    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Did you just drill out holes to go over the existing bolts / washers and then drilled new holes for the track? Was contemplating that, but that would mean drilling into the lift track somewhere most likely. Guess it’s the lesser of available evils..

    Gotcha. Yeah like so many things with the UM it’s “wish I’d have thought of that before I got it installed” ;

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    Yeah deep down I know that’s the right solution.. guess I’m just dreading the process... How did you support the top while you unbolted one side?

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    About to install some basic front runner rails on the roof. Before I commit and start drilling’... Tempted to run the rails between the bolts / washers that hold the hinge / strut hardware and the first “rib” of the roof (red line in pic... not tape measure). That way I can avoid drilling into...

    Adventures of Hodor, A Gladiator Build Thread

    Chris @venture4wd has an episode where he was staying in a OK4WD rig (Tacoma?) with an AluCab. Had a pretty trick little propane fireplace in the back wall. I don’t recommend watching unless you want to spend money. He also tried another one of their rigs that was fully fitted out with Goose...

    Adventures of Hodor, A Gladiator Build Thread

    Stunning! First Gladiator build that’s got me tempted to switch from the JK. Any more pics on how the inside is set up!

    Jeep got broken into last night - service manual (+reg and insurance) stolen

    Well... sure enough found my stuff dumped down the street. Found the manual, but all the receipts and reg / insurance cards gone. They also tossed aside a perfectly good tire gauge (thankso for that back), and... get this one... they threw away a roll of toilet paper that was in the center...

    Jeep got broken into last night - service manual (+reg and insurance) stolen

    Yeah parked outside the house. Seems like the street has had a rash of these things. Just grabbing loose stuff from cars they can get into.

    Jeep got broken into last night - service manual (+reg and insurance) stolen

    With everything we’re all dealing with, and then a bunch of personal crap in the past couple of days... this was really the cherry on top. Fingers crossed they tossed the owner’s manual in the trash and kept the misc crap they got, and that’s that. Appreciate everyone’s replies here.

    Jeep got broken into last night - service manual (+reg and insurance) stolen

    They got the registration, insurance card, and owners manual. It’s a 2016. Believe the key is chipped... ? Awesome timing.

    Jeep got broken into last night - service manual (+reg and insurance) stolen

    Anyone know if I’m at risk of thieves making a key with all the info they stole? I’m sure it’ll be censored, but ******** the people doing this crap during all of this. Hope karma comes back and kicks them in the ass.

    Victron 75/10 not receiving power from battery

    Yup, just got it working. Was a mixture of watching an old install video, not seeing the Bluetooth, and plain old user error. Thanks for the response though!

    Victron 75/10 not receiving power from battery

    Have wired battery to sc, then sc to solar. Get a solid blue LED for power from the panels. Nothing else. Metering the the connections controller side, I get ~14v coming from battery. ~16 volts from panel. Any ideas?

    GZ 100W > Victron 75/10 > Battery: Final wiring questions

    Ah okay cool. Thanks for the heads up! Anything else learned from (I assume) a similar setup?

    GZ 100W > Victron 75/10 > Battery: Final wiring questions

    Awesome, thanks @dreadlocks. Appreciate the help! EDIT: I did find some already pre-fused 12AWG wire with connectors and matching SAE plug. Would save me a couple bucks. Still do the trick?

    GZ 100W > Victron 75/10 > Battery: Final wiring questions

    Ah sorry, yeah I meant 10AWG just from the controller to the battery. The SAE plug is already wired with 10AWG, so I was just continuing the trend. For extension to the panel (when it’s not on the roof), I’ll just be using that GZ 8mm to SAE lead (And 8mm extension cable if needed). Re: fuse...

    GZ 100W > Victron 75/10 > Battery: Final wiring questions

    Trying to wrap up all these loose ends (pun intended I guess) on solar install. Have a Goal Zero 100W panel and Victron 75/10 Smart Controller in my possession, and a handful of things in my amazon cart. Goal Zero 8mm Female to SAE Connector...

    Goal Zero Boulder 100 to trickle charge single battery...

    Awesome thanks for that. Can get lost in the sea of threads about various controllers etc. appreciate the advice!

    Goal Zero Boulder 100 to trickle charge single battery...

    As the title says... Running a Dometic CFX35 in the Jeep off a single battery. Does fine when I’m on the move daily. But if it’s parked for a while it starts to drain. In an ideal scenario, I’d be considering hard mounted renology panels on the roof - in a addition to a dual battery setup -...

    Ursa Minor Pop-Top Jeep JK

    I have the compact batwing, and love it. But not sure I’d recommend it based on your needs. Hard to really gauge in these pics, but I’d suggest it’s best suited for 2 people. Maybe the full size would work? Still though... a classic awning will likely give you way more usable floor space.
