    Just picked up a 48" hi lift jack with mounting brackets from 4wheel parts and the guy gave me a free daystar handle holder. How about some pics of where you guys mount your jacks. Thanks.

    Here's how I have mine. I need to extend the "pushers" a little to clear the jack if I have to push someone. The brackets can be bought. I got mine from a buddy of mine and don't know where he got them.

    Nope, but I will try to get some.

    I made it out of a door hinge, 1 body lift bed spacer, and some scrap steel. Total cost = $0

    Those brackets are made by Con-Ferr. They went out of business and Off-Road Unlimited picked up some of their line. I haven't seen them out yet, so e-Bay is the only way I know. That's where I got mine. I'm trying to figure out where to put my brackets in the bed. I have a 60" X-treme to mount. Glad this post came up!

    Post them pics!

    Happy New Year! [​IMG]

    I might mount the jack on one of the wheel wells in the back, kinda where the stock spare tire bracket is. I wanted to mount it on the front bumper, but I don't think it will work with the brackets I have.

    budget mount

    Due to the massive amount of salt the State O' Maine puts on the roads I mount mine inside the truck as well. My mounting system cost $0.00. I'm going to replace the 16ga straps with 0.125x1in bar eventually though. But it works quite well as-is:

    60" highlift

    [​IMG]

    Never had any complaints from passengers riding in the back seat. Personally i don't like storing it outside. It gets crapped up and hard to operate. I know one guy that has his mounted on the front bumper and he can't even get it off now.

    new jack, eh loafer :wink1:?? i like where loafer has his mounted, pretty close to what ill do to mine. if you still have all your interior panels and stuff you can pretty easily do a little fab to make mounts that stick out farther and look really good, too.

    I got the little kit from highlift that includes the locking portion and a hanger tab for one of the holes in the base. This is a pic of the kit:

    AND to all you haters, I've used this jack 3 or 4 times for recovery. :tongue1: This is just an example of how nice it can stay if you store it in a good location! :D
