Safari Gard Hilift Mount

Mounts your hilift to your spare tire. Used but in good shape. What you see in the picture is what you'll get (you'll need washers and wingnuts for the hilift and a new hitch pin for the tube).

Call it $75, I'll box and ship for $10 if you need.

I was thinking the same thing -- it's not a complicated piece of engineering and I'd think any machine shop could replicate it relatively easily.

The only issue I see is how would you lock the jack on there without using a generic cable lock? Then again, I wouldn't keep my jack on there all the time.

Are you going to make some of these? If so I'll back off.



Since the original item sold I thought it ok to hijack. If anyone has a problem I'll start another thread.

I was thinking of having some of these developed and wanted to ask some questions first.

1) Why are these two separate pieces?
2) What is special about the angle and are there different angles drilled into the pipe?
3) Any other features that people would like to see on this?

Any input would be appreciated.

Jeff

I believe they are two piece so that you can install the tire over it. If it weren't the rim would not fit over the piece of flat bar that the high lift attaches to.

The piece with the lug pattern actually goes behind the tire, the tire is installed and the pipe protrudes through the center of the rim. The outer part pins on and your high lift attaches from there.

Hope this helps. Not sure how you would improve on it other than removing the SG.

James is exactly right on the 2 piece design. The only suggestion I'd have for improvement would be to allow the bracket that holds the hilift to rotate a few degrees to the side to allow for an improved departure angle.

Ok I understand. That pipe doesn't look like it is long enough to go all the way through the thickness of the wheel though. I guess it would end up right at the backside of the wheel. Doesn't it rattle a bit because of that pin connecting the pipes together?

I wonder what I would have to do to get it to fit on the setup I have on my rear door. Chop off the brace in the middle of the tire mount?

Chop or simply unbolt it from the inside? It looks like a u bolt. You could probably unbolt it and reinstall new hex bolts in its place.

My guess is it would rattle but I have no experience with them, mine is on the bumper where it belongs. I like the Idea of adding additional holes so it can be rotated 20 or 30 degrees to allow the foot of the jack to be at the bottom corner of the tire.

1) They are two separate pieces for convenience, to be able to get to the spare tire and/or the jack.

2) The only difference between the SW and ST version is the hole on the pipe, they are off by 90 degrees. You could easily drill a few additional holes to accommodate options.

3) A secure lock that would lock the jack to the part, plus secure the part too. Optional attachments would be cool too, i.e. jerry can holder, bike rack option or basket rack, and etc. I am not trying to debate the weight issues with the tire carrier.

They were $85 new... But SG is gone, so they are no longer available new.
