Creative ways to mount a 60\" High lift?

Just wondering if anyone has devised a way? I'm thinking about running it along the side of my truck...

In my experiance they are getting to be unsafe at 48" (Tippy)carry a ratchet strap and tie the axle to the frame if you need to change a wheel/lift it up. ALOT safer that way in my mind. If you want a 60" just don't jack up the truck around me.

The most creative way I can think of is





















Sell IT
and buy a 48" LOL

Get brave here fellas... It doesn't need to get max'd out. Granted 5' is a lot, but not that bad. If it is used smart it's okay.

No need to sell then. I'll hang on to my near new (used maybe 3 times) 48". I was thinking this would be a necessity with YJ's. But I'll go the ratchet route like Glenn suggested.

FYI You can just buy the new parts to make ANY lenght Hilift
Direct from the company. quick shipping and good prices. I think it was 20.00 or so for a replacment after I bent the
tower on mine. (Don't ask.) I bought a 36" first (Brain dump and then reordered a 60" (Over kill) and just cut it down to
48" after I woke up. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I had the same sort of "Issues" with M/L so I had the epithiny about the strap.. Duh.
