I like it too, Ejipner. I just hope that your passenger doesn't have long legs, or they may beat up their knees. <insert comment about dating a supermodel>

I've been thinking about a Maglite for the Forester as well. My thought was to have it below the passenger seat, just in front of the frame. (I am thinking about installing a fire extinguisher in the same spot on the the driver's side.)

I originally was worried about passenger knees but I am 6'1" and when I tested the location I had plenty of room. I think my only issue would be if I had a big person in the front and the back seat.

The fire extinguisher idea is brilliant and I'm deffinatly going to do that

Looks good Ejipner

The only other thing I'd be wondering about, with it in that position, is the air bag

Regards
Mr Turbo

That's what I've been looking at, but I couldn't seem to find a metal mount for it... I definitely don't trust the little plastic thingy that comes with it. If you find a good solution, let us know!

Looks good, I used quick fist clamps in my old truck for my mag light.
If your looking for a good fire extinguisher mount check with Primitive! I noticed he had a mount made to go in front of the passenger seat in his mountain edition forester.
The other option is as I mentioned quick fist clamps, they come in multiple sizes!
