I guess theres truth to that because my wife tells me to just buy stuff already when shes seen me looking at things online for weeks lol
Lucky You! My wife sees me looking at stuff or talking about stuff and says stuff like "what about a vacation or trip?"....to which I usually respond "sure, how long can I be gone for"....she doesn't like that :blush:

Testing Soon ;)
Finally installed those Fog LED Pods.

Next-up Dual Battery system, Yaesu FTM-400XDR, Trigger 6 Shooter Controller & Ditch lights. Figured it makes more sense to go ahead and get the Dual Battery now since I planned on it eventually. This way I can get ahead of a lot of the wiring/rewiring.

Just finished running a good part of the TAT till the clutch in my Jeep started acting up, so I sprinted home (to WA from ID) before it imploded (hasn't imploded yet, but any time now).

So I've either already purchased or am about to purchase:

New clutch kit for the Jeep (probably a Centerforce 2)
New heavier flywheel for the Jeep (Centerforce 700478 Billet Steel Flywheel for 91-02 Jeep Wrangler YJ, TJ & 94-00 Jeep Cherokee with 2.5L Engine | Quadratec)
(will drop Jeep off a shop once have parts in hand)
Fuel pump started acting up (still under warranty) so got a replacement from Rock Auto (technically had to purchase it, and will be refunded the cost when I return the old one)
New steering stabilizer for the Jeep
Need new tires for the Jeep (looking at the Kanati Trail Hogs 285/75/16)
Need new tires for the trailer
Need a new axle for the trailer (one with a "camber" so the tires will wear even)

Yep, that is what it stands for. Just bought my "new to me" 2015 Jeep JKU Rubicon Hard Rock last week, and ordered parts the next day. Installed a Vector Off-Road JKE-Dock bar tonight to start mounting the electronics, that thing is solid (UPS loves my house - the wife gets more packages than I do to be fair). More parts in bound, even bought her some camping toys she was ogling at the off road shops in Portland last weekend.

My wife sees me looking at jeep stuff and says I am looking at "porn" :) Probably true, either one could cause marital issues, lol.

Mike, it's actually a 240W unit (look closely at the ad) and it's under $200 on Amazon.
I've heard good things from those Jakeries. I don't have one myself (went with the EcoRiver Pro for future expansion purposes) but if I ever needed a second power station I'd likely buy the 2000Wh from Jackery.

What does the jackery 2000 delivers better than the ecoflow delta max?

There is currently a new KS Croudfunding campain..

For me the Jackery always was cheaper as ecoflow, but too more weak in the important details.
