    Default Remote control spotlight for your Jeep

    A little pricey, but I have seen them on police cars and they look pretty sharp. They fold down to make the profile a little lower and I am sure that it would help protect them when you don't really need them on the trail. You can mount them toward the middle of your hood.

    They are like 250 each. We had something like this on our vehicle with NATO. pretty sweet and they have a lower profile design than the old style police spotlights that you see mounted by the front window. Everyone knows that those are a dead giveaway when an unmarked car is behind you...that and no hubcabs with black stock wheels.

    I don't think that the collapsed height would be a problem when the hood is up, but I would be pissed if a branch whacked it and ripped it open / off. Maybe it could be installed with a little bar in the front to help protect it, something similar to the metal that is mounted by the turret to protect the gunner from getting his head cut off by a wire.

    Once again. I like where your heads at. My KC lights have definitely taken a beating, and if I were to invest that much mulah into a single light, I'm gonna find a way to protect it.

    I've been looking for a spotlight for when out camping and such. This is pricey, but looks nice. I like the idea of it folding down when not in use. Is this item at some other site, web page etc. where we can view it better and look at base size and such, just wondering...Thanks
    Oops, just looked at your info again and saw the link to more info,,,,My Bad!!

    They are nice looking. link to product page.

    If you are going to put it on your rig, I would try to rig up something that sticks up in the front enough to block something from whacking it off when it is folded down if it gets hit by a branch or something. Maybe a bolt or piece of metal a couple inches high that will help deflect some stuff. Try to protect the investment.

    I have read quite a bit about these kinds of spotlights and the officers always say that the range of motion is so much better than the a pillar mounted lights. I saw one that did not fold down at Boaters World for 170 bucks, but you would probably need ot fab a cover unless it is magnetized.
