    Experiment a bit with your thermostat setting to find it's exact point that is just above freezing (it won't always be "33" on the display, on different units it can vary +/- a few degrees). Keep...

    I built the frame for mine from thinwall rectangular steel tubing. Partly because it was something I already had laying around (a large EZ-Up folding canopy that was damaged from wind), but also...

    I would suggest running another ground cable (same size as your positive cable) straight from your primary battery to the frame also.

    Without that, I could see current trying to find it's way down...

    How big is the rack? If it's big enough (thinking 4x7 feet or bigger for a CB ant) it might be able to serve as it's own ground plane (you would still want to run at least one ground strap to the...

    The bumpers on my BII are all 1/8" box tubing (with reinforcements in key spots for strength). I actually dropped about 5-10 pounds up front over the stock bumper (not including the winch of course),...

    I had Goodyear MT/R-Kevlars on mine before my BFG KM2s... the Kevlars were noticeably quieter. Unfortunately I had to get rid of them because they became very out of round (they were warrantied......

    Agreed on the 1/8" for your sliders.
    On mine I added a "bash strip" (1" wide x 1/8" thick) along the bottom edge making that area 1/4" thick total. To this day I have yet to bend or dent them, even...

    Aluminum is just as good of a ground plane as steel (infact, it's probably a better ground plane, as aluminum has greater conductivity than steel). The caveat is you just can't stick magnetic-mount...

    It takes a lot of energy to make ice (probably a couple hundred watts to have any significant quantity of ice in a reasonable amount of time, well above the ability of a normal 12v fridge/freezer)......

    I think that's more rooted in what gear ratio you run in your axles (no doubt, smaller, faster-revving engines are more affected by the RPM decrease from bigger tires than big engines are). If you...

    You'll find a manual trans most often in 1st-gen ('91-'94) Explorers, majority of which were 2-door Sport models, but there's some number of 4-doors with them too. Finding manuals gets progressively...

    I recall my BII being rated 22 hwy by the epa, yet I've gotten over 26 from it before I put on the lift & 35" tires (even now, it still can get low-20s hwy). Aside from driving habits, probably the...

    6000K in a LED is going to create huge amounts of glare without much useable light (very strong bluish output on those, about the very last thing you want in rain or fog).

    3500-4000K would be much...

    The WX function on a CB is dismal at best. Pretty much exactly how Martinjmpr describes it (big part of the problem is the CB antenna it's hooked to is not tuned for reception on VHF).

    They draw about 3.5 - 4.5 amps when the compressor is running (and is why some cig-lighter sockets cause trouble with them), and about 0.05 - 0.1 amp when idle. Averaging it out it's probably a total...

    That is what I recall, yes.

    Should be able to confirm just by plugging it into 12V and checking the connections with a meter.
