    Fridge/Freezer Wireless Thermometer

    MetalTech lists this wireless remote fridge thermometer from IronMan 4x4, but they are out of stock until February. Unlike the ARB remote, which is hardwired, this one will work in any fridge, with a wireless RF transmitter in the fridge or freezer compartment, running on three batteries. I...

    Solar In The Desert

    I am adding a solar panel (100W Renogy mono) in an attempt to keep my AGM batteries happier than they have been. Just got off the phone with Ctek tech support re using a D250SA (new model) as my controller for a three-battery system (one starter and two house). The question of the moment is...

    Italian F-250

    Just saw this parked at a shop in So Cal, so I grabbed some pics and talked with the mechanic. It's an F-250 Super Duty that was mostly built up in Italy by Brunatti in Turin. Brunatti seems to be mostly a Toyota shop, but I found some other makes with a Google search. Interesting set of...

    Anyone Using Mastervolt AGM Batteries?

    Since I am thinking seriously about replacing all three batteries in my truck (one Odyssey and two Optimas), I'm evaluating the alternatives. Was talking yesterday with a guy who installs and repairs marine electrical and electronic systems and he told me I should go with Mastervolt AGMs. They...

    I'm getting ready to possibly replace all three batteries in my Power Wagon, and that prompted a call today to Northstar. Found out that they are planning to introduce Bluetooth-enabled batteries at SEMA in November. Batteries will allow you to monitor state of charge in real time on your...

    Mounting ARB Rack to Fiberglass Shell

    I am thinking about upgrading my rack system because I have been consistently overloading my current setup. The best size for my situation is the big ARB alloy rack, #4900010M, 87"x49". I want to mount it directly to the top of my cab-high SnugTop fiberglass shell. So far, so good. ARB does...

    WTB: Pull-Pal

    Anybody have a Pull-Pal they want to sell? I have an RW9000, so could use another for double pulls. Or, could use an RW11000, RW14000, or even an RW16000 if price is right. Preference is for the RW14000. I'm in So Cal and get to AZ with some frequency, so anything between L.A. area and Yuma...
