Jeep Enhancements - Under hood light

A few months back a good friend who is MUCH more mechanically orientated than I am was showing me this great modification he had completed on his jeep. He's one of those guys who has a jeep like Batman's utility belt with all the innovations and mods. Im a big fan of not only seeing what people come up with but what he told me next gave me a huge smile!

So what was the mod you ask? We he had a hood light that was LED, hooked into the underside of his hood, had a nice long retractable cord, and the last finally awesome feature the light had a magnetic base. So not only can you take the light all the way to the back end of the jeep you can stick it to the underside while you work so you don't have to hold the light in your teeth or screw with where you last saw your headlamp. Now the immediate follow up question was of course...Where can I get one of those? His epic response was ebay because it was a feature on older model suburbans. Following that it was off to ebay for me and I found a virtually new light just as he told me. Now at the time of the install I was still waiting on the LED replacement bulb but have since gotten it all working with great results. 

Thats right folks innovation from twenty something years ago.

So if you're a fan of great mods with minimal install if you can even call it that check out this mod. That being said the install consisted of screwing the box into my hood and then connecting the wires. I think it took me longer to figure out which LED light to get for it than it did for him to have it in and running.
