    I received the jack and trail axe today. I couldn't be happier. They're both fantastic quality and look great. I'm sure I can find some place to mount the axe.

    But....here's my question. The jack. Originally I was going to mount it on the back of the sport cage. But now that I see it's all black. I'm thinking about mounting on the hood. I'm not crazy about putting 25 plus pounds up there. But with my crystal granite color, the black would give it a cool look. Like Jeep Bling. Lol.

    So, I'd like your guys opinions. Where would you mount it. I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    Given that mine was stolen from the back, I would mount it inside. That being said, I see a lot of them mounted on hoods. Personally, I think it takes away too much of my outward visibility in that spot.

    Thanks Chris. You came to mind when I thought about mounting on the cage. This jack is sweet and I sure don't want see it get stolen. I see numerous rigs with them on the hood too. Some look nice. Some dont. Another negitive. Have to relocate the windshield washers.

    Thanks dude. You make good points.

    I'm with Chris. Mount it inside out of sight if you can do so safely.

    Yeah, I think that's what I'm going to do. Hi-Lift and Quadratec make mounting kits for the rear of the sport cage. Both a little more cash that I have right now. Their just a couple u-bolts and a bracket. I'm pretty sure I can make some thing that would look good, and be secure so that I don't loss it when I'm running topless.

    Thanks guys. You swayed me. I should have it done this weekend. I'll post pics when I have it mounted.

    Ok, Heres the mount of the Hi-Lift Jack. I'm not really happy with it. It's pretty much a temporary mount. I'm either going to have to buy factory made kits, or go back to Home Depot and look around some more at brackets and such. Picked up a couple u-bolts with brackets, extra nuts, and wing nuts. My concept worked. But I have to refine it. Less than 20 bucks at this point. If I feel it's going to cost to much more. I'LL just save up to getc the factory mounts.

    Oh......Also finally saved up enough cash to get an alignment. Finally wheeling trouble free.

    Hilift is making a nice mount for the Jeeps now. Not sure how much they are, but you should check into those.

    Quadratec has several. Theirs and Hi Lifts. 80 bucks plus for a couple u-bolts and aluminum brackets. Considering starting a Go Fund Me thread for one and other "Jeep stuff" I'd like to pick up. Sucks...need to keep the water and electric in the house. Lol.

    Donations accepted at...........

    All kidding aside. I love the jack, I hope I never have to use it. Lol . But I did need one since I lifted my JK. Still can't beleive I won it. My install at this point works. Being a perfectionist sucks at times. Just need to tweak my install kit.

    Sadly, we have had people start go fund me threads for mods, credit card debit, etc. We generally remove the threads, and member when they do that. I know you were joking, but incase someone thinks its a good idea......

    Chris4x4. Yes, of coarse I was (JK) just kidding. And seriously. People Crack me up. Posting threads for financial help. Some people are just F'ed in the head to think people would actually help when they have their own addiction.

    aggrex. How do you think I came up with the cash to do the mods I did to my addiction. I have a sports autographs collection. I've been selling off some of it for the cash. Considering selling a kidney now. Lol. BTW....think I could borrow some of that. Lol. And your knife doesn't scare me. I have a Smittybilt Trail Axe bigger than that.
