Hi-Lift mount

I contacted Kyle over at Rover Solutions about making mounts similar to the ones @ EE that mount on a Safari Gard brushguard. I like the idea of mounting my Hi-Lift on the brushguard but don't want to drill into it like others have done. I am thinking the concept would be the same as the roofrack mounts pictured but would utilize a larger diameter clamp.

If anyone else is interested let me know and I will work with Kyle for the final design and pricing.

I'm interested. I've been looking for a solution to mount my Hi-Lift on top of my ARB Bull bar that didn't involve drilling or welding. Keep me informed.

On another note, Joe I know your area quite well since I'm a class of '92 Anteater For those of you who don't know the Anteater is the mascot of the University of California Irvine.

And they don't rust like those cheezy mounts EE has with the fake "Zink" coating.

Dave, Thanks for the tip on the roll cage brackets. Why not them? Well I guess since I didn't know they existed. Roll cage brackets...It's amazing how the right key words change the result of a google search. Thanks.

If anyone wants a set, let me know. I have one pair & I'll deal on price. They come anodized purple and were sized to fit over the center, thicker tubes of the NAS guard.

Is that the stock brush guard you are speaking of? I'd be interested! I won't be able to get an aftermarket bumper for a while.

Has anyone used the Coleman racing mounts as a base for a roof rack? I have a 1994 ST and am playing with a custom roof mounted rack (i.e. the design is still in my head). One of my stumbling blocks has been the way to mount a basket to the roll cage. These seem great but a few questions:
1. What is the approximate diameter of the top screw area (I need a 3 inch riser to have the basket
clear the roll bar behind the seats.
2. Strength becomes an issue then. Any thoughts?

And Joe, great link. Key to everything is knowing/finding what is out there. Thanks

Yup. Just be careful when you clamp them down. They can grab your paint if your not careful. According to coleman, you can sand, etch, and repaint them whatever you want in an afternoon. I was going to black.

Paul,

I wouldn't use these for a rack. When you get them you'll see why. They're nice for mounting something like a highlift, but I'd be very leary of them for use in a rack.
