Latest ARB Fridge deal........

Post by TwinStick » Fri Jan 26, 2018 12:35 am

At OK4wd. Fridge, free transit bag, $50 OK4wd gift certificate, & free custom OK4wd/ARB Benchmade folding knife. Cool stuff. Not sure if shipping is free or not this time ?
Traded to 2019 ZR2, Red.

4Runner was a GREAT vehicle but could not even tow our 6x10 enclosed utility trailer comfortably, even when it was empty-ish.

It was time. Truck was still leaking BADLY every time it rained or snowed & melted. It was leaking at every single gasket (rear window, front window, all 4 doors). You could sit inside & watch it run down the inside of windshield, rear window & drip off the upper side door beams. It was molding on the inside & starting to stink. Needed new steering gearbox, shocks, new upgraded T-style steering, tires, brake lines, d/s manifold bolts that are barely recognizable due to rust-removed & replaced. Everyone around here would not even touch em once they looked at them.

So, say what you will. PW turned into a money pit. Was no longer a joy to drive. Hoping that this downsized 4x4 with lockers will fill the bill & have minimal problems, but..... As long as manufacturers keep making engineers design things that fail soon after warranty is up, we are going nowhere fast. Regardless of what you buy. :rockon:

Not a bad deal, but not great. They will also give you a 5% discount on your first order if you sign up for email notifications. My Indel B won't run on 12V anymore, so I'm deciding whether to put serious repair money into it (otherwise perfect), or just get another fridge. Waiting for the ARB 50 at $599 with free ship and no tax that 4WP and 4WD Hardware had at Christmas a year ago. Been waiting a long time to see that deal again.

Amazon has the new Dometic 50 at $523 plus about $60 shipping. Nice fridge, but just a little too big for the back seat platform in my 3G Quad Cab. The Indel and the ARB allow use of the passenger side of the back seat, with the fridge strapped down behind the driver's seat.

Yeah, I got lucky too. 2 free transit bags, 2 free shipping & free remote fridge monitor & they dropped the price on each fridge by $100. For what they cost, I think a wiring kit should come with them as standard equipment.
