Tiny Jeep Shovel
 
Where is the shovel that comes with the Jeep supposed to be located at. Mine was on the backseat when i bought it.

Jp90Talon 03-31-2011 11:15 AM

Wait I have never heard of Jeeps coming with a shovel excpt for maybe a Willys

2dmud 03-31-2011 11:16 AM

Oh cool. It came with a tiny shovel and a fire extinguisher

Jp90Talon 03-31-2011 11:18 AM

Yeah not OEM but good things to have!

2dmud 03-31-2011 11:19 AM

AWESOME! but still where does the shovel go lol

Jerry Bransford 03-31-2011 11:29 AM

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

Peepers 03-31-2011 11:29 AM

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.

2dmud 03-31-2011 11:43 AM

So why is there a shovel then? lol

Schmo 03-31-2011 11:43 AM

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

2dmud 03-31-2011 11:44 AM

It's like 2 ft long and foldable lol i dont think it would look so good on the tire carrier

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!!!

funny thats the same place mine is.

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.

And I thought I was special and had the only one...

erickpl 03-31-2011 02:15 PM

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? :)

KRAMMIT 03-31-2011 02:35 PM

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

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

KRAMMIT 03-31-2011 06:48 PM

Metal to metal contact with the front clip support rod (negative), and the tip of the shovel half an inch from the positive battery terminal? I hope you have comprehensive insurance...

tallzdatank 11-29-2012 04:59 PM

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.

LiftedTj 11-29-2012 05:39 PM

I have a fold-up military surplus shovel that goes under the backseat

Beachcomber 11-29-2012 06:09 PM

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? :thumb:
