Mounting Hi-Lift to Safety Devices roof rack

Hello-

I am trying to figure out the best method for mounting a 48" Hi-Lift jack to a SD roof rack.

I contacted ECR and SD, and havent had much luck finding a mounting system that would work.

If anyone is running this set up, could you tell me how you did it?

Thanks!!

Steve

There isn't really any production item for that.
What folks do is adapt some of the many Jeep/Toyota/ Universal mounts to the tubes on the SD rack with a little fabrication.

That or the Hi-Lift can be mounted on a tire carrier or ?

Thanks~

I am researching all of these, I appreciate the prompt feedback from you all.

I know alot of folks mount them on the hood too....I have responded to a few too many car accidents in my Law Enforcement career to be comfortable with the having a 40lb chunk of metal and face level....I'm nervous that the brackets would snap on impact and Id have a face lift compliments of Hi-Lift.

Thank you again- most appreciated.

Sorry, probably should have mentioned that I got them at EE. I dont believe that they carry them any longer. Mine have been off of the truck for a few years and they need to be refurbed a little, but I would let them go for $30 + S&H if anyone was interested.

Steve if i was going to mount a High Lift I think i would use something that bolts to the tire carrier it is a pain getting the HL off the roof rack.

I think charles G has a SG mount solution that could be replicated

I agree a spare tire carrier would be ideal...my spare tire is already oversized (34") and if I went that route I should beef up the tire carrier w/ a swing away to reduce strain on the hinges.

If there's a way to get the weight of a hilift lower down on the truck, you might consider it. I'm about to move mine off of the rack (on a disco, but the lesson is the same) as the difference in body lean is noticable between having it on the rack and off.
