Yeah thats why I don't have one yet either.. then again I'd love to something like Travis Schanafelt's safari pacific build up but not as intense with the cab just the topper/tent/tire carrier... stupid money....

I've got the stinger DS led.. best flashlight to date for me..

Tre, do you have pics of the lights? or where did you get them? I want something bring and relatively cheap, but still small.

A friend of mine in Wyoming mounted marine speakers into the lid of his box, if I didn't score such a nice one i might have considered it.
Matt here's mine. Here's what I bought at first,

So I swapped out each of the 6 LED's to a higher mcd white LED:

Also have the same set, also with replaced LED's under the hood... Makes it nice not having to HAVE a flash light to see stuff at night:

I'd rather go with this, Tim.

Bright White 120 LED 120cm Waterproof STRIP Flexible : eBay Motors (item 370268669786 end time Feb-28-10 11:44:18 PST)

Would go almost the length of the toolbox on the lid. I've had it "watched" for like 4 weeks now. I just don't know when I'm gonna buy it lol

They're really bright and just as easy to wire in as a regular light, being they're 12v. They're the same things people run in computers to light their cases. And they're cheap.

My roommate has them in his trunk of his accord and they're awesome.

If you mount them so they're secure, they're not fragile at all...

I finally got an inverter. I've wanted one for years.

My main reason was so I can bring my laptop camping/wheelin and be able to upload pics to it and erase the ones on my camera.. Or just use it for what ever on a trip.
