Well, I just bought a 48" All-Cast (The red one) Hi-Lift! I also bought mounting hardware, but you won't find out where I mounted it until I do a write-up, so watch for that in the "Projects & Reviews" over the next couple days or so Wink

I held my breath so long I passed out. I cracked my head on the coffee table. I had to go to the hospital. I will be sending you the bill.

Here is my mounting solution. Clamps for a chain link fence and a few eye bolts.

For those of you who have never used a HiLift Jack before, let's just say, be careful, sometimes they can get nasty, don't let the handle ever be in a position it can rebound and smack you, because HiLift jacks are famous for that. I've used them around the farm enough, that I always treat them with respect. Keep the pin and spring oiled so it moves easy.

I'd suggest moving it up the roll bars about 6 - 8 inches, so it would be protected from rain by the safari cover. You'd have to hang it underneath, but visibility out your rear view mirror would be better. Just my 0.02, that's how I have mine.

I have a hard top that I run in the winter [all 3 months of it]. Putting the jack that high would prevent me from putting the hard top on. That and I pull the safari down a lot and it would probably get in the way.

Ditto what AD said... Never stand directly over the handle or leave the jack unattended.. If you are under a vehicle supported by a hi-lift have someone stand next to it and hold it.. They tend to lean and when it does it will come down hard and fast... If you are there you can grab it and slow it down ...Usually...

That being said.. I use mine all the time.. I love it and wouldnt know what to do without it..

I popped my HiLift cherry the first time I ever used one. Right up the side of my head during a bodylift angry
