Re: Loganbeere's Ghost Build

I asked for another FJ for my birthday but the wife got me this instead.



It looks like a pretty cool shovel for when I need to dig myself out.

As a bonus she also ordered me the Dometic CFX-40US fridge so now I can put the dual battery to use.
Pretty sure that shovel could come in handy against zombies too. :surprise

Got any idea yet where your fridge will be mounted?

Passenger side in the back because that's where I placed the 12V port coming from my second battery. Not sure how to secure it yet. Planning on doing longer road trips this year so the fridge will come in handy. How do you like the Indel B so far? I looked at the Indel B but some people on Tacoma world complained about the lid not closing tight.

Cool, similar to mine. The Dometic looks like a good option with some nice features. My Indel B is doing great so far, but the exterior is a little cheap feeling IMO. But for the price I'm not complaining at all. Not sure what thread you saw that in but I've stopped watching some of them. Thanks for the heads up on the lid, I didn't know that. Mine seems fine. I've been getting lazy and leaving the fridge in the FJC full-time instead of taking it out after trips. I only power it when I use it though.

Re: Loganbeere's Ghost Build

My ghetto fridge strap down setup:

I received notice today that my Dometic fridge is arriving this Friday so I came up with this cheap rail system to strap down the fridge.

First to Home Depot to get some wood


Cut them down to 40in and screw on some fasteners





Takes 2 mins to clip them onto the 4 factory hold down loops in the rear



Once the fridge gets here I will know where to place these on my wooden rail system. These are what the straps will go through.



Then strap the fridge down with these


Total cost about $20
Easy to put on and take off
Will it work?

Wow that is a nice setup. I have to get the fridge first. Thank you. I will let you know if I need your help. I'm gonna bolt down the wooden piece so it is more stable.

Re: Loganbeere's Ghost Build

Went out on the trail with the wife today and had some fun. One of the benefits of this snorkel is that I don't have to turn the snorkel head around when doing this...




Went through a small water crossing with snorkel but didn't get a picture. A spectator on the other side took a picture of us.

Re: Loganbeere's Ghost Build

Any update on economy and power with a new filter please.
Changed engine air filter 2 gas tanks ago. MPG is back to normal. No power loss. Checked inside the air box after some mudding and a water crossing and it was completely clean and dry. No dust to speak of.

:rocker:try to reserve 1 weekend for installation and don't get frustrated. Lots of clips, bolts and fasteners to find and remove. And buy some fasteners where the plastic wheel liners attach to the fender. You have to break these to take the fender apart.

Loganbeere's Ghost Build

My Dometic fridge arrived today. Packed very well. The unit appears solid overall. Handles and lid feels sturdy. I decided to bolt down these railings I made earlier to make them more steady and strapped the fridge down. I will likely go camping next week and see how well it works.


If anyone is interested the cheapest place I found the unit was below. Arrived by FedEx in timely fashion
