Hi Lift mounting ideas???

Hey guys,
Well, I picked up a Hi Lift today and I need some pics of how and where you guys mounted your Hi Lifts on your trucks. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!
Matt

Why dont u put one on ur hood and see.

Jeeps look much better with them partially cause of the angles. Our rangers are very smooth edged and putting it on the hood would lose a good deal of visibility. In a jeep its different.

Howabout you just do it, or see someone do it, and then offer the idea.

You can try if u want. And Karpe is being serious, since he's said it before in the other thread. He meant it seriously to mount it there.

ok children go to your corners. on teh hood is a posibility but if you did it it would be foolish. under the bed rails is the best choice. or you could be like me and put it on the bed rails. i have seen people put it on the rear or front bumpers of styles like mine and it looks good but that would be bad for you. if you see christians truck (one on the opening page of the site) you could also mount them to the roof basket.
