Hi-Lift Jack Jeep Wrangler JK Roll Cage Stealth Mount (DIY)
This post provides a simple “do it yourself” option for the hi-lift jack Jeep Wrangler JK roll cage stealth mount. Altogether, the mounting parts cost less than $11.50, and take about five minutes to locate at a local hardware store. And the final farm jack mounting location is secure inside the jeep. Moreover, this location is nominal, as it is out of the way, and does not obstruct your rearview vantage. Updated June 20, 2021.
On a scale from one (very easy) to five (difficult), Geo Forward finds this “do-it-yourself” project to be a 1 (very easy).
Materials You Will Need:
The following are the materials necessary to complete this project.
- Three (3) #5 Conduit Hangers
- Three (3) 2-inch long bolts with a hex head (1/2″ x 5/8-18)
- Three (3) lock washers to fit the select bolt
- Six (6) flat washers to fit the select bolt
- Three (3) wingnuts to fit the select bolt
- One (1) roll of 1-inch thick black polyester felt tape
- Hi-Lift Jack, Harbor Freight Farm Jack, or others
Assemble Each Hi-Lift Jack Jeep Wrangler JK Roll Cage Stealth Mount
Assembling the three mounting points is easy. Simply fasten a bolt through the flat surface of the #5 conduit hanger. Use flat washers and lock washers accordingly, and the hex nut to secure the bolt to the conduit hanger. Refer to the image below for the order of components. Keep in mind that another flat washer, as well as the wingnut, are to be fastened after hanging the Hi-Lift jack, in order to secure it in place.
Place the Hi-Lift Jack Mounts Around the Roll Cage
Upon sliding the conduit hangers onto the Jeep’s roll cage, initially keep them loose for proper alignment. Loosely mount the base of the hi-lift jack onto the two mounting points, and then hand tighten both wing nuts.
Then repeat the process on the other side of the Jeep, with the third mounting point through the top of the farm jack.
Straighten and Fasten the Hi-Lift Jack and Tighten the Mounts
Once the hi-lift jack is straight and proper, tighten all nuts and bolts to secure the farm jack. Afterward, you can apply a single layer of felt tape around each bracket so it matches the roll cage covers.
Using the Hi-Lift Jack in the Field with a Jeep Wrangler JK
This setup provides easy and quick access to the high-lift jack in the field. The use of this farm jack is encouraged in situations where a Jeep Wrangler may be stuck. In such cases, increasing tire pressure using an onboard ARB air compressor, along with the proper use of tow straps can help get out of sticky situations. Alternatively, drivers can use their winch.
