i did it today but i havent taken any pics yet. im also gonna put a second bolt in it like some mentioned before to tighten it up a little better. this method works great if you want to mount your hi-lift in the back while keeping your rear seat and belts in.

The clamping piece on the hilift. Comes on the top, can be moved down and rotated to clamp stuff together, has a bolt through it. Did you flip that piece in the clamping position when you put it in the mount? Or did you leave it sticking up on the jack?

So you just put the mount through on of the holes in the jack?

On the hood's fine, I was looking into buying one of those mounts but decided not to for two reasons, 1, I wanted to keep it out of the weather, and 2, they were more $$$ than the jack and I'm a broke college kid.

Certified Golf Professionals are the ideal trainers, fully qualified to teach you how to play the discount golf clubs game. Baseball uses a much bigger ball and you have a comparatively larger bat to swing with(ishiner). You have several chances of hitting the ball to make a play. With golf, you must hit the ball perfect each and every time you are up for your shot.
