Tyler, I used 3"X5" 3/16 plates (I think) with four 1 3/4" U bolts.

Thanks Rick

Looks Good, I meet a guy who had his jack mounted that way, the only problem he had was it liked to grab onto tree branches.

I agree! That's my only fear is if it catches anything but then we don't have much trees where we wheel so my only concern is rocks but never got close to a rock that big.

I mounted my highlift horizontally in the load bed, a 4" just fits in a fore/aft position and keeps the C of G lower.
