Yakima Hi Lift

I want to thank Blackeye for the great idea of using the Yakima Hi lift mount on the Aluminess Front Bumper . I just finished mounting my 60"
High Lift Extreme Jack as Blackeye had posted and it really is a great solution for the transporting of this piece of equipment . I had previously carried inside of our EB-50 inside of a JackGuard Blow Molded case in the rear compartment and am very pleased with the
additional space provided by moving to the bumper . Thank you again Blackeye .

Yakima Hi Lift

Gregg ,
Blackeye was kind enough to share with (photograph's) of his install a couple of weeks ago and I must say that it was sure a great idea for me . I posted a couple of photos as well in my Gallery .

Greg,

You have probably already searched and found my post on the Hi-Lift / YAKIMA mount. Here is the link in case you or others need it:

http://www.sportsmobileforum.com/viewto ... highlight=

We have added a neoprene / velcro wrap to the operating end of the Hi-Lift to protect the moving parts from mud, debris and accelerated deterioration. I used an old Simms gravel guard. Greggde will understand.



The mount has worked really well.

I love that mount but where do you install the front plate? It's a ticket here in California.
Dave.
