    In terms of size, my 40 quart Engel is bigger than I need for myself.

    Budget aside, I would get an ARB or Engel, with a slight edge to ARB for their customer service. Quality pays in the long run.

    Neither one has enough room for me, so I got a Trooper. Strong like 4Runner, cheap like XJ. :D

    I have a 40 quart, and it is bigger than I need for myself. Probably would work well for a couple.

    Very nice.

    Do you carry the Oz tent inside or strap it on top? One of the reasons I shied away from the Oz tent was how long it is when folded up.

    Another cheap upgrade is to replace the sway bar bushings. For like $50 it really tightens up the handling.

    Awesome, thanks. Did you do anything special to mount it? Looks like it is 6.3" wide, so I guess a 3/8" shim on each side might do the trick. What about a bezel?

    Action Packers kind of suck IMO, they don't really do anything well. They leak in the rain, they get brittle in cold or with age, they aren't really strong enough (for my fat ***) to sit on, their...

    Anyone installed a Kenwood 281 in-dash?

    With the speaker on front this seems like a viable option. The FJC has a double din factory stereo, toying with the idea of installing a single DIN stereo and a Kenwood 281 in that space. The Kenwood...
