Anywhere you want it to go, there is no particular spot that is made to hold a shovel on a TJ.

Where ever you want it to. It wasn't offered as an option for Jeeps, which would be OEM. There is no set place to put it.

I attached a little bracket to my tire carrier and keep a shovel right behind the spare.

Mine is currently being used to hold up the transmission. Jeep calls it a transmission skid.

I've got one of those too . . . Pretty cool feature that Jeep put on all the TJs . . . they sure don't make it easy to get to when you need it though!!!

That folding shovel sounds like the e-tool that I carry in my Jeep. Just find a place to get to it easy when you need it and strap it down. Mine gets strapped to the hi-lift.

I'm getting more of a flat spade that doesn't shovel nearly as well from Undercoverfab.

I wonder if my current shovel can be strapped to my hilift?

Go to your hardware store and they should have cheap generic mounts of some kind

I have a small shovel much like the one Kammit has. I keep it as well as a board and a tow strap under the rear seat. They all fit and are out of sight and out of the way.

The shovel's been there for over 6 years without issue. Are you in the insurance business?
