    good idea, i seen the one for the 2nd gens on the side of the seat, but i have a reg. cab so i dont have the same type of seat with the plastic sides. i never would've thought to put it on the door, i'll have to check mine out and see if i have room between the door and the seat for the light once the door is closed.

    mount a recharge maglite and connect it to power window connector so you have a full charge maglite all the time.

    I mounted my 3D Mag to the right of the shifter/cupholders. I like it there as its in within arms reach, but out of the way. Sometimes if there is a "large" passenger their feet MAYYYYY hit it. But really its not in the way.
