Proper Jack Storage

I did a search and struck out...

Anyone have picks of jack properly stowed?

Doesn't it go behind the battery on the passenger side? It's been so long I can't remember.

I have a hydraulic jack in the bed that bounces around.

Yep. I know where it goes.

But getting it to fit correctly so the clamp can be fastened snugly in a different thing.

I got rid of that pain in the butt jack mount and made more room under my hood for my PA speaker. Now I carry a floor jack in my tool box. I have 31s for now and up grading to probably 33s later this year. AA stock jack doesnt work too well for me anyway.

Thanks Midnite.

It's hard to tell from the picture... Is your jack sitting at an angle, so that only the corner goes into the slot?

I see your lug wrench is missing. Will the jack still fit like that with it too installed?

Thanks

yeah the wheelwrench is missing. but the jack sits horizontal the whole bottom "platform" sits in that hole in the fender. it clamps tight without the wrench so im guessing it will with it.
