Re: What did you today for your BOV/how did you prepare your BOV

Just got some new General Grabber A/Tx tires on my Suburban. The old tires (Bridgestone Dueller A/T) still had tread left on them, but they were very old and the previous owner stored the truck outdoors, so I decided to replace them just to be on the safe side. So far I've only driven from the shop...

Re: Questions about power inverters

I also want to put in a dual battery system. I would assume that would greatly benefit this set up too. An upgraded alternator would be more useful if you want sustained power, since that is what drives the maximum sustained power level. An additional deep storage battery would of course add to run...

Re: Questions about power inverters

The first thing you need to do is check the size of your alternator. The math is simple an 85 amp alternator at 12 volts = (85 amps x 12 volts) 1,020 watts. That is the most power the inverter can put out for a sustained period. If you hook it to the battery it may be able to supply more power, alb...

Re: Questions about power inverters

I'm trying to figure out what I could use it for in a bug out or getting home? That would be applicable. I guess if I welded I could run a small welder off of it or power tools? Can't really think of anything other than handheld devices that a small inverter would charge or run anyway. But I guess ...

This is on sale at less than half price. And is sort of a combination of discreet tactical and normal backpack. It is made by 5.11 and is called "tactical". But it doesn't look that tactical to me. It has fabric molle just on the top. No place else. And comes in a subdued color. Or light blue. 5.11 ...
