  19. Re: First fridge/freezer - Help me make the right decision please

    Start by buying and pulling a cable through from the main battery to your fridge. This will get you going for now.

    Re: Tent Waterproofing

    Most new tents will leak, especially the single wall nylon ones.

    Get one of these and seal your tent. Seal it well and that will be the end of it. Repeat after 2-4 years depending on your usage.

  25. Re: Lockers/Traction Control etc etc........Comparison??

    I disagree. With "sway bar disconnect" I believe a Rubicon has the best, of the showroom floor, front end flex of any 4x4 on the road today.

    That is why the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is such a capable 4x4

    1. SFA

    3. Good flex
    4. Decent tires

    I believe that the flex is the thing that gives...

    Probably a power supply issue.
