    I just got my hi-lift jack yesterday and I'm looking for a good spot to mount it. I have the stock rear bumper and one of those typical winch bumpers up front. I carry lots of tools, tow straps, chains, shovel 39.5 TSL, etc. If you've got any ideas my ears are open. Well actually my eyes cause I'll be reading them! Ha Ha!

    You can build a mount it somehow on your winch bumper up front or you can build a bracket on the inside bed and mount it there.

    Or you can get a tire/jack carrier like mine and be done with it. WARNING though: If you leave it in the weather, it will rust! Mine is getting pretty bad.

    I don't have any pics, but i mounted mine on the top of my wheel well inside. I mounted a couple of L brackets so they looked like _| |_ , (did that two times) so that the shaft of the hi-lift fits in between. I put the base behind the wheel well hanging down and then ran the shaft forward. I used two bolts to go through the L brackets so that it would hold the hi-lift in place.

    Thanks but not for what you said you paid! I love it but not that much! And well lets see it's on a truck it's going to get wet! So I suggest you get some bed liner material and spray it with that and then use the rest on the inside of my K5! Ha Ha!

    I made up a couple of 3" by 4" plates and wleded a 9/32 bolt onto them. On one of the plates I welded a washer part way up the bolt to back against the beam of the jackall. This keeps the top of the jack out as far ar the bottom of the jack. A couple of bolts or heavy screws through the bed side of the blaze, slide the jackall onto the bolts and voila! An under the rail secure jackall mount. You could also drill a hole in the bolt to put a lock on it too.

    I bolt mine to the side rail with two bolts through the jack, then made a bracket to hold the back up. It works great. When I rolled my truck 6 times it didnt move a inch. You want to make sure it will stay there no matter what. This was the best place I could think of. I have the 60" Jack and it fits on the rail with no problems.

    I mounted mine in the inside of my bed using 2" bracketing and wing nuts, stayed dry and even built a lock for when my top is off.

    I mounted mine to the inside of my tail gate. I have pics if anyone wants them.......It fits perfectly and does not interfere with anything.

    I have had it on there for about 2 years. It has been bounced around Moab twice, 21 road twice and rolled once. The only real wear I have seen is from me tightening the nuts too tight. Other than that, it has held up very well.

    I mounted mine where the back seat USED to be, just got some longer bolts and used the hinge plate holes, leave a 3/4 wrench in the center console and its ready and clean when you need it.
