Jeepswag Hi lift Mount

I just installed this Hi lift mount and I'm very happy with it. I wanted a mount that kept the Hi lift out of the elements but did not take up any cargo space. I also wanted a mounting solution that did not make access into the rear cargo area difficult. This mount is a perfect fit for me.

The install is very straight forward.

Time to complete: approximately 1 beer

1. Open beer
2. Unzip roll bar cover to access the mounting area. (See pic)
3. Tap the holes on both sides with 1/2"X20 tap.
4. Mount Brackets
5. Install Hi lift
6. Zip up cover as best as you can.
7. Finish your beer while checking out the finished product.

Notes: Make sure to take your time with the tap and keep it properly lubed.

The kit comes with bolts for mounting the jack to the mounts. I grabbed some 1/2-30x1" coarse thread bolts and wingnuts to match in order to make it easier to remove and reinstall.

The jack does not block visibility in the rear view mirror. Brett does note that the jack has to be removed when putting the soft top up or down.

Looking good. How hard would that be to remove with the hardtop on?

I'm sure it would be a tighter fit but definitely doable especially when using wingnuts instead of the supplied hardware. The base side mount is flush so the jack will come right down when the bolts are removed.

does this fit with the top up? I read it needs removed when putting top up or down, but does it fit ok with top in the up position?

PhrogMech46 - Thanks for the write-up.

I've made some solid progress on the accessory bars. This will let you mount a shovel and axe to the hi-lift.

Yes, this fits with all top configurations, hard top, soft top, bikini. The Jack must be removed from the mount brackets to put the soft top up or down.

Not that hard to remove, I installed the mount with the top on, tapping it took a little longer but not that big of a deal. The jack acts as a piece of unistrut to mount the quick-fists to. Had a 5lb in there for a while, had to swap it to the other side when I put the 10lb bottle back in, the regulator hit the jack. I later added the dirtbagz, nice for keeping a shit-ton of gear.
