i got my Timberline pack and noticed there were no ice ax loops. Any suggestions to modify the pack or attach them on?

Ice axe. Backpacking in the early summer on steep snowfields or crossing glaciers in the Cascades.

The loops are usually located near the bottom portion of the pack. The ice axe shaft slides through the loop, flip it up, then strap it to the pack. There is only webbing located on the side of the pack. I'll figure something out.

Check under military accessories on the Kifaru site, they have an ice ax holder. Not sure if it will work with the timberline or not. It's worth a shot anyhow.

It does look like this would attach to the webbing loops on the bottom of a Timberline and the handle could be clipped into one of the upper straps:

I actually manufactured something out of 550 cord for my ice Axe, but it attaches the same way/area as the photo above. I use the upper horizontal compression strap to keep it in place.

I checked out the military packs from Kifaru and the ice axe attachment, but unfortunatley the Timberline model packs only have webbing on the sides of the pack and hip belt. I have some extra cord I'll rig something up.
