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.
