dude that thing is sweet. you can never have to many tools in your rig. never know when you will need them. Might just have to chop up a tree that falls across the road one day.

LOL, no no no. That's what the Army's folding shovel is called, an "e-tool" and stands for "entrenching tool" 'cuz it's what we use to dig our "trenches"; i.e. fox holes (which SUCK BALL$ digging a hole that deep w/ a shovel that small!) as well as hasty positions (shallow little divets basically in the rough outline of an oval for you to lay down in and be flush w/ the ground).

hehehehehe. I wouldn't know, because I was never in the Army. I just scrounged for parts from my cousin's old stuff before he took it to the surplus store. I've not used it myself yet, but I have volunteered its service to my retarded cousins who got their 4x4 Tacoma stuck at the beach. They didn't much enjoy it, considering I could've easily pulled them out, but it did save their ass otherwise.

It's a lot more practical than keeping a full-length shovel in the truck, so it does have its value. :D :)

I'm still waiting for my Shrockworks bumpers to be completed. How do you have your shovel attached to the tire carrier? Is it ghetto-rigged with some bungee cords, or did you weld on some brackets?
