    Where can I buy some mounting brackets for a Hi-Lift jack for my stock front bumper?

    Well if you have the older style bumper hit the local parts store and get a hood pin kit. Then go over to the help section and buy some Shock absorber bushings and a couple of large flat washers. On the push bar up rights you can put the hood pins on the top then put down a shock bushing then highlift then bushing, the washer, then hood pin. Total cost of $10 bucks if you get the cheap hood pins :) I have one of the real highlift mounts. the only time I used it on my 79 was when I wasn't wheeling. WHen I wheeled the Hi Lift was on the front bumper and easy to get too.

    I saw a couple of lockable mounts in my Summit magazine. Do ya'll know if these will mount to the bumper? (I know they can be modified to fit, but I was wondering about a straight fit)

    I bought that mount dealy when I bought my Hi-lift at Summit, its called a loc-rac.Its kinda flimsy and the padlock is TINY to go thru the bolt for the wingnut! Probably better off to make your own out of heavier hardware store stuff or find a good welder.
