Here`s a little mod I found on the other site, and decided to do it since I found some Mag-light mounting brackets. These cost about $6-$8 bucks. Just drilled into the plastic door panel being sure not to go too deep. Then just screwed them in. Some folks have mounted them on the seat frame as well, but this is a little easier going thru plastic. Also, you can flip the light so the beam faces outward in case your stuck on the road at night. The only thing I would do different is I would`ve mounted it a tad higher. It slightly touches the seat height adjustment lever, and moving it up about an inch would remedy this. Being that it was screwed in plastic I was a little reluctant to put it here, but it actually is very stout. Doesn`t rattle or slip out.

Looks good.

My freind told me to get a "lawn mover hood catch" or something at a flea market and they hold the maglights. It looked cool in his truck.

that looks cool, does it get in the way of you getting in and out of the jeep...meaning do you hit it with your knees?

It doesn`t get in the way of my knees. It does however have to be positioned just right so it doesn`t hit the seat height adjustment knob.

I see adam. Well I really like how this looks and it is nice to know you have quick access to a flashlight, and when I need one when i'm wheeling with you I know where to find it. :idea:
