those are all kinda weak spots....

If it were me, I would either stick it where I do, or on the little cubby thing on your door. I had mine there for a while...I am all about easy access if you know what I mean

I do live in south florida...

Mount it to your center console...but reinforce it. I reinforced my C pillar interior plastic using 1/8" steel plate on the back side when I bolted the clips on. Works great, and havn't seen a crack or anything like that yet.

I just found a place here that sells those Maglite holder clips. Before that it was only on the net, and I wasn't going to pay more in shipping then what they're worth...LOL

For the time being I have mine here:

I decided not to mount my light anywhere. I put in on the floor between the drivers seat and the door molding. It slides a litle bit, but it is handy to have there.

That's a good out of the way spot, but it is kind hard to get to if you are in a hurry.
