High Lift Mount for under $6. I've seen this a while back but after I saw Bch4x4Cop on our last trip bring it in and out with such ease I was hooked. I usually leave mine at camp but in the event anyone in our group needs to leave the trail and I need to carry it, this is the ticket for me. It does not get as dirty on the inside either. I've seen a few get hung up from lack of maintenance.

I usually write a detail on the installs instead of just posting the pics, but... Just buy two 2" muffler clamps and some extra nuts and your done. No need to explain on this one how I did it since the pictures pretty much tell the story.

What I like about all of this is that I do not lose my back seat, I still have the room in the back to carry my spare parts, etc. :good2:

Explain, explain. U could have at least touched up the red roll bar for the pics :good2:

P.S. This application will not work on a CJ with a back seat in it. Just wanted to clarify this in case someone went to the trouble & spent $ on two clamps :good2: .

P.S.S. Since we are on the topic of Hi-Lift Jacks I have noticed the hood mounted modifications & I have a question. Does the hood mounted modification (on the hood hinges) let the jack clear the windshield/metal of any part of the Jeep when the hood is leaned against the windshield?

I have my Hi-Lift mounted to the brackets on the hood and my hood will go back against the windshield with no problem(I think). Now that I think about it I will have to mount it to see.

I can understand this being a better and having a clean look but I could not find a way to have the bolt threads to stick out for the connection. I guess you can weld on the collar but then it would not be a 20 minute job and $6. Maybe I'm missing something...:scratch:

Let's just say that when you tighten the clamps, that high lift is not moving. I also could of used one wing nut to make it easier on the release but I want to make it harder for the thieves, I have an small old 1/2" wrench laying under the carpet in the back.

I'm going to have to touch up the tube with red to make Rollbar happy though. :baby:
