Aloha all,
I have been searching the threads, but can’t find anything related.
I have a D2 with a stock front number and an ARB steel rear bumper. Looking for a mount to either that will accept the Hi Lift Jack without major customization.
I have seen lots of options for mounts to the rack, sadly we had to remove our rack due to height in the garage.
Any suggestions would be very welcomed?

IIRC it should lay down in the back seat. No reason you need to lug it around day to day. For god sakes don’t mount it to the hood. I’d suggest giving yourself more points to actually use the hi lift as the rear bumper is your only jackable point currently

So this is a Condominium building. While I would love some place to store things other than my closet, I don’t have the ability at the moment. So the jack really needs to be in or on the truck for now.

I have ended up using 1/2” stainless bolts through the Jack points. On the back of the bumper I have installed the screw head from the tube mount. So all you see from the outside is the bolt.
the Jack is sitting outboard on top of the recovery points, so there is still access to the shackles if you needed them, but ideally the Jack would be off when the points were being used.
