    Save $10 compare to Autozone. It's a must-have if you're a wrencher.

    Picked this up the other day at HF, got an email it was a "new product". It wasn't on the shelves at my HF so I had to ask and they got it from a box out back. I had previously bought something similar from Eastwood but was disappointed in the performance, the battery never held a charge so I basically had to plug it in to use it and the cord got in the way under the hood so it was basically more of a hassle to use than it was worth.

    We'll see how this one does, I charged it up today and maybe go check it out at night to see the brightness: IMG_7965.jpg

    If you want a light to work on your truck this is the one, I just picked up the new ICON 2100 Lumen Rechargeable Floodlight with the Magnetic Base. I already have the Bauer Light like this but it is only 750 Lumens. The ICON Light is double the size and the amount of light is Crazy. You Don't need to buy one of under the hood lights if you get one these.

    I started using Amazon light bars in my garage and basement. they have like an 8 pack that all connect together with very little draw. I got some GE light socket plugs to run them off the existing light switch.

    Anyone have a guestimate as to when the next big sale will be? Labor Day?

    Looking for one of the 20-25% coupons and be able to stack the 10% off if you get their CC. Pretty much set on an Icon box now.

    Probably Labor Day, last year they did 20% for the weekend before & 25% for the day of. That's what I was waiting for but it was something small & decided not to wait.

    Just a FYI, if you plan to use it yourself or already used it, that is a targeted one time use only. Meaning once it's used it can't be used again.

    HF started doing them this year, usually sent to people who haven't purchased in a while.

    Thanks. I didn't use it as nearest HF is 40 miles from me and was hoping it gets used!
