some big wingnuts to hold it down.

Clean and hidden.

Don't know if there's room in a Sammy, may have to cut off an inch or two.

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

You can see my Hi-Lift mounted along the bottom of my tire carrier. This keeps it out of the way and keeps the center of gravity low.



I used the Hi-Lift mounts bolted right to the tire carrier, with a wing nut on each end so the jack comes right off whenever it's needed.

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

Thanks for all the great Ideas, keep em coming.

I got the BIG one 51" from tip to tip. May need to take it back and get the smaller version.

Re: High Lift Jack mount ... where?

Just cut a foot off of it, probably easyer than going back to the shop.

If yours is new then fetch all the paint from the beam cause it makes them stick when you lower off.

Be sure its well fastened if you mount it inside, they do hurt when they hit you in the back of the neck.
