Jeep Swag Hi-Lift Accessory Mounts.

I had a quite a few hiccups in getting these, but, Brett did work through the issues and here they are finally! Looks like i'll be axe and shovel shopping this weekend.



I will also be installing the second generation evap canister relocation kit so be expecting a mini review on that as well.

Went and got some tools for these things. So far, first impression is positive. In my case, this is a stellar way to store an axe and shovel inside the vehicle.

I have heard some people on FB whining on Joe from Teraflex' wall about how inconvenient it would be to remove the accessories to gain access to their Hi-Lift. Really? Four wing nuts with incorporated washers is too hard? For the extra 30-60 seconds it would take to remove this stuff, the utility is well worth it. This is awesome for the two door guys for sure.

Unless you're using your Hi-lift as a winch, you might already need the shovel anyways and even if not, the whole thing comes free with 4 wing nuts as a single item.

I dig it!

Newp! That's my home grown mount. The accessory bracket is what this is about. I'm one of his testers, I received the reduced price to see if it would work in this configuration, which it does perfectly. It's a nice little add on. If you want to do the same thing, come on over one weekend, we'll get you set up if you're interested. It was cheap and easy.

PM me and i'll pick up the right clamps and hardware ahead of time and get it all cleaned and coated, etc. The most time consuming part is coating the clamps. Let me know.

For those with 2dr's like mine, I mounted my Hi Lift up high on the rear bar using River Raider Hi Lift mounts. http://www.riverraider.com/store/JK-...ear-Jack-Mount

The instructions call for it to be mounted on the lower holes/bungs for the seat belts (you tap it with a 1/2" tap provided), then install the brackets. It was in my way most of the time, so I used the upper bung holes and tapped them. Works well and keeps the jack and accessories out of the elements.

With the rear seat in, I still have the usable space in back. Now with the JeepSwag accessory mount, http://www.jeepswag.com/Jack_Hi-Lift...ars/index.html I can carry my Axe/Shovel out of harms way.

This is by far, one of the best mounts for an axe/shovel combo.

Yup, they are. Great product. You'll notice I didn't opt for the wing nut/washer, only have standard nuts/washers. May have to rethink this.

I've use this with my soft top also, but yes, you do have to remove them when you need to lower/raise the top. Not the ideal situation, but it works for me and keeps them out of the elements/mud/dust/rain... unless I'm topless, of course.

I think the problem is that the wing nuts are not obvious in the photos, so it appears that one would need to grab a wrench or ratchet/socket out of the toolbag to be able to remove the tool holder. Using wingnuts with attached washers makes a lot more sense in terms of ease-of-use, though I personally would replace these with threaded t-handles so I could torque them down more tightly but still have fast access.

I have to honestly say that I've never needed to use a shovel on the trail, and finally stopped carrying anything more than a good folding e-tool. And I only carry a hand axe and a folding saw because of lack of mounting options for a full-size axe. But since this provides a nice clean and secure inside mounting option it might be a good idea. I definitely like it mounted this way inside than flapping away off the tailgate/tire-swing as I've seen in other photos. It might be enough to make me reconsider carrying both a shovel and full-size axe.

BTW, what is up with how clean and organized your Jeep is anyway? I thought you wheeled that thing? The only other person I know who wheels and has a Jeep that clean is FunJester, and that's because his wife washes it for him. You're not flying Mrs. Jester out to Az to detail your Jeep, are you?

Both of you, but yeah, JR's shit is way too clean. Like he's at a photo shoot to model Jeep accessories.

Well, I read it...

Anyway, it looks very nice and tidy. However, I still stand by what I said in the other thread...
