My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I made two brackets like this that bolt to the bed.

That allowed me to mount the jack across the front of the bed as seen in this picture.

I will be creating something new soon, for my new bed. There are also mounts you can buy. But they seem pricey to me.

Yeah I was googling pic trying to get ideas not sure if I want it on the rear bumper/swing arm or the roof rack( the bumper is not installed yet the roof rack doesn't exist yet... looking ahead I know) Hell truck barely runs, brake lines aren't done, no driveshafts blah blah blah.. But I appreciate peoples opinions on here and there are a LOT of good ideas floating around so I figured I would see what people were doing! :)

I had considered putting a mount on my tire carrier for my hi lift. After completing the carrier with spare and my chuck box... the additional weight the jack would add is a no go on my Ranger. It struggles with what is there already. You may have a better shot with the AOR carrier then my homebuilt unit though.

Gump I thought you had the AOR carrier? Guess not.. lol yeah I am not sure how mine will hold up just a 31 but it is a steel wheel. Gonna try to keep it as tight to the body as I can on the adjustable carrier.

Yeah... I have their old style rear bumper made from 3/16". I bought a double shear hinge from 4x4 Innovations... and a De-sta-co latch and just built the carrier. I did acquire a set of AOR heavy duty rear bumper brackets to put on. I think they will take care of a bunch of the flex I get out of the bumper end when swinging out the carrier.

That will be good. Hopefully they will remove/remount easy. I just found an idea I like for the fastening still not sure where/how it will mount though. Slow days at work are hell on my bank account.. too much GTS happening

I have one mounted to my roof rack, I made two mounts out of a long 1/2" bolt and a piece of flat plate. It is mounted to the rack with little U bolts. The big 1/2" bolt sticks through the holes in the jack, and there is a nut/washer lightly screwed on, and I drilled a hole in the end of the bolt for a hitch pin so that the nuts don't work loose.

I did something similar on the other truck in the background, but I used carriage bolts up through the wood bed and just some big wing nuts to hold it in place. I wasn't as concerned with that one because it's just kinda sitting on the flatbed. You can kinda see it in the middle of the ladder.

It's actually two 3.2 gallon Kolpin gas tanks stacked on top of each other...they are similar to Rotopax. Don't do what I did there :) They swell up in the sun and are a m-fer to remove from that mount I made...I used them on one trip to AZ and was afraid that they would rupture and spill fuel everywhere, they got like twice as big as they look in the pics!!!! Cool concept but never again!!
