Nice review. You've got me second guessing my Yeti purchase. ;)

Nah, I was actually in on a group buy of the ARB fridge, but we decided for OUR use, having frequent access to replenish ice, we'd wait until we had more of a need for one. Like with a trailer.

I have a perfect spot ready for the 63qt ARB.. but money and stuff. I want to replace my cooler with one and then have some front runner boxes where my cooler was.

@tzorb We powered it off the factory battery at first, then upgraded to a dual battery setup later on. We found that it would run about 2-3 days if the ambient air was below 80. Above that and it starts to run a lot.

Good review! I've had the same fridge for about 3 years now, and if it quit I would replace it immediately.
I take mine in the truck, (I am a long haul trucker).
I also have a large canyon cooler ice chest for river raft trips, which is nice but for vehicle supported trips you can't beat a fridge.
I just take it out of the truck and slide it in the rear hatch of the jeep, when we take a 4x4 trip.
