I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post but Advance Auto Parts are clearing out a bunch of their Power Converters. I just scored a 2000 watt for $53 and just picked it up. I'll be putting it in my Gladiator next week. Hopefully this helps someone out.

And here's the 1500 watt if anyone is interested in that. It's $36.

Thank you! Just returned from picking up the last 1500 watt inverter anywhere close to me. Bought online, paypal paid, 1/2 hour later picked it up. I did call the store to make sure they really, really had my order in hand. They did, all went well.

Great deal, but I’m looking for one with a remote switch I can hook up to the aux switch.

The easiest way to do that is using one of the power relay kits for a winch. The AUX switch can be used to control the relay which would control power to the inverter. This method can be used with any inverter that uses a physical power switch, or is always on when power is applied.

Makes sense, and I wondered the same. But do they make any big enough to switch a 2000w inverter?

The power relay for a winch is more than capable for any inverter that most people would install.

Another thread on here was talking about a hood scoop for sale online. Guess one could mount it on hood under the scoop with the receptacle facing rearward.

Finding a good mounting location is not easy. If it is under the hood, heat will be a concern. Anywhere it can get wet is not good. The further it is from the battery, the larger the wires have to be. A heavy duty, outdoor rated unit under the hood is probably the best bet, but won't be cheap.

Wouldn't a Pure Sine Wave Inverter be a better direction to go ?
