Any way you can send me a pic of the bed of your truck ? I would love to see how that roll bar looks
Are you talking about my sig pic? I think what your seeing is my tires cause i took that pic right after i got it lifted and hadn't unloaded the old tires yet.

Back on topic I have a RA Clicky that i paid like 200$ for. it puts out a true 200 lumen, is completely customizable with strobe. I carry it at all times because its too hard to get a Concealed Carry permit in CA and a quality flashlight can be a lifesaver.

if it was very dark and you needed it to save your life..i bet i could sell you one for $700.

i love surefires. my brother SWAT team ordered a bunch of the ones pictured. i wanted to steal one, but the irony stopped me.

i have a few less expensive models. there is no substitute. i did a huge deer hunting hike. 5 guys. 2 surefires. at the end of the trip, we only had petzl headlamps and those two surefires working. everything else broke. my surefire got passed around like a drunken promdate.

I have yet to find a flashlight that works very well outdoors during the daytime with no shadows around.

LoL...actually, i do have a 35w HID flashlight.. its pretty big.. lasts about 1 hr on full power and then 1.5 hours on the lower power (20w?) which is really no different...

I also own a 50w HID flashlight.. its a bit longer.. lasts ab out 1.5hrs on full power and about 1.7hrs on the lower power (~35w). which again, is really no different...

also will be purchasing this:
http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php?314482-Pocket-Rocket-8th-run-XM-L

this would have been my second 'pocket rocket' but i let my sis use my 7th run and it got stolen while she was training in the police academy -_-

i spend alot on lights

That is definitely a lot of money for a light but it's not an average light. I spent about $180 on a Surefire E2D LED Defender and feel it was worth every penny. I use the light all the time and it blows away all other lights I've ever used.

For the money I feel you probably get more bang for your buck with Fenix lights but it's hard to beat a Surefire if you can justify the price.

If I had a need for a 800 lumen light I would absolutely consider buying it.

dealextereme's numbers are way off...

i bought two lights from them and they work as decent little glove box lights...I ended up giving them away.

it was this light but only had one mode.

http://www.dealextreme.com/p/ultrafi...-1-14500-50122

I would rate it around 50-60 lumens...no where near 350. Be carefull of stuff that is super cheap.

I prob have 1800 bucks in Surefire products, yes I will say they are expensive but they are the best of the best... We all spend 3 to 5k more money vs a Chevy Colorado or a Ford Ranger why.. We all know Quality.. Same reason I have two weapon lights that cost over 400 a piece.. When I need to use them my life is in jepordy and when I go to use it I know it will work.. That is why the US Navy Seals and every other military branch uses them.. I know the last thing Bin Laden got to see.. The blinding light of a Sure Fire!!
