12v power source for electric steering

Will someone explain the difference between a 24v/12v converter and a 24/12v charger? Ive tried to keep the trucks all 24v (winch,usb chargers, cb's, compressor) due to my experience losing 2 inverters on rv's. I'd rather not count on a converter to run a winch or something critical. I don't have mu...

Re: Fat Fabrications

I got to meet andre on 11-29, picked up some tank/battery guards he made for me. Parts look and fit perfect and he's a great guy. They were busy but he took the time to let me gawk at all the cool trucks (at least 14 or 15 there) and gave me some tips on the disc brake install and other items I'm wo...

Re: Hagerty insurance

I told Hagerty the Pinz's were kept outside, they said no problem. This is how they list it on the dec pages. They knew Pinzgauers and were glad to write them. Asked if they were used offroad and I said yes. Their response was that's fine but collision coverage is excluded for offroad damage. The po...

Re: The electric conversion future

when any goverment....especially CA sees you have more cash in your pockets....they will find a way to get it....that I'm certain of. It's where it is going and I agree with you on that. I just don't believe at the end of the great electric revolution...that you will have one dime more in your pocke...

Re: The electric conversion future

Will electric rates stay the same or go through the roof due to the extremely high demand? Will any vehicle savings be eaten up by higher costs for electric to your home and business? It will be interesting.

Re: The electric conversion future

Roughly 50% of fuel price is taxes. Do you believe the governments will give up that revenue stream? Environmentally I don't know, the emissions are there for gas, but batteries aren't made of butterflies and rainbows either. I feel it will happen, and the cost to own and operate your vehicle will b...

Re: KLUGEWERKS Disc Brake Conversion Kit Updates

Good to know. I'm heading to rockwall TX on the 29th and I'm going to run over to Andres to pick up some tank/battery box guards he made for me. I'll pick his brain on the conversion when I see him!

Best Book for Amateur Radio Technician license

I got interested in amateur radio (from you guys) and decided to get the technicians license. There are plenty of practice exam sites and after a few attempts and before reading anything on the topic, I managed to get passing scores. The problem is all I am learning are the answers to the test, I ca...
