    Easy enough, just make the lower bar as short as you need.

    You could even get a few of those rubber nubbs of a YJ tailgate, the ones that the OEM tire sits against, and bolt them onto your Cherokee's skin. That'd prevent even more rattling.

    good idea with the bolt but what I did is drill and tap the top of my reciever so when you put the insert in tighten down the butterfly screw and there's no more rattle.

    Would you have enough room on the inside (hatch side) to mount a high lift?

    Seems like a good spot and the spare would conceal it somewhat. If you put locking pins on it you would have it secured as well.

    I have a lock key set and a locking hitch pin aswell.
    Im not sure i want to look into trying to mount my highlift but its so hard to find somewhere out of the way right?
    I was thinking about trying to get it right on my tailgate but im not sure if the hood shocks will be able to handle it.

    On thing is for sure, I need to get it tied down along with my toolbox.

    I built on like that when I first got my Cherokee.

    Personally I threw it out as it was a PITA everytime I wanted into the hatch and never could I get rid of the rattles.

    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    Yeah, but im hoping the hole hinge design will make it easier to get in the hatch.
    Also for quieting the noise level i'm drilling 2 hole's in the side and top and mounting 2 M8 bolts with a washer welded to them, just incase it siezes up i can get a screw driver on there to pull em out.
