    eh, they aren't useful for much. Such a low power rating. You'd be better off putting a larger aftermarket one in.

    No. Which is why I rarely use it... I'd love to have a 750-1000W one at some point. Maybe use that one to power the bed outlet and 1 in the cab, and make the OEM one just do one in the bed. For charging my cell or something. I'd love to run my 15gal air compressor from the bed! :laugh:

    ^lol I'm surprised some cop didn't pull you over for "unauthorized" lights just to be an ass...

    I saw pics of a guy with one of those white animated deer in his bed! :laugh: made it look like it was jumping out the tailgate.

    ..I had a couple retorts lined up in case :
    "Oh wow your lights are brighter than mine!" and
    "Cool! You have lights TOO!"

    Probably would have spent Christmas in lockup.

    If I did the math right, the outlets only good for 3.48 amps...
    I think its a great idea, but to bad they could not step it up to say 15/20 amps to ..... run a good part of the house during power outages, someone mentioned air compressors for airing up on the trails

    None. Stock with options - Roof rack, running boards, hood scoop, etc.
    I will be using it to watch the earlier football games when we're tailgaiting for the Charger games...

    Looks like I'll have to wait for next season as I couldnt get a hold of any Chargers playoff tickets..
