    The smaller cigar sized ones are bright enough and there's no place to store the huge mag-lights. Any suggestions? It gets dark so damn early I still have 60 stops after dark...

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    Throw the big light in front of dash where the speednometer is, should be plenty of room up there.

    All you need is some zip ties, a bungee chord, and a screw driver

    Or take peak off like me

    Ask your management team for a flashlight. UPS will give to you all the tools they think you need to be successful.

    The one on the DIAD is all I have ever had?
    It never occurred to me to spend my own money, in order to make less money.

    Well it's not like you can't use it for other things. Camping, hunting, tunneling for gold, etc...

    I don't use flashlights but I've seen some flashlight hats at Home Depot that look pretty cool. My wife a couple years back bought me some kind of light that blinks to wear around my neck so I wouldn't get shot working in the dark. It was a good idea and I wore it for a while but left it in the truck and it got stolen.

    Is that what she told you?
    Wouldn't that have made you an easier target?

    Can't go wrong with an eagletac flashlight. Brilliant light. Well worth the money. You wouldn't believe the output for its size.

    Black & Decker SL3WAKB LED Alkaline Spotlight. $20 on Amazon. 4 AA batteries lasted all winter. Fits perfectly in the large cup holder.

    I use a huge mag light and I can see house numbers from the street with it. I use a belt holder with it.

    Get a small Surefire flashlight. I keep mine either in my cup holder or in a holster made just for it.

    I don't work off the clock and I don't spend my $$ to help ups get me off the clock faster!

    If your management team doesn't provide you with a flash light you don't need it!

    Work safe everyone!
