flashlight mount

I have a streamlight stinger rechargeable flashlight I wanted to mount in the rear cargo area. It appears that the rear acc. outlet reamains on when the vehicle is off. I would assume this would drain my battery. If I remeber correctly the front passenger outlet runs off the key(at least on my Grand Cherokee, I had). However, I would prefer to have it in the cargo area. Any ideas?

Either put a switch back there or use a 12 volt extension cord with a switch in the cord if you do not want to modify the outlet in back.

The front driver's side outlet is on/off with the key. The front passenger side outlet is always on.

I have two MagLights under my driver's seat and a small light in the cubby in front of the shifter. That works for me & no drilling.

Most sporting goods or gun stores sell the maglight mounts.

Thanks Huey. I have one of those police-style mini flashlights with the batteries that cost 12 bucks a piece, lol, in my console. I hate fumbling for it though, and sometimes, unknowingly, I'll be looking for something else and the button gets pushed through the case resulting in 25 bucks worth of dead batteries and me being screwed if I need a flashlight, haha. That setup in the pic above looks pretty sweet.

http://www.amazon.com/MAGLITE-ASXD02...5594861&sr=8-1

I bought two round magnets at my local hardware; the magnets are drilled through the center, and are mounted in metal housings.

I used a nut/bolt to mount the magnets to a pair of the Maglite mounts and then glued felt fabric to the magnets.

In a Wrangler this provides a way to mount the Maglite to the tub under the passenger side door - or anywhere else there's metal to attract the magnets. It's much more secure than it sounds. Thanks to another driver cutting across the bow of my TJ I had a sudden, uplanned, immediate stop, causing the airbags to deploy, the swingaway bumper gate broke loose, everything loose in the vehicle flew forward - except for the Maglite. Didn't move an inch.

Currently my Maglite is in a "wide mouth" tool bag that resides in the back of the Cdr in the tray by the hatch - but I'll have to get out there and figure a handier spot. (One of the advantages of the TJ over the XK is that there's no shortage of uncovered metal surfaces in the TJ ).

But the mounts (with or without the magnet modification) do a nice job of holding the flashlight.
