Can anyone recommend a spotlight/work light for the rear of the truck that wont break the bank. Been looking online and some seem to be mega bucks though others are fairly reasonable.

I made one up using an 18watt sealed LED unit from flea bay, some 20mm box section and a switch from Halfords. Total cost less than £30 I guess

There's so many similar looking lights out there nowadays its hard to know whats good and whats not , Lightforce are great but not cheap , might be worth searching ebay for a used one though .

They're sealed with a decent heat sink and made from aluminium so barring a oops will last for ages. Do you have a link to what you got - I need to build a new one for the 80.

lol, we are safe - her arm is in a sling, and she is not allowed to move it for at least 3 weeks = no driving! I had the pleasure of washing her, and doing her hair this morning and the worst job ever......clipping her toe nails! Disgusting!!!!!!

The new work light made from ebay bits and random boat parts found in the shed. Pole is stainless and telescopic. Just waiting on some fittings to attach to the rear TJM wheel carrier

Think i got it from a boat jumble years ago. Had a navigation light on originally. Suited to the job and pretty heavy duty
