Hey, guys. Today I'm here with the Rugged Ridge off-road jack mounting brackets, fitting all '07 to '18 JK Wranglers. This is gonna be a perfect solution if you're looking for an easy and accessible way to access your off-road jack while you're out on the trail. This will also be perfect if you run out of room in the back mounting up all those other accessories, and you need a good alternative. Not to mention the off-road look that this is gonna give you. The brackets themselves are gonna be roughly $60 on the site right now, and they're gonna be one of the most affordable options there, as well as one of the only options for a hood-mounted bracket. I think with the quality of these as well as the easy location that those are definitely worth the price. Install is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches, and speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. So, the first step to mounting up these brackets would be to remove the two T50 torx bolts that are holding in your hood on each of your hood latches. I would recommend you do one side at a time, because you don't want to completely unbolt your hood and have it shift around. So, there's not much here, guys, as you can see, and they are pretty simple brackets. However, these things are durable, made of a 6061-T6 aluminum with a black powder coat finish, so they're gonna be able to hold your heavy off-road jack while you're out bouncing around on the trails and they're gonna be able to resist any rust or corrosion from weathering on the top of your Jeep. They even come with this pretty nifty gasket, so you don't have to damage your paint on your hood if you ever want to take it down in the long run. So, first thing's first, you're gonna put your gasket on the mounting holes, and line up your bracket. You wanna make sure that this protruded end is facing the front of your Jeep. Then you can take the longer hardware that Rugged Ridge gives you and thread that in. I would make sure to hand thread everything first, and then tighten it down at the end. So, after you have those hand threaded, you can take a 3/16 inch Allen key and tighten those down. Now that your brackets are bolted down, you can go ahead and attach your off-road jack. I wanted to show you guys with our jack how easily accessible of a location this is at, as well as how easy it is to attach the jack and take it off. The only downfall that I would have to say about this design is that if you're vertically challenged like me, it can be a little tough standing next to a lifted Jeep to get this on. However, that is very fixable. So, once it's on there, it will sit in its little groove, and you can attach your heavy-duty knobs. So, that's it for my review and install on the Rugged Ridge off-road jack mounting brackets, fitting all '07 to '18 JKs. For more videos like this, keep it right here at extremeterrain.com.

Does Not Fit 2010
I can confirm that this, "Does not fit the red rock 42 inch stand that well. Had to jerry rig it". I received my Red Rock 42" trail jack and it does not fit the Rugged Ridge hood mounts. Not to mention my jack was completely sent to me USED! It had none of its straps or tags on it and was completely scratched up, especially the bottom leg. I love doing business with Extreme Terrain so I contacted them and they gave me 2 offers: return it for a new one at no cost to me or receive a discount. I had to drill my own hole for it to be able to mount and I painted the scratches. So I took the discount, not a bad deal, ended up paying $75 total for jack and mounts.Helpful (2)

great alternative for mounting the Hi-Jack
Easy to mount on the jeep for sure and is a great alternative if you don't want to mount your Hi-Jack in the rear of the jeep. The only fall back is it does kinda pop out on the hood which can be an earsore when driving, but after a while, you tend to not notice. the other fall back is that unless you put some kind of lock on it, it does make your Hi-Jack more noticeable and since it's easy to take off and can be stolen.Helpful (2)

Easy to install doesn’t work with off brand jacks
It went on easy but it doesn’t fit off brand jacks my jack was from Tractor Supply and it wouldn’t line up so I had to order another jack it would have been a 5 otherwise the only true complaint mid no locks built into the thumb screwsHelpful (2)

Extremely easy instal. Didn’t much time. Makes the jack sit nice and firmHelpful (1)
Is this loud when mounted this way? I have a side mount but Im thinking about moving over to mounting it like this.
Can the hood be opened without having to remove jack?
Depending on the exact jack being used, it may have to be removed in order to open the hood.
What size thread are the bolts that are used to mount the actual jack into the mounting bracket?
What size are the bolts that hold the jack onto the mount itself?
Do they come with an insurance or key so they do not get stolen?
The jack mount would not include a lock or key.
The Rugged Ridge Off-Road Jack Mounting Brackets are intended for the hood only and cannot be used for a roof rack.
The jack can be mounted with the base oriented in either direction. At this time we do not offer locking pins.
