The PVC post gave me an idea - get a PVC tube that is a little tight around the mag lite body and cut 1/4 or so of the cylinder out of it so you get a C instead of a tube, sort of recreating the mag lite clips... if you cut along the radius it will probably pop in on the bevels.
Make 2 about 1"-1.5" wide and a couple of screws through the back and you should be good to go. Grind the back of the tube a bit and it should mount flush...
This is just fresh out of my head, so let us know if it works.

seriously, I looked for interesting ways to mount the mag light too...then I realized the mounts are 3.99 or so at the hardware store (as stated a few posts up)
they can be mounted anywhere and do the job well. There really is no cheaper alternative that works as well unless you use found parts.
Careful about mounting it on rollbar and softtop thou, you never know if there's gona be that ****wad walks by and slash your window to steal it. I took my flashlight off the rollbar into the center console recently for that reason.
