Re: Help me choose a refrigerator
I have the older Engel with the metal case and it was set behind the driver's seat with the rear seat back folded down and the rear seat bottoms removed. I don't have any photos of it unfortunately. This is a photo from member Corey and his build with the older ARB which is the same thing as mine as Engel built them both. It shows pretty much how they fit in the one direction in the back seat. Mine was a little tighter because I had the Tuffy drawer so it could only slide back so far. I had to remove the handle on the one end because it poked the driver's seat. This is from Corey's build thread. If you use the google search option and put in "_______fridge/freezer back seat fj cruiser" with the name of the fridge brand to start it may bring up photos of other fridges in FJs. I just used "Corey ARB fridge fj cruiser" to find this picture as I knew he had this setup because it is what I followed with mine.
My fridge set right at the edge of the top of the folded down rear seat back. I plugged it into an always hot 12v outlet of which I had two installed at the bottom rear of the console. I had a dual battery setup in the FJ and with both batteries isolated from each other I let the fridge run up to about 5 days without it draining the battery.
Go ahead, skin it! Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens...
I'll ride in on a sunny day, Sing you a song, steal your heart away Like a cowboy Hang my hat like I'm here for awhile Kick off my boots and drive you wild Like a cowboy Well baby you know I can't stay long You wake up, I'll be gone Until then I'll hold on Like a cowboy.
