Some Jeeps actually came with a retractable hood light, but it was spring-loaded, like an old vacuum cleaner wire. This light has 15 feet of cord, which means you can get it to the back of your Jeep, over to your buddy’s Jeeps, or wherever. The cord retracts with a hand-crank, so you never have to worry about the spring dying and the light not retracting. Just don’t let the cord get near hot things (like exhaust). The long cord also makes it really handy to work under the Jeep at night.
