I was wondering if anyone has one of the old Kaymar Hilift jack holders that mounts the jack to the passenger side windshield hinge?

I'm trying to find a spot to mount this thing but I don't want it on the bumper or inside my cab and I can't afford a nice rear carrier.

If anyone has one or something similar laying around let me know.

Also, if any of you with welding and fab skills can make one, I would be willing to pay for your time and materials. Could probably sell a few on MUD too since the Kaymar version isn't sold in the USA.

If it makes a difference at all, I would also be interested in the same thing Martin. All we need is someone with the skills, equipment and desire.

If you mount the jack on the side of your rig, you may be unable to use it if you lean the rig against that side. Mounting the hi lift on the rear, front, or roof makes for more likely access in most situations.

A few years ago, I was planning to mount my hi lift on the side too, until some kind soul explained this to me and talked me out of it.

Yeah, I have been researching the options and I know a lot of folks don't think the side is a great place for it. But, if I flop it onto it's side, I'll probably have bigger problems than needing to get my jack out, and if I'm in a situation that flopping is a possibility, I hope there will be other rigs with recovery gear around.

Plus it looks so cool :cool: :D

Looks like Irbis has something similar.

great tip, thanks! I'll give Oleg a call and see if he has any. :thumb:

Edit: Oleg said the part was a custom one-off.

Still looking.

I contacted Kaymar in Australia and they got me in touch with Man-a-fre, their USA distributor and they had them available, but not listed on their website. The part came yesterday and looks like it should work. I'll need to drill a hole in the running board to keep the lower part of the jack secured, but the upper part is bolt-on and ready to go. Now that I have it, I think it would be really easy to make one (if you had the tools) and less expensive too. It was about $45 from Kaymar.
