Greetings to all.....
my FJ did not come with the 115V/400w power outlet mounted in the rear of the truck. I was wondering if there is a aftermarket kit and also if it is easy to install. Will I need to get a harness or is what I need behind the panel where the factory puts it.
Any help is welcomed. I did use search but could not find my answer.
Thanks mucho.....:bandit:

You can google power inverters and see what's out there. There are better units then what the factory provides.

X3 get an after market, cuz the factory one isn't really good for anything other than charging stuff, meaning you can't run a fridge off the power outlet.:bigthumb:

My FJ didn't come with one either, then again I didn't want to pay extra for a crap inverter.
In a few weeks, I will be installing a 1500W continues Xantrex Inverter into my FJ and I will be wiring it to a stock Switch and Plug. I will also run extra outlets to the front. I will do a write up once I have all the parts and have my FJ back from some special secret work.

Is that right? Woody, from the trail team, had an ARB fridge at Boulder Creek off road park in Texas the weekend of the 15th. I'm pretty sure he was using the stock power outlet.

ARB fridge draws very little current so it's not a good challenge for the factory inverter.

That's exactly what I've got planned as well. So, I'll be looking forward to your write-up to guide me through it. :cheers:

Parts should arrive on the 26th and I should get my Fj back sometime next week. You guys have no idea how much is going to be done to this poor beast before the Summit. Lets just say that there isn't much time and I need to hustle. Keep an eye out for a crap load of pics and posts from me really soon.
I'll post two pics tomorrow for a small sneak peek of all my upcoming projects.

Feel free to stop by and help me install a bunch of stuff too (if you're buying.)
