    Do any of you have them?

    The ones i am talking about are mounted on/in the A pillar of the cop cars and can be moved with the handle on the inside.

    I think they are sweet, and would work great for the quick look down a loading dock, or the side of a driveway, ect, ect...

    Some ranchers/farmers around here actually have them mounted right above their rear view mirror on the roof...and i bet that they are handy as hell.

    Do any of you know where a guy could get his hands on one?


    Thanks

    Nathan

    it kinda sucks cause you have to drill threw your a post to mount it.....I like the go lights I'm thinking about geting one for plowing and taking it off when not in use.

    They work great, just make sure you know what your doing when installing it or pay someone to do it.

    Unity is the brand of spotlight that you want if you're looking for a post mounted unit. Google Unity, should be able to beat all the prices posted so far.
