It's small and simple. I use a bungee cord to hold it down. A 20' strap, 10' strap ,my ball hitch, jumper cables and emergency blankets.

I keep my essentials in an SOS zip up hard container under the rear seat. Also under there is my jack tools and socket set. Torx bits, screw drivers and pliers are in center console

Rotate it to the left and it slips out. It's like a quick release shovel.

Then, I went inside and finished up a new shift boot design so some other jeeper can mod his rig:
I think I'll steal the shovel idea. I have the same bumper and I just removed my off road lights b/c one was broken

I like the "sticking out of the hood" look! Has me thinking of doing an air intake routed to the air filter box.

frankenbury I'm thinking I'll put some in the back bumper and wire to reverse and wire some to a switch in the front bumper. This way I can flip them on when I want some light to work or whatever and it won't use the same battery power as the headlights.
10-16-2014 07:54 PM
clull05rubi I wired mine on a switch. Theyre too brite for baking up in parking lots and what not. Some ppl will throw a fit if they get an eye full of these. Theyre 10 watt single leds so you know theyre hella brite

Eh, once you know it's there no. In my danger ranger I got enough room where it doesn't bother me. I got the XD as well.

Bass pro shop sells them for like 20 dollars a piece. My glock is heavy but it hasn't fell off before. It'll move a little like shake but won't fall. I also have the glock 42 which is a lot lighter and it doesn't budge. As long as the pistol has a flat surface on top your good. I keep one in all my veichiles. .

I thought it was just me! we had a whole 2 or 3 page discussion about this the last day or two cuz I said I had back up lights on a switch an when someone would ride my ass I would flip them on

Garrettcc93 Did a couple things to the TJ today. Won't let me post both for some reason at the same time. But this one is the bottle opener on the wheel well. Sure it may get beat up but for 5 bucks can't beat it.

I think it's worse when try change lanes into your lane but they haven't quite gotten all the way in front of you because there isn't that much space between me and the car already in front of me. I guess try don't think that all steel bumpers can hurt them

What I do is keep the right foot on the gas and put the left foot on the brake, just enough to make the lights come on and keep them on for a few seconds.
