Hi-Lift Jack Storage

By Jeep Experts

This is fairly brief and easy….however it’s a useful place to mount your Hi-Lift jack assuming you could have relegated the rear seat in your TJ to the storage shed or higher but, offered it on the native flea market.  An excellent buddy had been engaged on his TJ throughout this previous summer season.  He had completed up most all the modifications he needed besides for locating a spot to maintain his Hi-Lift jack.  It had been dwelling on his rear tire provider however after eradicating the provider and shifting the tire into the bathtub, it left him and not using a spot for stowing the jack.  When we bought collectively over the weekend, we put our heads collectively and a simple answer (to not point out cheap).

We began by drilling a 1/2″ gap into the tranny tunnel on the TJ.  It is barely offset of middle, to the driving force’s aspect.  We did this with a purpose to keep away from the e-brake bracket that lies straight beneath the realm we have been engaged on.  As you’ll be able to see within the above photograph, a washer and nut maintain the newly put in 1/2″ stud in place. 

To stop water from getting in (not an enormous downside right here in AZ however different components of the county do get moisture), we put RTV across the bolt head and washer to seal it. 

A wing nut holds the jack in place.  Simple and straightforward.  The coax cable will once more be tucked out of harms method now that the opening is drilled.  A tail gate tire spacer (those most people take off as soon as they placed on a tire provider) was simply pushed into service to take up the area below the jacking mechanism and assist cease it from vibrating round.
