Roof rack. I aligned holes in the bar to existing risers and holes on my Aluminess roof rack. As mentioned by others, theft deterrent, rarity of use, etc. I used to store one on the front grill guard of my pickup, but the winter was hard on it there, catching all the grit on Colorado roads (summer and winter). When I did have to use it, it was so froze up with grit and rust, unseizing it was a job of it's own!

I don't have any good images of mounting, but you can somewhat see in this photo. Max-Trax are similarly mounted on opposite side.

Where are the best lift points with Aluminess bumpers?

I was informed by Aluminess years ago not to use a hi-lift jack on their bumpers when raising the vehicle. Where do you guys with these bumpers position the hi-lift jack when lifting the rig? Thanks.

I use the rock sliders built by Weldtecdesigns. High quality welds, all steel.

One could also use the Highlift Jack wheel lift accessorie. https://www.amazon.com/Hi-Lift-LM100.../dp/B00042KGWG

Crustyfish, I have the Hi-lift wheel accessory mentioned above. I have only tested it in driveway, and it seems like it will work, but I have not used it in the field.

Would the wheel accessory be an option for lifting via a shackle off the front bumper? Says they are rated for 5,000 lbs.

I've see it done but Aluminess said not to use the bumper or shackle as a lifting point. Maybe a CYA thing, I don't know. But being able to just lift wheel can help in some situations as compared to lifting the frame. BTW the wheel tool (I have) doesn't fit every wheel. Here is a pic of CellularSteve.
