Fridges in the 90 ST - show me your setups

looking at getting a Fridge for the 90
prime candidates are the ARB 50qt, an Ingle about the same size, possibly the Ingle 27..

i have the stock back seat and will probably work around the brackets. but not sure.

Good choice. My Engel is the best money I ever spent on my truck.

The mount in my 110:



That's a piece of 3/4" birch that's carpeted and tied in to the Tithonus' reinforced tub with M8 stainless fasteners. I cut a very small and thin channel down the underside of the platform to accommodate the raised lip of the tub reinforcements. I use the Engel slide lock mount to carry the fridge. I ran Ancor wire to an outlet box constructed of a sealed Hammond enclosure with a marine-grade Blue Sea Systems 12V receptacle.

My D90 used a similar setup, except that the Engle slide mount was secured to a cargo box that was mounted in the tub of the truck.

personnaly I wouldn't put a fridge in an ST permanently due to risk of theft. Can you clarify your intended use? Were you looking for a permanent install, or just for trips?

Non permanent install.. Need something for the TAT.
I'll end up using it in the 90 and JK.

Small chunks to start (time limited somewhat). Hoping to do 1-2 weeks this summer.

I hard mounted the slide lock on the floor, the rear bench is still functional but you cannot have both operational using the larger engel 45. I am going with exmoor flip and locks and looks like it should not interfere.

Dan, seeing your 90 brings back happy memories. Gotta love the fun and good eats made possible by an Engel.

Chris,
After doing a trip with a fridge…hard to image doing it any other way. The quality of meals days into a trip is undeniable. Definitely good times. I am missing wide open spaces.

Rover doc, do you have any other shots of how it's mounted. That is pretty much what I was thinking of.

Robert I don't have any other pics readily available but once you pick your fridge size, slide lok etc it's just a matter of setting it down and making sure it clears the door, bench brackets etc. I took advantage of having my fuel tank dropped as I was refurbishing tank gard, fuel pump etc and had ready access for bolts for slide lok. I have 1mm of space between grab handle and mud uk rear door cover. The beauty of this set up is access to the fridge. Easy to open and peak in. Good luck. Dan
