    2018 Jeep JLU Overland/Daily Driver Build

    Wired up a dual battery to power the newly acquired Dometic fridge, and boy, what a game changer. Odyssey 45AH AGM battery, which can safely cycle 80%, giving a usable ~33AH. American Adventure Labs has a great mounting solution for the unused storage space under the rear cargo area. Ran 6GA...

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    Dual battery for the dometic. Odyssey PC1100 with a renogy DCDC charger. Had to mount the Renogy upside down because of how the power is distributed and the locations for this particular mount. Good thing it's covered so my OCD won't kick in.

    As a Canucks fan, I don't mind if you crap into that bucket.

    Dual Battery Setup?

    The house battery will be dedicated to a fridge. Interestingly enough, Redarc and Renogy both recommend 6 gauge and 40 amp fuses for their 20/25A DCDC chargers. I was considering actually changing my setup to go that route. Did you ever have any issues with those fuses? I was reading some...

    Dual Battery Setup?

    I decided on adding a house battery, so I've ordered the following: Renogy 20A DCDC Charger (would like to upgrade to Redarc 1225 in the future, but not in the budget now) Odyssey PC1100 American Adventure Labs rear cargo bracket (Jeep JL) I was planning on a 70amp fuse and 4 gauge wire. Are...

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    Dometic CFX3 45! Added the hardwire kit, and I must say its just as easy to take out as a cooler. Fits like a glove :D

    Thoughts on vehicle First Aid/Trauma Kits

    I posted a forum topic specifically because of this. If you are OCD like me, there is a full smart assessment forum that could help you out. What First Aid Equipment Should I/You Carry?

    What First Aid Equipment Should I/You Carry?

    I created an assessment form in google docs to allow people to conduct a risk assessment of their activities to help list the correct first aid equipment. There are a lot of posts here and other on other forums of people asking what type of first aid supplies to bring on their trip. Personally...

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Working on one last thing to relocate the backup camera and have a modular system with the license plate and third brakelight.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    On another forum there has been some demand for license plate options and 3rd brake light, so that has now been changed for the updated model. So some more changes have been made.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    And with the hardware sorted, it mounts up snug as a bug to the tire. Now to find some damn water rotopaxs, because they are sold out everywhere in Canada.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Laser cut and welded up today. Need to grab hardware tomorrow to see how it mounts up. The carrier is made from 5052 H32 aluminum, so its super light. The sandwich plate is just 3/16" steel.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    You could use it for that, but I would need to centre it probably. At the moment its intended to hold a sandflag. That being said, there are some ORV areas where sand flags are required in the front of the vehicle. Would it make more sense to centre it for the option of adding a third brake...

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Me again... after working on this design for sometime to make it properly adjustable, here is what I THINK is the actual solution. That backplate gets sandwiched between the wheel and the tire carrier, and the threaded shafts are replaceable by size to adjust for your wheels backspacing. Not...

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Well I am on like the 7th edition (or something) of this design. What's really a challenge is how to mount this to the top two lugs, while ensuring it is adjustable for wheel/tire combinations and also quick/easy to remove the spare tire in the event that needs to happen. This shouldn't hinder...

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Got it all cut out, but I don't like the design for longevity, so I've added more bends and possibly hems into the design for strength. Will be cutting more material on Monday to see how that works. I may still need to punch some holes into the design for even more strength, but we will see.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    Yeah, agreed as well. On the first protoype of the original backplate, it wasn't as rigid as I'd like. Hopefully I can get some material cut in the next week for these new parts.

    Jeep JL Rotopax "Caddie"

    So I had to rethink the entire backplate to make this compatible with all wheel/tire combos. This is basically the final design before it goes to prototype. You shouldn't need those open ended lugs, this will come with a 8" extended lug nut and 2 jam hexnuts for getting a good tight seal of the...
