What kind of top are you running? That looks freaking awesome

Gumpy2030 I know this is old but this is where I mounted mine. Built a cool little clamp to hold it there and all.

dbbd1 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.

k9cop 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.

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

localfiend 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:

Trublue0313 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.

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

dutch169 I'm going to look into putting it in the engine compartment. Like that idea.
11-11-2010 07:56 PM
Kempton How about throwing it in the back of your jeep?
11-11-2010 07:42 PM
Jeegar How about just beneath the doors on the outside, but there is a risk of some F***** stealing it.

Shokker 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.

yjkid95 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.
11-11-2010 05:35 PM
dutch169 Why is it red and what have you used it for.......?

TheGG54 Ziptie it to the roll cage?

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?
