If you had a rollbar or something like that I'm sure you could adapt the way it's done on a log truck with a little creativity.Could be mounted on the inside of the bed on the sides using the same method.
Good luck,

the only thing about the axe/gun mount, in the truck, is

"axe to the head = FTL"

Lol I'll have to take my sarcasm somewhere else I guess.
And allow me to mention again that when I first started this thread I stated that I was considering mounting it inside the cab. As in, not accessible to unmount and put into my bed. I do agree with you, though. If it's mounted outside the cab it has to somehow be padlocked or something to prevent theft or somebody thinking its funny to do some damage.

Hm, thats interesting. I wonder if an axe is more or less likely to be messed with. It seems like you never really can tell if something is going to be a safe bet or not. People will break into your window to grab a pair of cheap sunglasses or something sitting on your seat, but won't mess with the shovel strapped in your bed.

I do like that idea though, mounted on the front inside wall of the bed. After I get mine Line-X'ed in a month or two that might be pretty cool to have something mounted there.

i used metal broom clips, they are spring loaded, have 2 pieces, one is the base, and has an arm that comes out, the other pivots and pinches what ever in the middle... worked great, never had my shovel come off while wheeling!

I have a shovel, axe and Hi-Lift in my bed. Shovel along the side, highlift the other sides, and the axe along the front of my box. You could easily do that with an axel. Just put a thin layer of lithium-based grease on it, then it wont rust.

There are a couple of guys I wheel with that have buggies and they just mount them along the B pillars, or where ever there is space.
