For under 6 bucks you can get the mag-lite mounting bracket. How much cheaper do you want to go???

Where can you get the mag-lite mounting kit/brackets? I've checked with my local home depot and seems like everyone is confuse and I can't locate any.

I have a similar problem. I went to Lowe's and Atwoods and the only size brackets they have are for the D Cell maglites. None for the C cell maglites.

I picked mine up at the local Ace Hardware. I just walked to the flaslight/troublelight aisle and there they were. They had the mounting kits for all of the sizes as well as some other accessories for the lights. I can't remember what I paid for them now though, I know it was under $10.

My dad used to watch the Smokey Mountain Knifeworks show on some sattelite channel with Chris Kirk. Everynight it was on for about two years he would watch the entire show. Now he's kinda lost interest, but I did get some pretty cool knives from it for birthdays and Christmas.

I don't think my LED headlamp would have been as visible from a half-mile out, although a halogen headlamp might do the trick.

I have a holder made out of heavy duty nylon w/velcro mounted to the roll bar. I bought it off a seller on ebay several years ago for about $5. Works very well.

This is an older pic, I've since cleaned up the wiring. I've got 3 12V plugs, a cheap Black and Decker inverter (great for parties, throw the big stereo in the back of the Jeep and just back it up next to my bud's pool), and the MagLite mount. I've since chopped the transformer and hardwired the mount for a cleaner install. The quick releases mean I don't lose any cargo room either (below). Oh, and the transformer is also hardwired now as well. NO loose wires back there, except 3" from the actual MagLite mount when installed.

OH, and my reasoning is simple. I'm an EMT both in very busy (next to Philadelphia, school) regions and very slow regions (rural PA, home). My slower response area we respond from home, and the distance means I usually arrive in my own vehicle. VERY handy to know you have strong, reliable illumination every time you go out! And yes, the weight is always handy...

You can never have to many flashlights. There's a good reason cops always hold their Mag Lights by the bulb end and the tail propped on their shoulder. Brackets are readily available on the internet for cheap. I keep mine mounted on the floor by the drivers seat where it's handy for self defense.
Petzl and Princeton Tec both make excellent 3 watt LED headlamps that are incredible. If you haven't tried a 3 watter you need to. Like someone mentioned earlier, they store great in a glove box.

Surefire rule the flashlight world. I was skeptical about giving up my maglite, but I got a surefire issued to me when I got deployed. I carry that and a headlight. I can fit that bad boy anywhere and it's great for when you need a lot of light for repairs, but not a lot of space. It has a WAY better beam, is much brighter and a hell of a lot smaller. Also, I have a self-defense bezel on the front of mine so between the blinding capacity and the sharp teeth on the front, it's a great self defense tool as well.

x2 on the Surefires - but they can be pricey, and the battery life isn't amazing (of course thats depending on models). I got my rechargeable maglite setup for less than 50 bucks brand new off ebay. Streamlight also makes rechargeable lights, or for extreme performance look at light boxes.
