Ed, an ARB or a Dometic fridge will be great for you and your family over the long run. They cost about 2-3 times what a good ice chest costs ($800) but, my gets used at home daily for chilling mineral water and for use as an additional freezer as the Dometic 65 quart dual zone fridge has a freezer compartment. Perfect for short camping trips.


My CV radio also needs to be replaced with a cab/ham channel unit and a new Firestick antenna.

Here is my chance to provide some interesting things about off roading in Baja.
Agree about the Dometec. We have a CFX 50 (50l) for our camping trips. Good investment because between camping trips is serves us for extra freezer space. 12v and 110V unit.
We also have a CDR-11, (10.5l) 12volt only for day trips. Fits behind the seat and is for keeping lunch and drinks cool for our regular biweekly desert trips. The 11 has the exact same control features as the 50, which is good to prevent vehicle battery discharge.
Both require an add-on 10A 12V circuit connected directly to the battery.

About radios forget the marine radio because of very low output and limited frequency choices. Get a Ham radio with the mod to add full spectrum use. I have a Yaesu FT-2900R radio, replaced by the latest version FT2980R. I think 10 of the guys I wheel with in Baja are using the 2900R. Great value.
GigaParts also sells the radio with the MARS Mod Level 3 to open up all the frequency spectrum.
Read here about location of antenna for Jeeps
https://www.jk-forum.com/forums/jk-cb-ham-radios-128/here-wh...
Forget about Firestick and go with a conventional VHF whip antenna 5/8 DB with NMO mount. Firestick units are specific for CB radios. Any HAM vendor will fix you up correctly.
Do the above regarding radios and you will be able to talk to all the rest of us who have the proper equipment.

Hi everyone,

I have been silent on this thread recently, because I am waiting for my wife's scheduled thyroid procedure next month. She has difficulties dealing with heat and some fatigue, but her condition should turn around later this fall. Regardless, I am planning a week-long trip with her to the TJ-ENS area in the Jeep in late July to check out some taco establishments and to celebrate my 50th birthday. I will keep everyone posted with regard to her eventual thyroid recovery and whether or not she will join me on this adventure.

I've run and ARB fridge for years, the wife just told me how much she loves that dam think. Pretty much lives in her SUV and she can plug it in and shop when she wants! More info on the new jeep, I'm super tempted to sell my scrambler for a new JK! Getting to where A/C and a hard top would be nicer then the V8 and crazy rock crawling ability..

Thanks David. I'm sure that she will improve right away.




Advrider - the back of my TJ gets a little cramped. Here is my Dometic 65 quart dual zone fridge with on-board air and the Garvin Wilderness Rack tire carrier open.

Yep. He took a big hit on all the extras. Didn't hurt him too much because he already bought a new one.

Thanks for the info, you got one heck of a deal on that ride! Anyone looking for a serious street legal, rock crawling v8 powered scrambler? LOL, I see a JK in my future... Two more years and I'll be retired and can play anytime..
