Instructions are hard to follow
This is a good mount, but there are some changes needed to accommodate all jack. There is a problem with the jacks not seating properly in the mount. the instructions need to be rewritten for easier installation.Helpful (1)

Great Product...Instructional video would be nice
Great product so far! Took me a little bit to figure the instructions out, but once you get into it, it's very easy to install. Just like fitting a square peg into a square hole...ya just figure it out! Use all the parts...Unlike other reviews I've seen on here...Drilling into the plastic is OPTIONAL. I installed mine with them off.Helpful (2)

Make sure that if you're using this with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Hinge Casting that you also get the SPACER KIT that is sold for it. Some sites sell these items together and when it all arrived it was boxed together. You won't need the spacer kit if you're not using an HD tire carrier. Buying both of these separately on Extremeterrain saves you some money as opposed to buying them together on other sites. Here is the spacer kit link: https://www.extremeterrain.com/rugged-ridge-off-road-jack-mount-spacer-kit-0717.html As for the product, it's Rugged Ridge, can't complain, solidly built. Directions as others have said could use some work if you're using it without the spacer kit. Luckily I was using it with the spacer kit and it's made 5000X easier that way.Helpful (1)

An instructions are garbage . Spacers are to deep,so I can not return plastic hinge covers back on. And they have four holes now,as instructions guide us all. Just beautiful. Lost three hours trying to figure it out,but with the bolts and incorrect spacers its impossible to make it right. I called Extreme Terrain rep today,your representative told me that you have five videos about installation,and I've told him there is only one on the app telling us, consumers, how this product is great. He advised me to look on the computer,and now I did.Still single video about nothing. Pictures are more detailed then printed one,and they all suggesting that plastic covers have no place.Question!Why we were drilling plastic hinge covers for? Shame on you!Helpful (2)

Although reviews say this will work with the Rugged Ridge tire carrier, it will not! Tried it and spoke with the factory to find that as is it will not work!Helpful (1)

Product works, instructions need help
installed this product on my 2010 2D Jeep. Looks good and functions nicely. Went off-roading and found no rattling and did not come loose, it remained well secured. In terms of the instruction, it needs lots of help. I appreciate Rugged Ridge providing pictures, but none of the were visual. The verbiage did not clear things up either. In the end, it was a bit of trial and error. Overall, I would recommend, just be patient, you'll figure it out.Helpful (1)

Good solid Hi-lift mount
Installed easily. Instructions were clear and correct. A little difficult to get spacers behind the mounting plate. Looks good and does the job well. Very little weight transfer beyond the hinge. This went on our JK.Helpful (1)

Would of given it 6 stars if it was an option
I explored all jack mount options (hood, door, interior) and the tailgate best fit my money pit and my future wish list of mods. Very little risk of damaging the paint or causing dents when taking off and on. Bolted right on, easy install. The only issue I had was the previous cb antena mount that I had already installed.... had to modify the spacers a bit. Strongway jack fits perfect in the base, tight fit NO RATTLE!!!!!! Highly recommend as long as a swing tire mount isn’t on your mod list. Not saying it wouldn’t work.... I just don’t know. Very satisfied!!!!!!!Helpful (1)
Is this Hi-lift jack mounting bracket useable Rugged Ridge 11546.51 HD Tire Carrier with Hinge Casting for Jeep JK Wrangler?
Thank you for your question! This Rugged Ridge Hi-lift Jack Mounting Bracket will work with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Carrier.
Will this jack mounting bracket work with the stock bumper and stock spare tire carrier?
Hello, yes this mounting bracket will work with the stock bumper and tire carrier.
will this mount work on my spartacus tire carrier?
The Rugged Ridge Hi-lift Jack Mounting Bracket will not have issues with the Rugged Ridge Spartacus HD Tire Carrier.
Does this need to be drilled into the jeep factory bumper?
Hello, in the following link you will be able to find the installation guide for this product: http://1.cdn.lib.extremeterrain.com/guides/J12790_Guide.pdf
Does it come with all the hardware to mount on the Spartacus hinge and tire carrier? ( all spacers and screws )
The Rugged Ridge Hi-lift Jack Mounting Bracket will include all the hardware necessary for proper installation.
The Rugged Ridge Hi-lift Jack Mounting Bracket will not properly fit with a bumper mounted tire carrier, as the tire carrier will interfere with the mounting location for the Hi-lift jack mounting bracket.
Yes, these should be compatible with each other.
That is a VERY tight fit, and to be honest with you, we have not tried those two together. I would suggest holding the jack up to where it would mount with this bracket to see if it will fit. I cannot guarantee that it will because it is very close. That jack would not hurt the tail light when installed in that spot.
This can be installed on vehicles without a Rugged Ridge tire carrier, and has some different steps for installation detailed in the guide provided.
This item has not been tested with the Teraflex Hinge, but is intended for use with the Rugged Ridge XHD rear bumper with tire carrier or other aftermarket bumpers without tire carrier.
The covers are optional to be reinstalled with the brackets. That is why the drilling template is included.
While this is compatible with most rear bumpers, we haven't tested it with the Maximus-3 rear bumper and are unable to guarantee this.
The Rugged Ridge Hi-lift Jack Mounting Bracket fits JK models only.
This item is designed to work with the factory tailgate hinges and would not work with the Spartacus HD Tire Carrier.
This will fit your RedRock jack.
