Shovel

I just got a new roof rack and want to add a shovel and axe to it. Any particular kind people find best? Steel, fiberglass, wood, with a handle, without a handle? Just wanting some feedback as why you like what you got.

I was looking for one to use down on the beach and I found this one on Amazon that seemed to have very good reviews.

The less weight you can have at the top of your Jeep, the better. Added weight at the top can make the difference on flopping or not flopping on an off-camber trail. I know the safari look is appealing to some but it's not practical unless all of your wheeling is on flat terrain.

I agree with jerry that is why the bond is perfect. It is small and very light but enough to dig you out of certain situations. I believe it can fit inside the jeep perhaps on the tailgate with some quickfists but I haven't measured. Two things I always take when driving on the beah.

A shovel and a bucket. If you get stuck you can dig out enough to use the bucket to get some water and wet the sand. This compacts it so you can drive the hell outa there.
