Hey, guys. So, today we're checking out the RedRock 4x4 Hi-Lift Jack Tailgate Mounting Bracket fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So, having the recovery tools with you while you're out on the trail or even on your everyday adventures is definitely important. And a jack is one of those. Now, a lot of the time we don't carry them in our Jeeps just because they're big, they're heavy, they're awkward inside the Wrangler. So, having an exterior storage solution is always great. And this one by RedRock 4x4 is going to do exactly that. Now, this is going to mount directly to your tailgate hinges, and it's gonna provide a good location and very accessible location to mount up a recovery jack. Now, this will be made of a steel plate material, so it is going to be sturdy, and it's put in a very sturdy location considering that it is on the tailgate hinges itself. And it's also gonna have a nice textured black powder coat finish on top to protect that steel underneath but also match with any other heavy-duty accessories.Now, I would keep in mind the location of the jack mounting bracket. If you're looking to upgrade your rear bumper or your tire that is definitely great to do so. However, if you're looking to upgrade to an aftermarket tire carrier, just keep that in mind that this is on the factory mounting locations for the hinges, so it may not be compatible with all aftermarket tire carriers. Now, if you are looking to upgrade to an aftermarket tire carrier, there are other solutions available that are very similar to this, so I would just keep that in mind. Now, this is going to be a very easy to operate system, very user-friendly. The mounting location itself again is very solid, but this is also gonna come with knobs and carriage bolts in order to mount the jack itself up. There's gonna be one on the mainframe of the jack, and there's gonna be one down at the base. Again, that's gonna keep it in place, while also making it incredibly easy to take off and put back on especially if you're out on the trail and you don't have a lot of tools on hand. This isn't gonna require any tools in order to utilize your jack.Now, this is also gonna have a main bracket to make sure that the main part of the jack is staying in place. But this is also gonna come with a strap for the handle to make sure that it's not rattling around. So overall, even though this is a very easy and affordable solution, it is very inclusive and there's a lot of details in this small design. Now, as far as the jack mounting point itself, I would keep the base of your jack in mind or the one that you're looking to upgrade to. Now, this is going to be about 7.5 inches deep and about 4.5 inches wide. So, this may not work with every single jack that's available on the market. But it will work for a majority of them. I would just keep that in mind if you have a jack at home or you're looking to purchase one in addition to this bracket here. Now, with all of that being said, this is going to be a pretty affordable option for a tailgate mounting bracket for a Hi-Lift jack at about $75. Now again, this is very simple, it's very easy to use, and it's a very affordable solution for what it is.Now, in comparison to some other choices that are in the same location and set up very similar to this, some other options that are a little bit more expensive may just come with extra support brackets, they may come with extra pieces, or it may be a little bit bigger to accommodate some of the larger sizes for Hi-Lift jacks or recovery jacks or farm jacks, whatever you wanna call them. Now, in comparison to some other solutions for mounting up a jack, I personally like this option. There are other options available on the page that will mount it up to the hood or mount it to the hinges on the door. Now again, those are all solid mounting locations but this is gonna keep it out of the way and keep it in a good and very accessible mounting location if you ever need to use it. As far as install is concerned, this is gonna be incredibly easy to mount up and even easier to use. I'm gonna give this a 1 out of 3 wrenches on the difficulty meter taking you no longer than 20 minutes to get the job done with some incredibly basic hand tools. So, speaking of that install, let's jump into that now.The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a soft pry tool, a 13/16-inch deep socket, a 13-millimeter socket, and a 5-inch extension. So, the first step of our install is to take off the tire. Now, I am personally gonna take off the tire and just to give myself a little bit of room to work with. You don't necessarily have to do this step, I'm just doing this because we have an oversized tire here. Now, the tool that you're gonna need to remove the lug nuts is gonna depend on your lug nut size. I'm gonna use a 13/16-inch socket and my impact wrench in order to take that off. So, next, we're gonna remove the tailgate hinge covers. I'm just gonna use a panel removal tool and you just have to unclip those. Next we're gonna remove the two inner tailgate bolts making sure that the tailgate is closed. I'm gonna use a 13-millimeter socket. Next, we're gonna take our longer provided bolts, our bracket, and our flat washers and lock washers. And we can install this onto the tailgate and thread those into the same mounting holes where the original bolts came out of.Next, making sure that the bracket is straight, we're gonna take that 13-millimeter socket and tighten those up. So, at this point, now that the bracket is installed, you can install your jack. Now I don't have a jack here to represent how that is installed but we do have the hardware in order to install a jack. So, I did wanna let you guys know how to utilize this hardware. They're gonna have a knob up at the top and a knob down at the bottom, one to secure the top part of the jack, and then one to secure the base. Now, the top part, there's going to be a longer carriage bolt here that's going to sit inside the bracket and it's gonna go through the jack. Now, when that is on there, what we're gonna do is put on the provided spacer. Now, once that spacer is on there, we're gonna have a bracket that's gonna sit around this part of the jack and keep that in place making sure that it's secure. Then we're gonna take our flat washer and lock washer, that's going to sandwich against this bracket here and then the larger knob out of the kit. And essentially what that's gonna do is sandwich the jack in between the bracket and this smaller bracket here.So, this upper mounting bracket is gonna sit just like that, but there's going to be a jack sandwiched in between, then we're gonna head to the bottom. Now, at the bottom we're gonna have three different mounting locations. This is gonna depend on your jack, but there's gonna be a smaller carriage bolt that we can utilize with a flat washer and a lock washer as well. We're gonna pop those on there, and then we're gonna utilize the smaller knob in order to tighten down the base. Now, these are gonna make it incredibly easy to utilize your jack while also making sure that it's secure on the back of the Jeep. There's also gonna be a nylon strap with Velcro included in the kit. Now, this is going to make sure that the handle and the mainframe of the jack are staying together and there's no rattling on the back of the Jeep. It's pretty self-explanatory, there's just a little buckle here, a little loop, and then this is going to go back around and Velcro, and that's gonna keep them together. And for our last step we just have to put on our tire.So, that's gonna wrap it up for my review and install. Make sure you like and subscribe for more videos and products just like this.
