    Get the 50qt and make sure you calibrate the thermostat. Had mine running since 2012 always plugged into an outlet in the garage when I don't have it on the trails. I had to replace the LCD when that failed but ARB customer service just sent me the part for free even though it was way past the warranty. Also lost the divider and tried to purchase one but again was sent a replacement for free. 5 years of running non stop.

    50 works great for me. One of the best purchases yet.

    Wow. Good feedback so far. Not a single negative comment. I have 4 gauge wire on the WJ ran all the way back for my compressor and inverter. So I assume I could just use that as my power source correct? Just build something custom off of that?

    I have both the 37 and 50 quart and can tell you that the 50 quart is the better buy. Has the exact same footprint so it's not like you're loosing any cargo capacity in your Jeep but you do get to carry a lot more stuff in the fridge. As mentioned, you NEED to install a heavy wire and I would HIGHLY recommend the screw in plug kit that ARB sells. It has a 2 prong socket like plug and being that is screws in place, it will help to ensure a good constant contact. I had been using the cig lighter plug for years and just from the bouncing of off roading, the plug would move enough to cause arcing and burn it out. I would also recommend that you run a deep cycle battery if you don't already have one.

    Ok fine, I'll stop bucking the trend and fix mine! Maybe it will work more efficiently and I just don't know it's losing contact.
    I recently removed the rear section of seat and relocated my fridge directly behind the drivers seat. So I want a power source closer anyways.

    I forgot to mention a few other things about mine. First, you now have a great back-up fridge at home. It also makes a great beverage fridge for parties and get-togethers. Second, if you stay in a hotel you can use this in the hotel room. I spend about 2 months out of each year in a Vegas casino for work. I bring my fridge, all pre-loaded with groceries into the room and save hundreds of $$$ not eating breakfasts everyday. It's a pretty safe bet you too will find an unexpected use or three for your fridge. There is a reason they are expensive. You'll appreciate that reason after you own one.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
