H R Bumpers and Hi-Lift Jack?

Need some help/advice. I am considering ordering a JKURHR as my first Jeep. Is it true that the Hard Rock bumpers do not have any provision for accepting a hi-lift jack? If so, could they be easily modified (after-market kit/accessories) so that you could use a high lift jack with them? I'm willing to pay extra for the HR, but if I have to replace the bumpers to accommodate a hi-lift jack, that could change my ordering strategy.

They don't have jack interfaces on them and I'm not aware of any aftermarket jack adapters for them either. There are some smooth surfaces that could be used but it'd be risky.

What you could do is order a normal rubicon and then later purchase the HRR hood from Mopar. It's around $720 the part number is 68184708AB-MK. You could work it out with your dealer to include it in the cost of the Jeep.

This way you aren't paying extra for bumpers you're not going to use.

Just saw this today. A company called Maximus-3 is making hi-lift tabs for the Hard Rock bumper. Says its coming soon so maybe already available.

I couldn't find the hi-lift tabs at the Maximus-3 site. I did see that they have a high-lift jack Mount coming soon. Could this be what you saw? I'm going to order my JKUR this week and will only go with the hard rock package if I could easily rig it up to accept a high-lift jack.
