Not mine, but some very cool home built stuff that some could get inspiration from.
Ignore the car type if anti LR just check out the setup , some pretty clever design

The Ultimate home built stuff.
So insane the stability and flex.
Honoured to have driven Bill's Moguls.

Bought my first ever ARB product, fitted and working well. Its fast, not surprisingly and quieter than my mean mother 3 which has become problematic after a few uses in just one year.

Great bit of gear, I have the same unit without the tank. One of the things I like about it is that it is two seperate compressors individually wired and joined together with a manifold so you are effectively carrying a backup compressor with you all the time as it will work with just unit

I did see that, nice fail-safe and the built in pressure cut-off is 150 psi and not 100psi as I'd read before so the tank holds a significant amount of air.

The only thing left is to change the braided flexible line to copper and I'm happy I think.

I just dragged Nissan's out of trouble, both by hand and behind the mighty Pajero

I dont mind the LR to be honest and there are some good ideas in the vid.
That said I would love to get a hour or 2 in the Dodge Charger/Challenger (at least it looks like either one!) parked in his driveway :cool:;)

Started on some canopy fit out. The kitchen drawer unit is still on a slow boat from China but I have to get moving for the winter touring season. It won’t be one of the amazing looking creations I often see on the social pages. I have little need for it to be anything more than just practical. It will probably get changed around a few times to suit whatever purpose I need at the time.
The battery is behind the chest of drawers and the ctek/smartpass is behind the fridge with the dodgy clasps:p. The old evakool is now on its 4th Ute.

Installed my Big Bertha Oven on the cargo barrier, she gets pretty hot on the outside so I've also added some insulation to the top of it. My first trip away for a while will be up to H&A ranges and surrounds for Easter, so I'll give it a good workout and see how it does with a rack of lamb or similar.

I just bought a kickass then found out this has been out since about February......................DOH!

Still I just looked at the stats, with both elements going it chews about 18.5amps, thats a lot but only if your stationary I guess but then if your running other things like a fridge it will drain an AGM pretty quick.

Keen you hear your thoughts on it.

I think if I want a bigger oven for a camp I would go the companion stove oven in gas

I’ve had no problems running mine from a 100a/h lifepo4 battery when driving. I’m also running a 90 litre dual zone fridge and the usual assortment of accessories. When mobile my DCDC charger (Enerdrive) keeps up with no issues. Used the oven nearly every day on a 5 week trip to the Kimberley.

I’ll be upgrading to a 300a/h lifepo4 in the near future. That will cover me easily for the times I may want run the oven while camped.
