anyone got some contact info on this? I saw it when it first came around but can't find the thread

Someone on this thread said they reenforced it with a 1/8th i think it was steel or metal. And used self tap screws w bolts. Where can you get the metal or steel from? Thanks any info is appreciated. I may mount mine on the A pillar

I think that was me and I used 1/8" plate to reinforce the C pillar plastic and I then used machine screws(aka tiny bolts) to fasten them together. I didn't want the screws to rip through the plastic, then I'd be screwed.

Hardware store or hit up a fab shop or home depot might have something. I used scrap from work or school. IDK which.

I went with whatever filled in the holes on the mag brackets. I don't remember. If you look on the first page, you might see why I don't remember. (2005)

ok so i finally bought the huge maglight you guys are mounting all up in visible places....

in my extended cab it slides right under the passenger seat with only the head sticking out. doesn't affect the seat moving forward and backward. doesn't slide out even when slamming the brakes. and is within arms reach.

i'm still confused why anyone would mount one of these ugly things in the open or in a location that can cause massive head trauma in the case of an accident. to each his own i suppose.

So if you find it's "ugly", why did you buy one?

The clamps hold the light so tight there is no way its going to come out unless you pull on it. I got in a accident going 35 before and it didn't budge.

The "Clip Mounts” they hold TIGHT but do they wear into the aluminum case over time or does the aluminum wear the clips ?

I am still interested in the under seat setup, anyone have any input on it (a couple of posts up).

OK thanks, I will have to look into making one or two.

Not sure what to use for the rubber side pieces but will need something to support it and hold it tight.
