    I'm trying to get a few ideas. I've ordered a 48" one.

    No pic, but I mounted my 60" Hi-Lift on the inside of the right bed side. It works very well for me and keeps it fairly clean and accessible.

    Click the link to my web site & go to the custom storage page. The pics are kind of crappy (I took them before I got my digital camara so I used my daughter's Barbie camara) I will take some new ones in the AM and repost them. If you click on the link for the drawings they are all clear and I included the measurements I used for my Jimmy. One note, I bought a 60" jack so I left the door off on the L/H side. It would not have opened without removing the jack. The way I have it set up also makes a good mounting place for my axe. Like I said I will take better pics tomorrow so check in the PM.

    People are scared Rene cause they think it's some kind of Mad Max, post-Apocalyptic weapon [​IMG].

    Re: Where have ya\'ll mounted your hi-lift jacks?

    I used to hang it off the rear bumper but a year of winter driving left it kind of rusty so now I am going to fab up some mounts and mount it to the rollbar inside, since I have a soft top, I can just roll up the side and gain access.

    Hey John, whatever gets 'em to move over or let me in[​IMG] I think mostly people figure its big, heavy and it doesn't look like I have anything to lose.[​IMG]

    On the rear bumper. There are pics on my site. I am getting a Con-Ferr rack and I am going to move it up there. I plan on getting a 60" later and have no idea where it is going!
