There's probably more if you need them, but here's one thread. Also, if you give up on inside mount there's an exterior rear mount made by Rugged Ridge that I have. No complaints and it's lockable. Plenty of other companies that make the same.

Yes, I have the 60" Hi-Lift. I used to mount it inside, across from rear roll bar to rear roll bar; basically right over the subwoofer on the right to the left side.

Now I mount it outside on the PSC rear bumper tire carrier.

Cheap DIY mounting kit....a couple of 3" U-bolts from the electrical dept at Home Depot, some metal straps that fit, and a couple of nuts/washers. Total Cost: $5.00. Just place your Hi-Lift behind the roll-bars, slide the U-Bolts through the holes, fasten with the metal straps and nuts/washers.

No, but when I get home later today, I'll set up the hi-lift in the old position and snap some photos and post them here for you.

Cool re:60" Hi-Lift



guy i got hi-lift from thew-in the 4XRac for free; i just used military spec [ 1300 lb breaking weight/ four on each XRAC] nylon zip ties and its so strong I can stand on the hi lift and jump up & down w/ top off... been on for three years ....it fit but i cut 4 inches off top of hi-lift just to not have to finesse it into hardtop as much.....but that is not required.....just convenience......that f*cker is too long to be useful at 60" so I gotta 56" one.....lol!

re: 60" Hi-Lift

I have the whole "Bestop Bikini/Duster/Windjammer " thing and it is fine; I would not be able to speak about the softtop hardware and if it would butt into the base; I can tell you that I take off the base sometimes on that X-Treme ( who names this sh1t?) Hi-Lift and it shortens it quite a bit....I would imagine you could make it work...
if not, get out the grinder cutting disk and hack off a few inches...i will attest to that darn hardened steel being the toughest darn thing I have ever sliced with my grinder!
heres an older shot of my piggy with the soft bikini [email protected] displaying the jack pretty well, and you can see how base removal would free up an inch or two...I never touch it unless I need to use it.....the guy that had the ubolt mounting idea would work just as well, I imagine.....you'd have to re-attach the ubolts every time you used it tho...this solution just stays there ...the 4xrac is only like 40 bucks, I think....
