Hey there, I need some suggestions of where to mount my new high lift jack. I want to put it in the rear bumper (an aftermarket WARN bumper), but I want to do it without buying the mounting brackets. I don't mind drilling or buting some other hardware. I f any body has ant suggestions, let me know, thanks

I mounted my Hi-Lift on the hood hinges.
Jack and mount:


Mount by itself:


Things to thing about - I was worried about bending the jack if it was mounted low on the front or rear bumper, especially when off-roading.
One con about the hood hinge mount is that I can't lay the hood back against the windshield when I work under the hood. I really liked having all that space to move around when doing maintenance. I think if I did it again (and got as good a deal on the jack and mount -FREE!) then I would put it vertically behind the spare tire.

you could just lay it across your rear wheel wells in your trunk behind the cage... that way it never gets rained on so theres less rust

Azcat I fixed your hotlink image tags so your pics show up. Wink

I had my swing away built with tabs welded on and used a couple of SS brackets from there. Works fine for me. I would think a person could simply have bolted the tabs on too if they wanted.



I moved it to a 45 angle since that pic as I had another tab there and so it didn't interfere with my hard top rear window. But it should give you the idea. Several of the guys I wheel with mounted their's vertically instead which they like.





For me though it was about making it accessible without being in the way. Kizer's Toys by Troy bumper uses the front for the jack...which works really well, too. So if using the back doesn't work for you, maybe the front will?



I'm not exactly sure how you are going to mount it without a bracket of sorts though.

Hope that helps a little.
Wink
