    Where did your Jeep take You this Week?

    Rat's nest is putting it mildly. What really concerns me are those hot busses. Trying to decide when to start and how far to take it. The rig really needs to be taken down to the frame, cleaned up, and painted.

    Where did your Jeep take You this Week?

    Thanks, Yeah - not my idea of a good time; but it did convince me to do what I've been wanting to do for a couple years - rip all that high tech crap out.

    Where did your Jeep take You this Week?

    Thanks. OK - here goes (admin - feel free to move it if you so deem) This is about the product and the application, not the company - they were helpful. I believe KH had a head start (pun intended). During one of the transition builds of my jeep the decision was made by a 3rd party interest...

    Where did your Jeep take You this Week?

    Here's a couple pictures from the Sorrel River Lodge on 128 outside Moab. These were taken Tuesday during Easter Jeep Safari. We were planning on staying the entire week, but the sPod controlling ignition, start, and fuel pumps quit. I did manage to jumper around it, but felt it too risky to...

    Garmin Map Share

    Thanks Mike. I just got off the phone with Garmin Product Support and they walked me through the system. I'm looking at the 66i, I carry a SAT phone with me and it's worked great for comm - either voice or text. There's a Lowrance in my Jeep, that handles nav and mapping. The 66i looks like...

    Anyone using Garmin Map Share? If so, which device is it paired to? Is it reliable, what are the major complaints? Thanks

    Where did your Jeep take You this Week?

    We do get a front row seat! The places for spectators to view the race are limited. I only know the start/finish infield course and that section out in Jean. The majority of the 100 miles is closed to the public. There are a few utility access roads which cross the course, and those all have...

    Dual Alternator Setup

    Yes - and thanks for the suggestion. I have a smaller version, but we are looking to increase capacity. We are replacing the inverter with a higher output as well. The cameramen carry extra batteries, but the ability to charge them is a definite plus.

    Dual Alternator Setup

    Napa Valley CA I think we've resolved the question of two and supported the case for having the spare close by; if not on the jeep, at least in the support truck or trailer. Shouldn't be hard to buy, but I run a high output - and try to buy anything these days. It's either out of stock, back...

    Dual Alternator Setup

    The Not disagreeing - but it has to be the correct bolt pattern for the mount; and sadly, parts houses aren't stocking parts like they used to. Thanks for the input guys, but that's not the situation I'm talking about. I like the failure rate of one in 20 years; I don't know that I've ever...

    Dual Alternator Setup

    Good points, thanks for taking the time to respond. True - on my rig an alternator is probably one of the easiest components to change We are in the process of redesigning and building storage compartments - I'll make sure there's a spot for an alternator True - but if/when it dies, I'm done...

    Dual Alternator Setup

    Thanks, but I think you missed my reason - it's not about output, it's about not having to stop and change one. Plus, if I'm going to carry it as a spare - I might as well mount it - like I did the fuel pumps. Before you guys get carried away with, "why not have dual tires, dual drivelines...

    Dual Alternator Setup

    Well, as my wife says about shopping - "It's never a question of need - it's want." Actually there's a couple reasons. Redundancy is one, convenience is another. There are a number of electrical components on my jeep besides the basics of fuel pumps, engine fans, lights, etc. There's a Luna...
