The Smittybilt axe and shovel mounts with roof rack adapter are heavy-duty universal mounting brackets that provide secure mounting for an axe and shovel. The Smittybilt axe and shovel mounts accept a standard padlock for security. Axe and shovel are not included.
It fits great on mine. Be mindful how tight you get the bolts though, the sidebar can bend if you go too tight. Plus DO NOT lose the part that actually holds the ax and shovel, unfortunately they don’t sell it separately and I had to buy a whole new one because I had lost the outer piece.

You need the mount with the adapter brackets (SB-D8138). Google is your friend, that is, at least for searching the internet.
Is this compatible with the smittybilt defender tailgate rack for jeep JK's?
Answer this question
Yes the Smittybilt Axe And Shovel Mount - D8138 will mount to the Smittybilt Defender Rack Tailgate Bolt-On Basket - 76718
The back plate has four bolt hole locations. If your rack has a place to insert four bolt in the same spots, then it will work. There are two models of the shovel/axe mount, choose the one that best fits. -Best!
