    Last season, no issues with carrying small blower in back of the Jeep. This season, with the Daniels on the back, the tailgate/hatch is unusable. Spent the past days building roof racks to carry my SnowPlow shovels but the top is really not very sturdy. Ended up using quick fist clamps and notching out the bumperettes. Very solid mounts. Should make it a bit quicker for my shovel guy to grab his weapon of choice, and no snow in the Jeep.

    Nice- my jeep reeks of 2 cycle fuel and wet carpet all winter. Could you share a closer picture of the mounts? Thanks.

    Nice and neat - me likey. I got a few things in the way
    that wouldn't allow me to do anything like but for many
    years now I've been using a bungy up front. Think I'll use two
    for this high dollar shovel. [​IMG]

    Sure thing- passenger side quick fist is mounted using the existing hinge bolt. Driver side, mounted with one small screw through the bottom section of the hardtop. Shovel blades are resting inside "channels" I cut in the bumperettes.

    I only use this Jeep for snow plowing, but I did not wish to start drilling holes unnecessarily through the hardtop or body.

    No idea where locally. I bought them online. Google "Quick Fist". Come in a bunch of different sizes. I use them to hold down everything from flashlights, tools, fire extinguishers, air tanks.

    Shovel Holder

    I have a thule twin bike mount on the spare tire carrier and we stow two shovels using the carrier. The Thule mount has frame tube holders and flexible tie downs which work perfect for holding shovel handles.

    Haven't lost a shovel yet!!
