Shovel mount....

Ok I have this little folding military shovel and would love to mount it somewhere. But I cant figure out where as I don't have a rack nor a tire carrier. My goal is hi-lift hood mounted and shovel somewhere else. I'm an idiot when it comes to mechanical stuff... Any thoughts?

I have one of those except mine also has a pick on the other side and is olive drab. They're actually great if you get high centered ecspecially with the pick its small so you can get into tight spots and dig yourself out fairly quick. I like it very functional and a life saver at times.

Its red because my dad gave it to me that way...and the use for it would be well...digging myself out of something. The shovel part folds up or out or anything in between..quite versitile. Zip-tie seems kinda cheesey and id like to lock it somehow really. Just didnt know if there was something out there for a tool like that. No worries I'll figure something out. May just lock it somehow to my Hi-lift when I get that hood mounted. But really wanted it back by my rear tire. Just with stock tire carrier there is really no room to make-shift that.

I saw a post where someone was able to mount a full sized shovel underneath his hood.Yes,it fit!I thought that was a great idea,and there is plenty of spare room under there.You could fabricate some mounts and mount it to the inner fender,or even to the braces that run from firewall to grill.Walking through a home-improvement store in the fencing or electrical areas should yield some conduit clamps,fence clamps,etc.,which would make that a breeze!Just use your imagination.And theft would never be any issue,as well as being out of the weather!

How about just beneath the doors on the outside, but there is a risk of some F***** stealing it.

How about throwing it in the back of your jeep?

I'm going to look into putting it in the engine compartment. Like that idea.

Find a surplus store or a place that sells police issue stuff and look for a police baton belt loop and mount it on the roll bar

Ultra Force Nylon Baton Holder with Belt Loop at Safety Central
Azan Snaplink Baton Belt Loop

I like that idea. It's small when folded. I see mounts for shovels if u have a basket or a carrier. Honestly there is room under the spare on the bumper just wasnt sure if there was a bracket for something like that

Go to the Army / Navy Store and get one of the new types, that folds up smaller and you can put it in the glove box.

You can barely see my folding shovel in it's tan pouch behind the tow strap and tree saver:



It's a Gerber E-tool copy:

Amazon.com: Gerber 30-000075 E-Tool Folding Spade with Serrated Blade: Home Improvement: Reviews, Prices & more


You could easily and cheaply mount your current shovel with some of these:

You can see mine right underneath the snorkel elbow. It clips right onto a bracket. The bracket is available at any hardware store. It is the one used to hold a 2x4 brace on a door.

^Nice Jeep, but those tires look way too big for the clearance you seem to have. o.O

Mounted mine on the spare tire with a strap. For security I put a gun lock through the holes on my spare and around the shovel. I also use a gun lock to secure my hi-lift. I love gun locks. You can use them for about anything.

I paint my camping shovel and axe red so I can find them readily. Don"t lose them in the weeds.

But no ideas for mounting them, sorry.

I know this is old but this is where I mounted mine. Built a cool little clamp to hold it there and all.

military styled e-tool would be the best if you're looking to mount inside the tailgate....
