shovel
 
hello, im new to the forum so sorry if this is in the wrong section. should i put a full length shovel or an e-tool (foldable shovel) in my jeep to save on space? until i get my back bumper/rack

I carry a shorty. T-handle, fiberglass shaft, metal shovel bit. For me it happens to work with my Overhead rack where I carry it and a 3/4 axe. Something is better than nothing.

I keep a shorty on my Jeep too . . . the shovel part is decent sized. I added a braket onto my RockHard tire carrier and keep it there . . . I think it's been on there for a year and a half now . . . used it once to put out a camp fire . . . haven't needed it on the trail . . . do more rock stacking vs. digging out here in So Cal, but it's still nice to have just in case.

:rolleyes: this is an older pic, but as soon as I'm back in Nevada, I'll put the shovel back on my new front bumper-using "Quickfists"

Pretty handy there

:rofl::rofl: JIMBO

A E-tool is better than nothing
I like the shorties with a full size
blade
Just carry it on the trail or
if playing in the snow
they really dont take up much room

Those fold-able shovels don't give me the leverage I need. Here's where I mounted my shovel. It's for the most part it's hidden and out of the way.

Nice, How many miles do you have on your jeep?
