Litegrip "Sport Utility Mount"

Article written by Moab Man

Date Added: 05/04/2006

A large part of serious off-roading is to be prepared, but storage can present a problem in a Jeep Wrangler.

Litegrip has come up with one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" products for safely storing a shovel and axe.

This handy little mount is designed to fit behind your rear seat. By storing the shovel and axe vertically, minimal space is lost.
Most importantly, in the event of a roll, these possibly deadly projectiles are safely secured.
The Sport Utility Mount is secured at the top by a factory bolt, located next to the tailgate latching post.
The base has two tabs that slip under the factory footman loops.

Final Thoughts

The Sport Utility Mount is a great little product. The mount is made of aluminum, so there are no worries about having a rusty mess in the back. Both tools are securely clamped and easily released by the large hand screw.

Additional Notes:

The axe and shovel do NOT come with the Sport Utility Mount. They can be purchased through your local Home Depot or Lowes store.

Remove the plastic handle's rivet (shovel), turn the handle 90 degrees, and drill through the wood shaft. This turning of the handle must be done to close the rear window.

Purchase a pin from Home Depot or Lowes to replace the factory rivet to hold the handle in place.
