Default want an underhood light??


light mounted on a magnet connected to a 20' retractable extension cord, so you can move the light to where you need it, and then instantly have both hands to work.

such a good idea

My 93 Chevy Pickup and 94 Suburban had those from the factory. They'll reach all the way to the rear wheels for tire changes in the dark. They don't provide alot of light, but they do give you just enough for most stuff.

our 95 GMC Sierra also had it. I always figured it was aftermarket though. That'* cool that it came from the factory. . I need one too. 00+ cars don't have an underhood light. :(

Don't mount it to the hood like that. Mount it to the inner fender or firewall if you can find space. Even the trunk would be better than the location in that pic.

Our old Case combine had 3 of those...almost worthless on a combine.

Our new Deere has 8 infared halogen lights that shine in on itself
