Best way to rear mount a Hi-Lift Jack?

I've searched around, seen a few pictures, mentions here and there, but was hoping to get best thinking on a rear mount onto a NAS110 (factory rear bumper, tire rack, etc.). I will be having a front bumper installed which accepts the hi lift but prefer the look of having it on the rear.
Thanks!

The best way is to find an old Safari Gard Hi-Lift adapter that works with the rear tire carrier.

I do have the ladder/roof rack on the vehicle, so was thinking the right hand side of the tire with a vertical mount. I'd definitely consider mounting it on the roof rack as well, but have a new one put on over the winter as well, so that remains an option as well, but still like the rear mount as first preference.
Thanks!

Jeff - sounds like we're in sync, insofar as solving for a good solution (you're far ahead on implementation!). I'd really like to find a solution to mount on the right side of the rear bumper and not have to do any major surgery higher up on the vehicle

Seems like bit of surgery would be necessary right? It could maybe sit on a cradle bolted to tub supports but there would have to be something supporting it above as well. Maybe drilling out some of the rivets at the capping would allow for that without too much effort.

This is pretty decent idea. It keeps it in close in and protected.

The biggest issue I see with the Kaymar style is that it hangs off past the tire, and with the length of the jack, alot of leverage (and damage) can occur if you hit something, snag it etc.

Yes I like that too, have seen a couple of others similarly done. looks like they have a tire rack designed for it, or have modded the rack to add the tray at the bottom and another attachment point above.

Jeff - What about a HL jack that mounts to the stock rear tire carrier on an ST in the locations of where I put the blue tape in the attached pic? I would be very interested in something like this if its sturdy, doesn't rattle, and simple. Also must not inhibit opening of rear door with tire mounted. Have you ever seen or made anything like this?

Jeff makes a really nice version too...

But, I have a safari gard hi lift carrier that works with the stock tire carrier. Mine is set up for the SW, so you would need to drill a hole to make it work on a st.

I don't want to mount it with the spare though mainly because I don't want it sticking out that far. I want it standing vertical to the right of the spare tire up close to the tire carrier horizontal bars.

I want it to look like in the attached pic!

Jeff, you interested in designing something like this?

Very much so. I don't have a factory tire carrier for a jig though. With all the aftermarket ones out there it would be good to come up with a universal solution.

Refresh your browser I just attached a pic of exactly what I am looking for (as far as location).

Wont you have issues with blocking your turn signal if you put it on the tire carrier where you have the tape?

I know you said no to the front but I have had mine there for a couple of years and I really like it. Its quick and easy to get at but out of the way the rest of the time. Doesn’t interfere with visibility or the hood and is set back from the front so it doesn’t catch on anything. Actually stays cleaner there than on the back as well for some reason. I had it inside for ages but it was a PITA to get at when I wanted it.

I just made a couple of simple brackets from some strut fittings and stainless hardware. I generally keep the base in the recovery box in the back and recently added a cover for the mechanism. I have a snake lock in case I have to park anywhere dicey.

In all the years out on trails I've only once seen a hi lift in use.
One of the simpler mounts is to add the crossmember bumperette as a footing and secure the top end.

Use mine now and again. That pic in the water with the yellow jeep ahead for example. The reason the base is on the jack in that pic is because it was used about half a mile before that pic to help change a flat on that jeep. The 48" High Lift that you can see on the back of his jeep wasn’t worth using as it was crusted up and rusty.

I would say that is a winner, but thoughts on the blocked turn signal?
