I have a question about high-lifts. Are newer ones lighter and and are they more or less sturdy/durable? I have one that must be 30 or 40 years old and it's impressively tough, but fairly heavy (~28lbs). Not sure if that's the norm. Seems like a lot to mount on the spare tire carrier, but I'm not sure where else to put it.

So we got an answer on this. Most of us will need to get an additional jack for on the trail. Here’s the included 2021 Bronco jack. First let’s look at where it’s stored.

In both the 4 Door and the 2 Door, the jack sits below a pull-up-panel in the rear cargo area.

Here’s what’s included in there: a scissor jack, an extension head for the jack, a small funnel for fueling the Bronco if you aren’t at a pump, and the handle and extensions for the jack itself in a nice fuzzy bag, the bag also include. Here are all the items laid out:

The extension head is held to the jack by one of the turn screws that secures the the head to the vehicle when stowed.

Above is the funnel installed for use. And here are the instructions on the fuel door:

The jack is used in other Ford models:

Finally, here’s the configuration in a 4 Door:

Hope that answers some the questions. I realize that there was some hope for something beefier but this is pretty standard fair for something included with the vehicle.
With that being the jack location—if you have the pull-out tailgate installed, how are you even supposed to get to the jack??

I asked this question to a Ford rep the other day. The answer is that the pull out tailgate is designed to still provide access to that compartment. Haven’t seen how it works but supposedly the final version’s top surface can be disengaged when the tailgate is fully slide out. Disengaging the top surface will provide access to the jack compartment.
