front fishing rod holder

Hey guys new on here so sorry if this has been asked before but, i bought accessories for my trucks roof and rear and i need a spot to put my fishing poles, I have a 2001 wj and i have the 2 hooks on the front. I want to take the passenger one off (2 bolts) and put a rod holder there (for 3 rods) but i cant find one anywhere to buy one and i want it to look clean. I'm an OK welder but not the best, has anyone seen or built something like this before? I dont want both hooks gone just incase it but i have no use for having 2 and it's the perfect place for them. Thanks in advance guys.

You could make a removable system with a receiver and round tube/pipe for the rod holders. Parts for all that are readily available and not expensive.

well i dont want to take up the whole front end with something like that cause i already have a carrier for the rear receiver hitch, i just want something small out of the way for where the passenger side front hook goes, i still want the other hook still in (not that I've even been stuck but you never know) has anyone seen something like that for like 3 fishing rods?

Get some PVC pipe that your rods fit in and bolt it to a piece of wood then get Ann L bracket from the hardware store drill a few holes and bolt the one side to the wood and the other to where the bolts for the hook goes.

Or you can always just mount the PVC to the carrier you have in the back keeping the rods out of the way looking down the road I know there not bulky but it would bug me to have them there
