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.
Mag-lites make good clubs. A headlamp won't help you defend yourself from the misguided who walk the earth.

Mine is beside the drivers seat, I think the brackets came from either Home Depot or Lowes.

i got some oar holders from a boat supply store for .99 each and zip tied them to my roll bar. they have holes for screws if you want to mount it elsewhere. they hold on tight too, i rolled over and it didnt even budge. theres pics somewhere on my cardomain site.

I used to have my maglight mounted to the side of the seat by magnets. Then I bought one of these. http://www.galls.com/style.html?asso...FL159&cat=2834 Half the size and twice as bright.

I've got one of those tossed in the center console of my JK. Now ignore that I said that until my Tuffy console comes in...

Because they are dual purpose. Light and personal defense.

I like the clips too, but if you're going to use pvc here's a little tip. Heat the end of the pvc (without burning it) until it's soft and slam the light into the tube. It may take a few tries but if you do it right you end up with a perfectly flared end so the light fits snugly and it looks real clean.

My Maglite is mounted right behind the center console. I reach there with my right hand and it's in my hand in less than 3 seconds.
