now who's the crack dealer?

don't you love it when you get to explain what the Engel is to someone who you know will love it.

it's a beautiful thing.

like bringing a child into the world.

I don't know, Jack.

Walt Lister makes a compelling case for this bad boy:

It's that Dometic one he linked to.

It's not unlike the tool threads. There's always some guy who must chime in with his obligatory, "Craftsman tools are the best tools around. They have a lifetime warranty."

That was a fun link.

It never ceases to amaze me how flabbergasted people are when they find out that I have a frig/freezer in my truck.

Jaws drop and no one quite gets it when I tell other responders that I can make ice in my truck.

Post hurricanes, ice tops even fuel as the item everyone is desperate for.

Thankfully, I've never had to make ice in it. However, I know it works because I've accidentally frozen all of my drinks and food inside of it a few times when I had the temp selector too low.

Mine runs just about 24/7. I keep both the 12V and the AC plug in it at all times. When I'm at home, I have an extension cord that runs inside my truck so I can keep it plugged into my house power.

As I'm sure you all know, in the highest heat, cold drinks are a necessity.

Best Regards Jamie, Blue, and Angel

lets all be honest here. if the engel had a little propane port on the side that would make it all the more bad ass. That rubber made thing is a joke but still based on a good idea.


Or let me put it this way, if Engel offered say the 40L model identical in every ay to it's current model, except it could run on propane along with 12v & 120V how much more would you pay for this feature. I's say easily $300 extra

$500 extra I'ld begin to ponder the added value.

I'm kinda digging the new MT80 unit:




If that unit had a partition for separate fridge and freezer compartments, it would be perfect. The MT80 is the same length and width as the MT60, but the same height as the 45. It would fit in the D90 nicely and still leave room for my Pelican 1660.

Funny thread ... people often ask me what my favorite mod. to my truck is and without hesitation I respond: Engel Fridge.

Great food pictures too, Jack!

Like this guy:


http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=151606


Look at all of the wasted space in his box. All of his drawers are semi-deep, and he's got stuff like wrenches and pliers in all of them. Total waste of space.

And what does he do when he buys a new wrench or plier? Does he buy another piece of foam and then cut it again? Or does he just toss them all into that junker bottom drawer?

What a rookie. Reminds of me those "Check out my 110" threads.

What's up with the socket left on the breaker bar? Did he miscalculate when cutting the foam and not want to start again?

That was probably a miscalculation on his part. It won't happen again. Now when he needs a new socket, he'll just use one of the many adjustable wrenches he has at his disposal.

Maybe he does something similar to me? I keep a socket on my breaker bar that fits my lug nuts. Socket wasn't removed from a set, I bought it just for the purpose ... mine is always kept in the truck. Oh, and I also keep a socket on my Dewalt cordless impact wrench ... same purpose, ready when needed; I just hate lengthy tire changes.
