    Hello
    Is anyone running a Hi-Lift jack mounted inside a Pelican case that mounted to the roof rack?

    Why in God's name would you put a Hi-Lift inside a pelican case? You afraid the paint will get ruined? lol

    Use the pelican case for other recovery gear.

    Also why would you want to put all that weight up high on the roof.

    I have an old highlift somewhere and a pelican 1700.. I could see if it will even be possible without taking the jack all apart

    Because roof racks. "All that weight" is about 28-35 pounds. A 5 gallon gas can, full, runs about the same. What would you rather have on your roof rack? Certainly you've seen both, and more, on a roof rack?

    There are valid reasons to have a hi-lift on the roof, there are valid reasons not to. It comes down to a choice based on several factors, enough so it depends on the situation, it's not a yes or no answer.

    I agree putting it inside of the case is a waste of money. A pelican case to fit it is going to cost more than the lift is worth.

    If you want it on the roof rack, just attach it directly to the rack.

    Edit: 1750 is $270. A 48" hi-lift is $85.
