Spend any amount of time wheeling with Scott Carline, owner of Axleboy Off-Road, and you’ll soon discover that, like most other people, this man likes his beverages kept cold. Most wheeling trips, this is no problem. There are plenty of gas stations and grocery stores that can keep up with Scott’s demand for ice, but, with plans to take his Jeep out on the Rubicon Trail for a few days, the inability to acquire ice would present a significant problem.
How to Keep it Cold
The dilemma was real, and the way we saw it, there were 3 options: First, we could try to change Scott’s taste, to be more like Mike, who actually likes his drinks served at room temperature. That option didn’t seem likely at all. Our second suggestion was to pack a cooler right before hitting the trail, as usual, and hope that it would last the full three day trip. Knowing that the cooler’s lid would be opening every 30-45 minutes (you think we’re kidding), there was no way a bag of ice could last throughout the entire trip. Our third and final option was to look into portable refrigeration. That’s where the ARB Fridge/Freezer comes into play.
The ARB Fridge Freezer
Scott and his Jeep spend a LOT of time on trails, so it made perfect sense to invest in this heavy duty, portable fridge. A few of the features that really stood out to us are:
- Three year warranty.
- Forward facing thermostat control.
- Deep storage capacity.
- Able to operate at extreme angles without affecting operation or reliability.
- Fully removable lid and basket for easy cleaning.
- Internal LED cabinet light.
- Interior drain plug.
- Integrated battery protection system
- Offered in a variety of sizes: 37 Qt, 50 Qt, 63 Qt & 80 Qt
- and more.
The Right Option For You
We know that not everybody is into multi-day off-road trips, and like Mike, no everybody wants their beverages nice and cold. For those of you that ARE and DO however, the ARB Fridge/Freezer is a pretty nice way to go!
