  1. Leverage Rear Passenger Harness for 12v Power?

    Don't see any hostility in your posts at all. I agree you should not use that hub for power. I do think you can open that panel and use the space to put your own connection in though without touching that hub. Seems like there is enough space there and it affords easy access. Is that ok?
  2. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    Or, if your gladie has the AC outlet in the rear passenger area like mine, you could jump that outlet and run wire to the bed outlet.
  3. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    I imagine you could just buy your own inverter at whatever watts you would like, install it and direct wire to battery. Then at least use the outlet you purchased.
  4. Leverage Rear Passenger Harness for 12v Power?

    You're right it's all powered but not as we would like it to be. I believe it would cause havoc. Better to use one of the Aux switches that are fused and have relays, plus you can chose to set it as a direct battery feed or ign start only. That panel does give you good access though to wire...
  5. Battery Pack Idea for someone with means and knowhow.

    I think it would be a great spot for battery pack that could be used for various 12v electrical needs, much like a Jackery solar generator. Be nice to pull it out once you get to your camp site and plug in your 12v fridge. That would have been a better option than that dumb speaker. There are...
  6. Leverage Rear Passenger Harness for 12v Power?

    Why can't you tap into these hubs for a power source?
  7. Heater/AC blowing hot air at 60 or higher

    None of my cars since 1971 ever took more than several seconds for cool air to come out. This thing blasts hot air like a furnace for an eternity and then when finally cold it's like freezer. You need to be a magician to figure out how to adjust it. Read back to the beginning of this thread, FCA...
  8. Heater/AC blowing hot air at 60 or higher

    That's how it should work. Thank you for that, but how about when the CABIN is hot as hell and you turn on the AC for cool air as the temperature is set for 70 or lower and it blows out at you hotter than hell? That's our complaint.
  9. Heater/AC blowing hot air at 60 or higher

    We've purchased 7 new vehicles since 1978 and none until my 8th, the Gladiator, had AC issues. I figured this is one thing the Auto industry had perfected. You always hear of issues with new engines or transmissions, but AC units? Come on! How do you mess up an AC system these days? Some young...
  10. Maximus-3 trifecta of rack solutions for the Jeep Gladiator

    Yep... That's where I was for a long time but finally made another choice. Life goes on. Admittedly they are in a tough spot with that Governor of theirs. She has everything on lock down. Nuts. Lots of businesses are going to go under because of her.
  11. Protecting the paint

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M7S368L/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I use this stuff and peel it off after I am back on the black top. Its 5mil thick and does the job. Heck of a lot cheaper. Yeah, it doesn't look as pretty as the expensive professional jobs, but it...
  12. Maximus-3 trifecta of rack solutions for the Jeep Gladiator

    It's a bolt on, nothing to it really. I posted a few pictures already. The only thing I regret is not getting the black bolts. The zinc ones stand out too much. I'll get around to painting them soon though.
  13. Live or Overlanded Alaska? Need Your Help!

    Check out this guys YouTube channel. He did a few videos on his travels in and from Alaska in his Jeep overlanding vehicle. Here is another family that overlanded in Alaska.
  14. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    It's in the forum somewhere on another thread. People were trying to setup the factory option, had the parts, but couldn't program the computer to accept it.
  15. Tops! Canopy / covers / toppers / racks possibilities for Gladiator - Show me!

    Those are sure nice caps. A little expensive, but nice. Except for those big ugly clamps that hold it to the bed. Think I would rather drill the rail cap and secure it with bolts.
  16. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    Myself, I ran wire from the Aux switch feeds that are located next to the battery under the hood. Then ran my power and ground to back panel along side the frame.
  17. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    I see your point and hope it works for you. I just question running that switch right at it's limits. They have relays that could go too. Hopefully a fuse burns out first. I'm not enough of an electrician to know if a 40amp compressor can heat up and go beyond it's rating? Think I would find...
  18. No bed power? No problem! $9.99 do it yourself.

    I think for such a high amp draw for that compressor, I would have made the connection point near the front of the vehicle with Anderson plugs direct to the battery by-passing the Aux switch which has a max of 40 amps. Even most onboard air systems are wired straight off the battery. My Viar...
  19. Did the site’s formatting change for anyone else

    Well it says functions will be added, says nothing about this color scheme. They ought to explain things better if this color scheme is temporary.
  20. Did the site’s formatting change for anyone else

    I agree this new format is for the birds. Everything is grayed out and harder to read against the white background. And what happened to the "new & unread" section. I always went there first. Dear site managers, WTH... Please do something! Or do we all have to start up somewhere else?
