Golight install on Exped

Well I bought a GoLight for my patrol truck (09 Eped) with some old gift cards from West Marine. The light arrived monday and I installed it last night when I came on duty.
It took me about 2hrs...it would have gone faster but I had to fab my own mount.

I did not want to hard-mount it right away before I knew where I wanted it. I made a quick, easy, cheap mount that bolts between the two cargo bows. Its really solid. I even used the roof hole where I ran my lightbar wires...so no more drilling holes in the roof.

I used it A LOT last night and really like it.
I found that my light tracks much faster than the vids I see on youtube. Maybe they have a different model.


I attached a few pics becase as we all know...pics or it didnt happen.
(I have since taken care of the wire thats going all crazy on the roof)

Thanks!

Well I wanted a spotlight and we were supposed to get them "next month"....then "next month"...and now I have been here 2 yrs with no spotlight.

So I decided to cash in my gift cards from west marine and take care of the situation.

Also this has no extra holes drilled in the truck (since I used my lightbar wire hole)

I would prefer a "normal" spotlight but this was cheap w/the gift cards and so far I have no complaints.

lol its not too bad

I usually work evenings/nights....I keep it on during the day to prevent "sun fade" of the lens plastic. When I come on duty, I pull it off and keep it off all night until the end of my shift.

I've had the same problem with this light mounted on the pulpit rail of boats. Always covered with I need it and the sea is sloppy!
