Does anyone have experience or ideas about onboard batteries? I need more battery power over what the stock size battery in the XJ can provide. I would like to put another one in the rear or where rear passenger seat used to be. Whats the best way to do it and is there any notable safety concerns? Thinking maybe one of the new type crossover batteries that are both deep cycle as well as cranking battery. Need something to power winch and as backup if main goes dead. Any ideas folks? Thanks.
Had a desire for a flood light for camping in the woods. I seem to always show up at night to my camp spot and usually am fiddling with trying to set up in the dark. Here is my build: Paint roller Remove roller, drill holes in light bracket Search boxes of random parts in shop and find old sway bar bushing and small hose clamp. Attach to extendable paint pole Here is the result. Solar powered, rechargeable, remote controlled, extendable height flood light. I got this off of Amazon for $50ish. Comes with solar panel, light with internal battery and remote. Charge while drive during the day with solar mounted on roof rack. Set up in camp on rig or tree. Light for hours. This is only 30w so not crazy bright but for $175 you can get much brighter versions.
