It is a fun area. I think I'll head back up there, once the snow melts a bit more. I think most of the trail should be snow free by the end of the month. (except for the Saxon Mtn. trail. It gets up over 13,000 ft)

Thanks! we gotta meet up and do a photoshoot! I may try to make it depending on how work goes. Won't be making it to MOAB and the RTT won't be here in time for Slick Rock, so I'll definitely have to get another trip in between.

On a side note, do you get a lot of noise/resistance from your RTT? Mine will be high up ( above the cab ) I'm running a Yakima Basket in front on the OEM rack. I was thinking of making another fairing to go on the RTT itself.

What tent are you getting Alex?

My RTT sits above my cab as well. I have no real wind noise, and just a little wind resistance. i'm running an ARB RTT just like Brandon H.

A little bit, but not much. Mine is also above the cab. Gas mileage is definitely affected when It is on. I try and take it off when im not using it.

Found something on Reddit that you guys might be interested in. (I know it's a Jeep and that's just horrible, but you get the point)

A guy made a shower that uses a small pump and his stock heater controls and such on his Jeep. The album of pictures is below and there is a link to a video of it under the album link.

Very cool, I would like a system like this at some point, does not seem overly complex to put together.

I would just exchange the keg for a new one and screw the shower part

Just kidding (maybe not) but I would like to see your set up once finished, especially if you used a beer tap!

^^ Don't those need more ventilation to the exterior of the vehicle? Batteries can give off gases when they are charging. Would suck to be inhaling them.

My grandpa had a caddilac and it's stock battery was under the back seat. It had a vent tube on it that connected to a hole in the floor so any gas given off exits outside the vehicle.

Some batteries have a spot to hook up a vent tube. It's a plastic nipple thing on the casing of the battery.

Edit: Something to this effect...
