Build a Hi-Lift Jack mount.
What it does:
Where to put a Hi-Lift Jack on you stock Jeep? This will permit you to mount a Hi-Lift Jack inside your Jeep just behind the rear seat.
I decided to use the loop at the bottom of the driver’s side rear seat to support the base of the Jack:
And the passenger side roll bar to support the top of the Jack:
Here are the parts:
I took the two Lashing Straps that I purchased at Lowe’s and cut them down to 2’:
I then took the cut end:
And heated it with a match so it won’t fray:
I then cut 3.5” off a 2x4, and made a 1/4" deep by 1.5” wide channel on one of the 3.5” lengths and a small channel down the middle of the other side of the 3.5” length. This is a side view showing the two channels:
Here’s another view:
I then ran a cable tie behind the passenger side roll bar:
And attached the wood block to the roll bar:
I now placed the Jack in the rear with the foot up against the wall and the Jack up against the seat:
And the top of the Jack on top of the wood block with an old sock (to reduce rattling) between the Jack and the roll bar:
I then ran one strap through the loop on the bottom of the drivers side seat:
And the other strap through the top of the Jack, around the roll bar (keep it inside of the seat belt), and through one of the holes in the Jack:
All strapped in place:
Update: I added foam between the wood block/Jack/Bar which makes it easier to keep it from rattling on the trail:
