I have the Gerber version with one side serrated. Its not knife sharp but I will chop up small brush and branches. I bought it for camping and ended up using it a lot. Mine sits in an old military shovel pouch under the drivers seat.

Beachcomber 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.

LiftedTj I have a fold-up military surplus shovel that goes under the backseat
11-29-2012 04:59 PM
tallzdatank I got one of those extending rods for a pick-up box, put my shovel, ax, saw, lug wrench, and traction mats under the back seat. they all fit, just.

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

KRAMMIT I have a shovel, and mounted it here (borrowed the idea from the JK guys)

erickpl 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?

Bone 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'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!!!
