LoL not my neighborhood im worried about you can never be too careful, never know what might happen in life. Bet that guy in the range rover that ran over that motorcycle gang wished he had a few cans of pepper spay and a stun gun . D cell maglites are great though long lasting flashlight, club if you get attacked, break glass tool for when you put your jeep into a lake. Fits perfect on left side of seat on floor and that carpet edge keeps it from moving.

I had a teacher tell me a story about when he was younger and was hitch hiking once.

This woman picked him up and drove him quite a ways to where he was headed.

The thing is, the entire time, he noticed her left hand was always down at her side while she drove with the right. He couldn't figure out why.

When she let him off, she turned to him and said "I'm glad you didn't try anything since I always carry this...." and pulled out a .38 from the pocket of the driver's door...

She had her hand on it the entire time...

Nice lol well she wasnt smart to pick him up but at least she was smart once she did. What i tell my family is there is no need to be parinoid but just always be aware of your situation. Of all the millions of people that are murdered, raped and robed none of them ever enter a situation thinking that is going to happen to them, its not always something that happens to someone else. A few dollars for a few items that can buy you a few seconds of time can make all the difference.

I would just have to remember to actually buy them...

See, I'd buy them....put them someplace where I'll remember to install them...then promptly forget about them until months later when the guys that build each segment of time for us finally stop adding them to the scene.

That's actually why we lose stuff, then somehow it appears right where we thought we already looked - the guys forgot to put it in the scene for us:

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

If you are looking for a decent flashlight at a fair price, keep an eye out at Costco. I picked up a couple of Duracell 4 C cell lights with an LED bulb. Very bright and a hefty baton if needed. The batteries seem to be holding up quite well and while a nice tactical ( expensive ) flashlight with expensive batteries is nice to keep in the pocket or brief case, this is a similarly-bright light that is perfect for the car. I am a self-described flashlight geek and there are a lot of decent lights that take conventional batteries and have great output.

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

I like the idea of having the flashlight always at the ready, but it could definitely be brighter.

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

If it was more powerful and a quality flashlight I would suggest jeep leaves it in. However it really serves no purpose. For the price of these jeeps it should be a maglite.

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

I'll say this about it. The one in My 2011 Laredo X ( purchased Nov 2010 )
that I just traded in March still worked and I never used it once..

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

We didn't even realize that there was one there in our 2013 Laredo X. Though we've been fortunate not to need one at night with a flat tire, etc.

Checked it out and it works good but like others have said, it's not very bright.

Re: Built In Vehicle Flashlight Survey

The built-in flashlight in our Jeeps is super weak sauce...especially compared to my Duracell Durabeam Ultra 1000 lumens LED flashlight.
