So I used to have my axe and shovel mounted to my roof rack using the quickfist grips and it worked great but I am selling the roof rack now and still wanted to mount my axe and shovel on my roof. So I took the U-bolts I mounted my roof rack with and drilled a hole in the plate that held the roof rack down when botled to the U-bot and drilled a hole in the center of it. I put the bolt that holds the quickfist grip in place through the hole in the plate and bolted the U-bolt onto my stock roof rails. I tightened the bolts down as tight as I could and then cut off the excess U-Bolt threads that wouldn't let the quickfist sit flush over the U-bolt plate. Once I did that I bolted the quickfist down tight and then cut off the excess bolt threads sticking out of the center of the quickfist. Then I painted them black and called it good. Here is what they look like:

looks good the only thing that would bug me is that now anyone can steal them, I was about to mount my axe outside but I ended up putting it on my tailgate on the inside and love it there

Yeah, I still won't keep them on full time. I'll throw em on when I need to and when they aren't on there, the quick fists are small enough to not bother me with the look of them and they won't catch the wind like my roof rack did. I still need to fab up the gas can mounts since they won't be mounted to my rack either.

it depends on where you want it, it fits under the rear seats or you can mount it on the roof rails

48" model will slide right under the rear seat.
