    Not a bed rack, but I went with a Fiskars D-handle shovel from Amazon and a matching chopping axe from Ace Hardware.

    Slightly, yes. I actually face it the other way now because it's easier to get it in the mounts this way.

    Quick fists for the mounts.

    Go to Home Depot and choose a shovel and ax you like.

    Or spend 3x that amount and get a crazy beaver shovel. :rofl:

    I just keep the shovel and axe locked in my toolbox, protects them from the elements.

    Yep, had a shell on my 91 for 12 years, it was nice but had a tendency to accumulate too much crap over time. Started using toolboxes in my 99 then 04 and now 16. It keeps me from over filling but still keeps what I do pack dry and secure. Doubles as a bike rack too.
