    Easy Fridge attachment to factory cargo advice (lx470)

    You could do it with a couple of pieces of aluminum flat if you copy my construction method in my first post with that Tortuga wood or starboard needed. Just lay them flat across the top of the L shaped side pieces, then fasten with U bolts. Sent from my Nokia 7.1 using Tapatalk

    Easy Fridge attachment to factory cargo advice (lx470)

    J-bolts are what I used but I'd recommend using U bolts if you can. After a while I would notice my fridge start to shift a bit, causing some introspection on what would happen in the case of a crash or rollover (that's one reason I went away from a heavy fridge and slide). U bolts will be more...

    Use the third row seat mounts and some hardware store U-bolts. Here's a slide I built, you could probably do the same using an adapter plate.

    Roadshower vs zodi extreme

    Well you really only need to boil 1 or 2 liters and fill the rest of the bag with cold water. There's temp calculators online that tell you how much to mix so you get the perfect temp shower. Sent from my Nokia 7.1 using Tapatalk

    Roadshower vs zodi extreme

    Nemo Helio and hot water from the camp stove. It takes only a few minutes to heat up about 2 liters of water in my MSR windburner stove, then mix with cold water in the Helio. 3 gallons of nice 120F water is the result. Packs down a lot smaller than any of the options mentioned above, can also...

    Animal strikes and brush bars

    That rule applies to the first, second and fourth worlds too, as far as I'm concerned. Especially for recreational travel where you can make the choice to drive only during daylight hours unless of course there's an emergency..... A set of lights with a broad beam pattern and some self-control...

    Can the iPad really be used as an out-of-signal range, off-road GPS device?

    What I'm hoping for is some consolidation in this market that's really fragmented right now- this causes frustration for people like me that want an easy all-in-one solution, and refuse/don't have money to spend on a dedicated high end device like a Lowrance or i276cx or that new Garmin tablet...

    Can the iPad really be used as an out-of-signal range, off-road GPS device?

    I'm actually banking on that happening (Google snapping up Gaia) because after using all of these apps my ultimate fallback is still Google. It's an all in one solution - trip planning in My Maps, offline map storage and overlay of custom route or POI inside GMaps, onroad navigation, and finally...

    Kitchen Kit/Chuck Box

    My kitchen kit has evolved arguably the most out of all of my kit, including even the vehicle itself. My first setup was a pair of Really Useful Boxes, one each for pantry and kitchen along with a $20 butane stove and a cheap tool roll for all my baller Asian store utensils. Then I replaced the...

    Radio in Italy

    Pick up a couple of Motorola i576 or similar PTT cellphones off eBay. Make sure to get ones with Nextel SIM cards in them, not because you need cell network or service but simply to keep the PTT feature active. In my experience these work really well in dense urban areas for upto a 0.5 mile...

    ARB JACK vs. Hi-Lift Jack

    The passion in this thread is great, and interesting perspectives on the merits of the age old solution vs the new. It would all be worth it if the ARB product were priced even remotely close to any other alternative. It isn't a game changer that warrants the price, that's for sure. But what we...

    Can the iPad really be used as an out-of-signal range, off-road GPS device?

    This and similar products have worked really well for me: They cut the glare to a degree that makes the ipad usable in anything but direct sunlight outside the vehicle.

    Knockoff iKamper

    I believe iKamper is made in Korea and is very high-quality. The knockoff has clever Korean lettering on the title logo but is actually located in China....go figure....
