    If you don't need something that heavy duty, these are a bit cheaper. I've used them for 2 years on 6 camping/wheeling trips and they are holding up very well.I use 4 small and 3 medium totes. The mediums fit on the shelf in my 4R like they were custom made for it.

    My phone died when I was walking out in the sticks.
    Time to keep my anker power bank in the truck. (10k mah, good for about 3 full phone charges).
    Also, got on ordering that gmrs radio.
    Just a Midland handheld.

    Do any of you have or have used those airbag recovery jacks?
    Curious if they work good.

    I just keep my phone plugged in when it’s in the truck

    garmin inreach is great if you are frequently out of cell coverage. Even if you aren’t, I run the tracking on adventures so someone can find me if needed

    I was, every chance I had.
    The constant phone tag with people and walking back and forth to the hwy, the slow truck charger couldn't keep up to my demands.

    @rubbersidedown Got a Question for you, Didn't you install Ironman ACU on your Tacoma ? And if so did you have a shop install the New ones after recall?

    I just use the master race of phones.

    My iPhone 15 Pro Max has such a great battery I often use is as a jump starter for when my truck battery dies.

    Sounds like you need a better truck battery.

    I do have the Ironman UCAs and went through the recall process. I have the box with the replacements in my garage. Mine have been fine and I had planned to replace them myself after the Arkansas trip and when it gets a bit warmer out. I don't really want a shop screwing it up, and, quite frankly, I'm not sure where I'd take them to have it done and have confidence that it was done properly.

    Ok cool ! I will be installing my New ones myself also, but I don't know how in depth you took this issue. But anyway thought you'd like to know that it was not the ACU that they had problems with it was the Ball joint they installed that was the problem. I've talked extensively on this subject with Ironman Inc. They only had a few issues on this subject and they just thought it would be better just to recall that batch of ACU's But honestly talking with them , in my own opinion and theirs . it was mostly installment problems . Just thought you'd like to know. So I'm probably just going to install ball joint delete kit in them or just get rid of them once I install the new ones

    I have three if that tells you anything. We used them all on this last trip. One has most of my camp kitchen and the other is tools and an electrical kit in a pack out box. My wife used the one I let her have for snacks :confused:

    Those trays work nice to keep ratchet straps in too.

    Working on sourcing some Pelican valves to keep it from getting pressurized if we travel to high elevations ever.
