Jeep Rope Holder
Army Jill likes to keep her jeep all nice and tidy…don’t you?Dear Editor, Here’s a neat way to carry a tow rope on a jeep. The way it’s usually carried around the front bumper, it’s bound to take a lot of punishment when you’re pushing other vehicles and whatnot. Just take a piece of scrap 2×4, a piece of tin 2 wide, and a bolt about 5″ long with a wingnut. Cut out the bottom corner of the 2×4 enough to have the top corner lie on the frame between the radiator and the bumper, put your piece of tin around the opposite frame member, and attach it to the 2×4 with the bolt and wingnut (see Fig 4). It’s Cpl. H. J. Criggers idea and our instructor tried it out. Pfc. Frank DeMar Fort Sill Ed Note: The tin loop around the frame member acts as a hinge for easier winding or removal of the rope.
