Did you use the direct wire 12v kit from Mag? What did you hook into for the power?

Magnetic holders

Went to Home Depot, bought two flat washer style magnets, two electrical conduit holders, two sets of nuts/bolts/washers. attach the conduit holders to the magnets with nuts & bolts, open holders enough to insert flashlight, tighten.
Done. I place my 3D Maglight on the bottom inside of driver rocker panel, within arms reach. Oh yeah, Magnets come in handy if you ever needs handsfree light at night. later, Rik

two zip ties and it slides in and out with no prob. Takes 24 seconds to install it. I got write up too if someone needs it. Right above the floor on the pass. side entry step. There are two holes on the side of the tube I ran 2 zip ties through and that's where it is. It slips right into the space (whatever you call that space) and does not rattle or move at all.

No I cut the wire that runs to the charging station and spliced it into my cigarette lighter which gives it 12.6 volts which is what it is supposed to have in order to be able to charge. The regular AC adapter that came with the light converted 110 AC down to 14 DC volts and I contacted Maglight and they said that my light would still charge good with 12 volts since they sell the 12 v kit anyways. I just decided to save some money for something else for the Jeep and just splice.

I got the mounting kit from Home Depot and Zip tied it to the to roll bar between the speakers pods. It is out of the way and very hard to see from out side the Jeep. I like it there because it is in arm's reach when sitting in any of the seats.
My kids like it there because if it is dark out and they need to find something they dropped they just hit the switch and it lights up the back for them.

What is it with everybody having a maglite?

Yah, they're great heavy duty flashlights, but in my opinion they're heavy and bulky. I got a headlamp with LEDs and they do every job I need it for and I have my hands free. Plus it fits anywhere... glove box, pants pocket, and you can even loop the head strap around the rolecage and use it as a cargo light. Mine ran me about $40 and gets up to 120 hrs of light and lights up to 50 metres, all on 3 simple AAA batteries. At 95 or so grams the whole thing weighs less than a bar of chocolate.

I used it to take my hard top of and put my soft top on in the pitch dark (don't ask) and it was all i needed for light.

I have a headlamp in the glovebox, a 4D maglight on each floorboard & two more in the boot.

Also have an LED headlamp, 4D and 3D mags in the Jeep. The headlamp is sometimes good for working on the Jeep, but doesnt throw nearly enough light for camping and such. I can't image gathering fire wood with the headlight. Not to mention I'd be screwed if I ever had to beat someone with the headlight. The 4D could do some damage. The headlight is great for wearing to bars. Really is quite the conversation peice. Especially when you set it to the blink mode. Ohh the joys of buying **** when you're drunk.

Guess you have a point about the wieght of the maglight as far as its defence capabilities go... although i would enjoy seeing a headlamp fight . As far as lighting goes, i use mine for camoping and everything and have always had plenty of light. I seriously think it's all about the type of headlamp you have. It's understandable to wnat mor ethan one lightsource around. I'm just used to camping, climbing and backpacking situations and i don't wanna have to carry a maglight around in my pack for days. glad to hear ppl are using them tho.

at first i mounted mine right on the centre rollbar with velco straps but someone ended up stealing it the first day i forgot to take it down when i left my top off... now i mount it on the side of my driver seat, used two strips of steel and maglite brackets that way i don't have to do any drilling into the seat bracket.

i just use one of the quick release hose clamps and clamped it to the roll bar up high so you cant see it (thank you tinted winders) and when i need it i just release it and you never know when you need a hose clamp for your radiator

ya can't beat somebody over the head with your led headlamp.... ya can't drop your headlamp off of a 2 story building and have it still work, ya can't submerge it in water and still have it work... and they just downright look cool.

Is using these mounting brackets as simple as using a screwdriver and putting them in http://www.outdoorsuperstore.com/sto...=VEHICLE+MOUNT
