    JKU homemade HiLift mount

    Hi guys,

    Just waiting for the paint to dry on my new homemade bumper so I thought I'd show what's been keeping me busy.

    I saw a hilift mount from a company called Jeepswag and fell in love with them........but, I'm very cheap, so I figured I'd just save my money and make my own.
    Whipped these up in an afternoon and I think they turned out great. Jack is in there solid, I've hung my entire weight off them and wiggled around, just a bit of flex in the actual "i" beam of the jack itself!

    Thanks for looking and if anyone wants me to post a photo of my cardboard template (it'll get you close), just ask.

    Need better pics of the brackets and how they attach to the cage...I need to find a decent way to mount a "Smashy Smashy Face Breaker Finger Eater"...

    @ whiplash......thanks man, I've been wanting to do these for a while. I gave the bedliner you recommended a try and it came out pretty nice! Good call!

    @ Piratexpress1369a.....The turndown bar in the rear cargo area isn't that far from the back so I haven't had any problems getting to it yet....I'm also 6'4"........

    @ Jeff......I'll try to get out there later and grab some pics of the mounting stanchions.

    Does this interfere with the soft top brackets at all?

    it might, but I'm not sure....the one I copied is supposed to work with the factory soft top (you just have to remove the jack itself for each up and down of the top), but I don't have a soft top so I can't say for sure if mine does.

    This is for Jeff and anyone else who is interested. The picture shows the bracket mounting at the top of the angle bar of the roll cage. There is an existing M8(not 100%) bolt on each side at the top that is used to connect the rear part of the stock cage to the backseat area. It is the top bolt shown. Below, aft and angled out of it, there is an unthreaded stanchion that, happily, accepts a 1/2 x 20 tap. I threaded the hole (its the same one that the rear seatbelts attach to) with the hardtop on, with only a little difficulty.

    I then had to slice and bend the mating surface of the bracket to get it to fit on the holes properly, after that it was just a few heat-bends and voila, hi-lift mount.
