I used industrial sized zip-ties to mount and axe to my front bumper.

I'm sure if you send Tiny a PM, she could hook you up with some

Personally I'd mount them on your bumper. You do NOT want items breaking loose and flying through your windsheild. Heck put them in the back of your Jeep when your wheel.

You mean for those instances when you're going in reverse REALLY REALLY fast, and then slam into a tree or another vehicle or whatever???

I rather put it on the back bumper so if it flies off it hits the person driving behind you, instead of ur windshield.

For the shovel, i've seen people put it through the frame right behind the front bumper.

just found this on yahoo.

Old thread, I know. But. In all the comments I've been reading today (figuring out where to mount an ax & shovel), you're the only person who intimated/commented that in a crash, what was mounted to your hood was likely going to obey the laws of physics ...and go flying forward.

I was trying to puzzle out what I was missing; what are the chances you get smacked so hard in the rear that your hood-mounts fly off? How fast were you rear-ended? (Could happen. Anything could happen. Just didn't seem reason enough to poo-poo the idea of the hood mounts.)

Kudos.

...which doesn't mean that I'm mounting a shovel to my hood lol.

Agreed,, I mount nothing on the hood. Unless your jeep is strictly for off road safaris, the hood is just a bad place.. I see guys with hi- lifts up there, and wonder how much of a pain in the butt it must be to get it off, when the jeeps leaning 30 degrees, in muck, or on rocks, with out ripping the hood to shreds cause you have no leverage to lift it off.. Oh well, to each his own,, fist grips for shovel and axe, and rack mounts for hi-lift, they're up high, and getting to them quick, in an emergency is easy.
