I have one by Safari Guard that I like, but I don't think you can get them anymore. Should be pretty easy to make though. They look like this

Thanks for the responses.

Understand the points made.

Not too afraid it will hit anything as it's pretty high up and the tire is a bit back.....so the departure angle should be minimally affected.

I've got a Rockware bumper and tire carrier. I would NOT do this if the tire was mounted to the door or the body. Probably best would be the front bumper or bull bar.

Does anyone have a lead on a body/bumper mounted system?

After searching for a SG one to no avail, I got that one made by hi lift.



No complaints so far. Pretty sturdy.
Good chance down the road I will be getting a rockware rear tire carrier with hi lift mount. So for now, when I'm not running with my roofrack it will do just fine.

I have a SG one.
The SG one didn't affect departure at all. It sits up high enough depending on where you mount it.
It's ok but I would prefer a tire carrier/gas/hi lift combo.

I had a similar one on my old 90. was a right royal PITA....

if you reversed into anything (not that i did often though) you could bend the shaft of the jack; off roading through deep gullies would catch the bottom of the jack and bend it or break the mount.

But the worst thing... was all the road dirt that sprayed up onto the jack, so when you dod want to use it, it was covered in crap and the linkage would jam up.

spray it in oil or WD40? even more crap sticks to it then!

i now keep it inside my truck... much better! less chance of getting stolen too.

Until recently I had my hilift across the top of a 'shrockworks' rear tire carrier.

PITA is right! Cost two sets of liftgate struts from family slamming the carrier shut with the lift gate open. Had 3 stiches in my eyebrow from walking around the back of the truck with the gate open. Only then did I move the jack forward to the top of the Rockware bumper brush guard!

x3 - maybe not as quick as an outside mount to get it out but then again I haven't had to use it much at all.

Get 4 bolts with wingnuts and use the base as a plate to sandwich the roll bar. I then made another plate for the other side.

I had one of mine mounted on the spare on one of my Disco's using a bracket I made (it's not difficult to make a locking bracket if you have a welder). I took it off when the top of my jack hit something and bent the bar.

I found one you might like. Should fit your rear wheel just fine.
