I have the Demello High Lift mounts and the Four Trek Tool mounts... went to set everything up on Moby and...

Demello has the instructions for installation on the drivers side for the high lift. This is because if the mounts are on the passenger side the jack has to sit back further to clear the "jack" mechanism. So that got me thinking...

Why do you mount your jack on the drivers side or passenger side? ???

I'm more curious than anything...

I thinks its really about what works, and what people want.

I am using some U bolts to mount it on the passenger side. I have had it mounted with the jack mechanism either inside or out. I think I have it on the inside now, this way it will sit lower and will reduce the risk of "hooking" on to something.

i wanted to mount mine on the passenger side just because of weight reason (fuel tank is on drivers side).

But the way i have my tent set up i have to stick it on the drivers side.

I mounted mine on the rear....Since I'm am not the tallest guy in the world, I wanted to be able to stand upon the rear and unload it without much laboring.

Tim, you may be small in size, but to us you are a giant amongst men.

Mine is mounted on the passenger side just because that's where I put it.

haha Tim, how do you get up on the rear? Do you use a step stool to mount the rear and they don't like it when you unload without laboring!!!! ;) ;D ;D

I mounted mine on the passenger side because it allowed the ARB awning to clear. I have the axe/shovel mount on the driver's side, for easy access in case of road rage... ;D

I mounted mine on the passenger side because of weight and safety. If i have to pull over and change a tire on the side of the road, I want to spend the least amount of time as possible on the traffic side of the car so the jack being on the passenger side keeps me off the traffic side while removing and replacing the jack.

But what I want to know is why does everyone but me mount their hi-lift upside down? The handle is supposed to be on top!
