    I run the ARB Elements fridge, plugged into a Jackery 500. Jackery gets plugged into the truck or solar depending on where/how I need to recharge it. Although I do trust the auto shut-off voltage detection feature on the Elements, I really wanted the flexibility of a system not connected (permanently) to the main battery.

    I love the setup, and the fridge can live inside or outside of the truck with no worries about weather.

    I don't have a current photo of it on the Raptor, but here it is on my Jeep:

    Nice looking jeep! If you get the time, I would like pics of the Raptor.

    Many thanks for the input!

    Will do - I am having a bed slide made for the Raptor (identical to the one above on my Jeep) that will hold the fridge, hopefully it'll be ready in a couple weeks. I'll take photos when everything's in place. For now, I've just been strapping it down to the bed of the Raptor as needed, nothing fancy.

    I meant to say you can throw the yeti cooler into the bear box at camp. But yeti coolers are rated as bear proof anyway, so either way you are good to go.

    I still like small AC fridges and freezers run by a small inverter generator for a few hours/day. Keeps deer/elk/pigs, frozen or cold. You have a freezer/fridge you can use elsewhere as well as a generator too. 12V fridges pull a lot of amps, and aren't as efficient as 110V.
