Looks good! But I would have put the wheels off your 94 on the new one

Essentially. Battery runs down at night (not much at all) then solar panel gets hit in the morning and charges/sustains till night fall. Next trip I will really test the limits, this one I was just getting a feel for the system. Love the set up though. Getting the truck to that super useful stage I wanted.

Slick man, as always. I actually just got the cap off of mine for the weekend and seeing your truck almost makes me want to put it back on haha

I wouldn't even want my truck without the cap. Not one bit. This is my next plan. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001DE45EY

It has its purposes and I'm glad to have a cap but I'd rather have a hoist I could keep it on and then back under, drop, and clamp it on when I needed it. But on a regular basis I prefer open bed

Damn that's one fancy fridge!!

Worst part is the wiring .. I have two 8-lug terminal strips I have to disconnect before I can move the thing. I don't care for the 'build your own 8 pin plug' kits. Had one and it never wanted to work

Oh and the foam tape leftover on the bed rails is UGLY as anything

I just use the one sided weather stripping and never had an issue. Yeah I don't even know how I would begin to remove mine
