ORFab tire carrier HiLift mount?

What parts are needed to mount my HiLift on my rear ORFab tire carrier? I currently have the roll bar mount but realize in the summer it will interfere with the soft top when it's down. I want to go to the ORFab but cant find the hardware requirements anywhere...

Mine came with the threaded stud and I think 2 wing nuts. I threw out the 2 wing nuts and use 4 regular nuts. I torque the nuts down on each other so that it will take some effort and a good wrench if someone decides they want my jack. I also used 4 large washers.

I just used normal bolts with two washers. figure most theives don't run around with a wrench in their pocket. wingnuts are just to easy to remove. Don't forget a touch of thread lubricant to make life easier down the road to get the bolts out.

works great, not a squeak or rattle from it all winter long.
