JK Off-Road Jack Mount allows you to carry your Off-Road jack on the outside of your vehicle saving precious cargo space. Fast and easy bolt on installation. Compatible with stock and most aftermarket rear bumpers (without tire carriers) as well as Rugged Ridge XHD rear bumper with or without tire carrier. Bracket is sturdy and secures the jack in two locations to eliminate any vibration noise during vehicle operation. Durable textured finish looks great. Fits most off-road style jacks including Hi-Lift.
Great product that is solid and sturdy. However, the installation instructions were confusing and not accurate. Once I figured it out it works and looks great!
Bought this mount and the smittybilt jack to go with it. Unlike it says in the questions section. That jack will not fit in this mount. It has a huge base plate.
The mount is very easy to install and provides good security. Works well. The only major draw back it that the bottom mount screw tends to loosen up and the jack rattles quite a bit. Would add a lock nut and a nub on the bracket to keep the jack from moving foward and rattling out of the back clip. That would stop the noise. The other issue is that it should be moved about a 1/2" over to the right. If the rear glass is up and the gate is closed the jack hits the glass. Could cause an issue.
First the template is off by a 1/2" from passenger side. Drill a small pilot hole will let you know where the bolt holes are. You will need 13 fingers to install all the parts, or use super glue to hold it together. Lastly does not fit wide base jacks, such as Smittybuilt jacks, the slot is only 4.5" wide.
Its easy to install if you don't use your plastic hinge covers. Make sure you check the template first, holes don't match the bolt pattern. Use 3/4" to 1" drill for clearance. Once you get past that, its a breeze to install. Good solid mount that looks good.
This is a tough well thought out product with a few minor exceptions. The drilling of the hinge plates is not explained but without drilling, the hinge plates cannot be re-installed. The actual metal does not fit within the hinge bracket as shown but necessitates the use of the spacers. The spacers, washers, plastic hinge plates, and mounting bracket must all go on at once, so if you have three hands, or a helper that listens, this can be accomplished quite easily. Once the bottom bracket is installed, leaving the bracket loose, you must loosen the top hinge bracket and thereby loosing alignment of the gate. At this point you are in trouble, so leave the gate closed! Align and tighten the top bolts while lifting up on the mount. This will ensure your gate alignment will be pretty darn close. Tighten the remaining bolts and install your jack and lock and your done. Nice and tidy.
where does the bracket mount? On the door I assume, but to what bolts. I have a 2008 4 door Wranger Sahara. No modifications with 32 inch spare tire.
