    Default Hi-Lift Jack Mounted (cage style)

    I spoke recently to Hatch @ Safari Straps and Ken @ River Raider and asked them if the high lift jack kit works with my 1" straps.

    Shoulder's shrugged - but we were all optimistic that it could be done. At the Big Bear run we saw a Rescue Green unlimited that had gotten the two products to work together using the traditional bolt up spots Ken discusses - but I wanted something different.

    Ken then says that there are the exact same untapped holes at the top of the cage before the horizontal plane - sounded great to me!

    I personally like it up there much better than the lower spot - keeps access to the rear tub easier and I can keep the straps nice and tight. I've got all 4 holes tapped still though so if I ever want to relocate the jack for whatever reason I can do so easily with either a 19mm wrench or an "infinitely adjustable" wrench.

    Traditional Spot:

    I'm curious as to how much (if at all) either position interferes with the top.
    Looks awesome.
