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:


OMG, I remember that Twilight Zone episode - brilliant! And the older and more forgetful I become, the more I believe that's what is really going on 😉

But those old candle bulbs from years ago are so dull, you couldn't see much anyway. Do any vehicles still come with underhood lights nowadays?

Fits perfect on left side of seat on floor and that carpet edge keeps it from moving.
Only thing might be if you have to jam on the brakes, that flashlite location would probably lauch the lite forward and possibly prevent the brake pedal from being reapplied if need be. Could be bad news.

Actually they don't have much more charge in them, maybe 10-20%. But they do have way more shelf life. So don't use them for cases that have normal drain/usage, because you are wasting your money. But if you want them for backup and leak proof, that's what they are good for.

Agreed.

Their painting changes haven't made for an acceptable luxury vehicle paint job as of yet.

I know it's not the Jeep Flashlight, but can you tell me more about the light you put in under the hood?

Well, those are outsourced, so I won't hold my breath on that exchange.

However, I'd find a built air compressor far more useful. It would serve well for both tire inflation and for pumping up water toys at the beach.
