Here is a Jeep with a holder mounted on the spare. It's not a DIY, it looks well made. Sorry for the lack of detail in the cell phone picture.

So here's a pic of mine. I used a el cheapo rod holder and mounted it to a board. I then drilled holes in the board to mount it to my bumper. This was supposed to be my "temporary" setup, but its been like this for...many many years, so long I don't remember, with no issues. I've put 6'5" bass rods and over 7" saltwater rods in it with no problems. I use a bungie to keep the rods in the holder on long trips.

All these look great, the one i made (posted above) has worked fantastic and doesnt get caught in these low hanging trees. Only issue is that with doors on you have to remove pole to get in. Without doors you can easily climb under. Oh well. Haha its cheap and works

I have folding poles so length isn't an issue for me. I got the 2 gun seat holder from Academy Sports for $20 and it holds the poles on the back of the front seat. Academy - Game Winner® Seat Back 2-Gun Rack

I cut some pvc that I had, painted them black and bolted them to my bumper.
Had on there a few years and they work great.

The straps used here were called rope wraps. They are 1" x 12" and came in packs of 3 for 5 bucks. I bought two packs. They are velcro. Used one strap on top and one on bottom for the rear roll bar and hooked two straps together for top and two together for bottom for the front roll bar. (6 total) 1 strap wasnt long enough to wrap around the front roll bar so luckily they came in packs of 3, so it worked out perfectly.

All the parts i used i got at walmart. $10 for berkley horizantal 6 rod holder
(x2) $5 for 3pk of velcro rope wraps
Total: $20
Exactly what i was wanting. If i left out any details or anything let me know. Hope it helps someone wanting to do the same thing as well! Thanks for all the help and keep the ideas coming for others to use!
I cant see your attachments I think the vertical holders would work for what I want.. I was wondering were to put my rod, and my friend said to strap it to the roll bar that goes across the middle of my tj.

Its nice because it doesnt hit the low hanging trees like a bumper mount would since theyd stick straight up. My contraption keeps them out of the sky. Also it was under 20 bucks haha ive had so many comments and compliments on it from people around town (mostly fellow jeepers). Its worked well for me all summer. Works with or without doors, just gotta put the rods in adter you shut the door and take em out before you open it. Only issue is wont work with a top on but i dont have the top up until its freezing so thats alright with me haha. The rod holder removes and installs in like 2 minutes. Just velcro straps

Awesome! I have since stopped using that idea and simply slide the reel/handle under the passenger seat with the rod going straight back out the jeep. Its much easier and quicker and doesnt get in the way of opening the passenger door. However i rarely have a full backseat. If i did id pull my contraption out of the trunk

I have thought about building a setup to accomadate my poles when i take the kids fishing, so the set up is pretty easy to build. 2" pvc tubing for handles attach to a wreath hanger(the kind you use on the door) then drill a hole on bracket part that goes over the door. then with a bady washer and roughly 3 inch bolt you can fasten it to the body where ever you desire and its temporary for fishing season.
