    Its just a little light. Quite handy at night, you can pull it out and see stuff under the truck and so on with it :)

    Make sure before you pull it out you lift the little plastic locking lever.. That's if somebody has not broke it off already :D .IIRC it has 20 or 25ft of cord so it can reach the rear wheels with no problem..

    I wish mine had that light. Could have used it a couple times but Since the first time I was stuck in the dark I carry a 4-Dcell maglight. That and Meijers has a little light that you can plug into your cig lighter! HAs a magnet so you can stick it anywere

    That little light is so handy. After having a truck with it for almost 10 years, I was pissed when I bought my first new body style (99+) and no light. That was one of the best things about buying the Blazer. I was so pumped when I realized it was there. Seems stupid I know but I love little gadgets/
