    Waterport, what am I missing?

    Winch wiring (Anderson and gator clips)

    Planning my winch wiring and kicking around a few ideas. I'm curious if anyone has an experience with this particular idea. Instead of wiring a switch into it I was debating of running an Anderson connector to essentially some jumper cable gator clips. I'd keep the battery gator clip section...

    Who has had both a mounted awning and a tarp style awning

    Curious who's had a mounted awning i.e. ARB vs the tarp style awning i.e. Slumberjack. I've got a half rack on my Jeep as my front panels are off a lot of the time so I'm deciding vs the two options. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
