Show me your flashlight install

I'm thinking of installing a dedicated flashlight in the jeep, looking for ideas of what others have done.

I have mine mounted on the driver's side seat frame. I bought the bracket from quidratec. It uses normal maglight flashlights brackets with a custom mounting plate.

Both sides of the front seats and one on the tailgate door, but I don't have a pic on me of the latter.

Here’s what I did, this was on my 2dr but I moved it to the 4dr when I switched. Just used self tapping screws to screw it into the seat slider bracket.

I have Bartact seat covers so I just attach my stuff to the MOLLE webbing, a flashlight and some CS gas.

I have a super-bright small, AA flash light (mini-mag size) with a pen clip that I clip to the drivers side grab handle straps (I have Mastercraft grab handles)

These are great. But when the clips break and they will or you just want to change the flashlight size you can just order the maglight clips from Amazon to replace

Here are a the options that we offer for flashlight mounts:

https://www.quadratecforum.com/node/1356278

You can just choose your Jeep from the drop down menu.

We offer a few mounts; one for the driver seat and roll bars.

I keep mine in the front mesh pocket.

It's a small modified light, but has 3400 lumen output, very bright and nice tint, warmer than cool.
Its usb chargable so I dont really worry about not having a charge on it.

Bartact seat covers are great.

Don't mind the dog hair. The Wundermutt goes everywhere with us.

Next to my right knee I've got a 1050 lm flood/search and my beater knife:

There's a 3 D-cell Maglight under my seat too. Not as bright as the others but it's good for use as a baton.
