I am looking to pick one up before next summer. I think I may end up with the Whynter 65 qt. model though. The ARBs are nice but $$. I might see if I can make up a half seat in the back of my Doublecab for the boy and make a nice storage/fridge mount on the driver's side. Hopefully I can get my old boss (used to do interior work) to sew up a seatcover for the half-seat. I just have to see if I can find a rear seat now. Or maybe pick the one up at a local yard from a 4Runner they have sitting around. Hmm . . . . .

Yes...something like this would work:

The next issue was my wife and I had recently purchased an EdgeStar Fridge/Freeze vs. the ARB for cost reasons. The problem is this thing was large.
When I say large mean it would take up half the back seat when in use. This wasn't working for me so I decided to do something about it.
First I removed the seat bottom, then the seat back, then the plastic crap taking up more room.

Was left with something like this:


So I made a rack to host some secure tie-down points:


Bolt in to factory seat mounting locations:





Then reversed the hinges on the fride so I could tuck it closer to the back of the cab and not need room for the lid to clear when opened:



Swapped out the handles for some brackets made of angle:



Then mounted it in the truck:







Relocated the latch:



Floor storage still works:



All in all I gained tons of interior storage back by removing the seat and other crap.

Then executed project "no more holding the fridge open with one hand while you dig for shit in the fridge with the other!"

My 'mount is just strapping it down to the seat with the seatbelts on most occasions. I USE IT ALL THE TIME! Just got back from 4 days in Death Valley. One of the top 3 accessories I have purchased. RTT, Frige and Winch.

How is this fridge as far as power draw ? Do you need to be conscious of leaving it on with a single battery ?

I can go about 12 hours or so. The fridge shuts down before the battery is drained to the point that you would not be able to start it.

Well the only problem is everything else will have to be frozen unless you buy a dual zone unit. There is this one http://www.amazon.com/Whynter-FM-62D.../dp/B008VX01P2 and another make but I can't think of who makes it and it is $$$.

Not really true. When I go on long trips I keep frozen stuff on the bottom and fresh stuff on top and in the little side bin. Although it would.be nice to have dedicated compartments, I have had great luck doing as described. On a recent two week trip to Moab we had slushies every lunch.

Thats nice to know because we are purchasing one soon. I would like the ARB nut we may end up with one of the Whynter ones (my buddy has one and loves it). I would love ice cream on the trail!!!

Yes and get a remote (outdoor indoor) themometer. The one on the unit isn't accurate to the internal temp.

I purchased my 50qt a couple of weeks ago and have been making a shelf to mount it behind the passenger seat. Since I purchased it I have been keeping beer and monsters cold in the garage. This thing is freaking awesome and WILL freeze items with no problem. I am almost done. Did a test fit finally today. Found out my ground was bad and had to relocate, but other than that I just need to install the tie down and done
