Flashlights

I always have a flashlight in my vehicle, and today's flashlights are a far cry from the kind that were available 20 years ago. Today's LED lights and CR123 batteries put out an amazing beam! What's in your vehicle or EDC?

Mine is
#1 D cell (4) Maglite with a converted head to LED kept in my Silverado.
#2 Nightforce MT40 for the Jeep
#3 Coast LED (runs on 3 AAA batteries) for the wife's Equinox.
#4 Surefire P9 (converted with a Cree LED head) for EDC.

What do you carry?? In your Jeep and EDC....

I used to use olights but i have changed to powertacs. They are rugged, waterproof, and bright as hell. They also have a lifetime warranty. I have a keychain one, a cadet, and an E10. Ill never go back.

I have a Silver Maglite installed with the roll bar holder. Great accessory. I use it a lot while working on my Jeep at dusk.

I carry a Streamlight ProTac, and keep a Surefire G2 by the back door. Pricey, but the performance is awesome. Still have an old fashioned maglite 4 cell, tho probably won't replace the bulb when it dies

I want to get a mag light for my jeep, but I've always been held back by the fact that they're sticking to incandescent despite how superior LED is. But I've never hear about this conversion, any more info on how that's done?

In my EDC, I dropped a nice 48 bucks on a Fenix PD32 about 3 months ago. Some of the best money I've spent, I don't know how I ever got along without this light. Only complaint is that I carry it in my rear left pocket, shifted to the side so I don't sit on it. But it still finds a way to wiggle either end loose so that sometimes I need to snug it back up when I pull it out before it works. Other than that, it's a great light. Battery just started dying down this month, and I've used it a good amount the months before. Often on the highest setting. I've even left it on a few times for hours.

What got me into EDCing a light was a little streamlight micro stream. It's a bright little bugger, clocking in at 10 lumens when it's half the size of my pinky. Downside is that it's attracted a lot of pocket lint in the time I've had it and isn't very bright anymore. It also flickers a lot. I'll be cleaning it up and putting it in my EDC bag.

Costco carries 2 LED FLASHLIGHTS w/ Duracell batteries (500 Lumens) each for $25! Beyond bright then considering 2 for $25... No brainier!

Models 2012 and up you used existing holes on the seat bracket.
Models earlier than 2012 you used one existing hole and drill new hole in front.

I have a small Coast LED on my belt all the time (work tool), and medium sized ones in the Jeep and car. They've come in handy a few times. I also have some magnetic ones in my tool bag. This one is especially useful: Sears.com

HexiledRazz... you can get an LED conversion for a Maglite at Home Depot, probably Loews, or any store that sells flashlights (True Value, Aubuchon Hardware, etc.) The one for the four cell (D) light cost me about $20 a couple of years ago.
