The mount fits and works perfectly and is a great solution for someone that doesn't want to or can't mount the jack on the exterior of the Jeep. I will note, I'm not using a soft top, so I can't speak to previous reviews regarding that.
Nice mounts, however they put the jack right in the way of your soft top if you try to lower it. I plan to re-locate the mounts or ditch them and put the jack under the rear seats.
Just a caution. Mounted this on my 2011 Rubicon. Everything went well until I tried to use the windshield washer spray. Jack blocks it from hitting the windshield.
Put this kit on my 14 JKU the fit on the mount its self was spot on, bolted right up. However, putting the jack on was a little bit trickier the holes in the jack body (Hi-Lift Cast/Steel) didn't quite line right up, they took a little coaxing. Retrieval of the jack off the hood can be a little unnerving if you are worried about the hood paint. The hood mount do keep the jack a lot cleaner and drier than my old bumper mount. I also love the look. My 4'11" wife, however, says it blocks her driving view. I will include this a pro since it means she wont drive my jeep anymore.
Mounted on the front bumper of my 2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ Rubicon and it is rock solid with proper installation , installation is easy with proper tools about and hour and a half by yourself.
finally was able to mount my chritsmas gift, it was well worth the money.
Is this a lockable mount?

Asked by brandy from parsonsfield, me on
Brandy, the Hi-Lift Jack Hood Mount is for the JK models from 2007-2016 so it will not work on your 97. The one you will need can be found here: http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Winches-Jeep-Winch-Accessories/Hood-Mount.aspx?t_c=18&t_s=190&t_pt=10044&t_pn=H/LHM-825. I hope this helps!

I had a cheap mount Hi-Lift hood mount on my CJ5 and it did not keep the jack high enough so the hood could be fully opened (and leaned against the windshield) without having to remove the jack. Do these mounts for a TJ allow the hood to FULLY open (lean against the windshield) when the jack is mounted? Thanks
Asked by Chris from Maine on
Hi Chris, This Hi-Lift Jack Hood Mount fits the TJ hood hinges but not the CJ's. The hood won't flip back to the windshield frame with a hi light jack installed on the hood hinges, regardless of mount brand. Thanks for your inquiry.
