JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
I realize I’m not exactly early to this party, but none the less it was time to buy a new cooler for the trail. I checked my console, dug between the cushions on my couch and managed to scrape together two thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine shiny pennies to jump into the world of Yeti. I realize that Yeti is a brand that is known for high end coolers and that they are not cheap, but I had to see for myself if they actually live up to the hype.
Cooler of choice for me...the Yeti Hopper Flip 18. It is a great size for a one to three day adventure and fits perfectly behind the seat of my Jeep. The Hopper Flip 18 will set you back $299.99 though, but if this thing works it is worth every cent.
DRYHIDE™ SHELL. The Hopper’s high-density fabric is waterproof and resistant to mildew, punctures, and UV rays. The liner is made from an FDA-approved food-grade material.
Closed-cell rubber foam offers far superior cold-holding to ordinary soft coolers.
The toughest, highest-performing waterproof and leakproof cooler zipper in the world.
Ok, ok, let’s get to what matters here. Is there actually a cooler that won’t hold more than a few days worth of food actually worth $300 bucks?? Guess what folks...I absolutely LOVE this Yeti! I’ve ran it on day trips, overnighters and even a week long trip to Texas recently and I couldn’t be happier with it's performance! For me the size is perfect, it’s not heavy to travel with and it keeps things cold for days, what more could I ask for??
I would of never thought that I’d be a guy that dropped that kind of cash for a cooler and am happy I did it, but I have to say here, I am pleasantly surprised and thrilled with the Yeti Hopper Flip 18. I feel absolutely comfortable recommending it to my friends here as a purchase.
Like everything else I love though, I say try it for yourself, because what works for me my not work for you. You can find the Hopper Flip18 and all of Yeti’s products at www.Yeti.com
One thing about joining the OC Motorsports team is for sure, they love having fun! Every month we all get together and Jeep. We hit local trails, we hang and have fun together, we participate in fun charitable events and of course we get the next crazy jeep mod idea and expect the crew over there to bring it to life for us.
If you haven't visited the shop or been out on a trail with us yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?? Come on out and join the OC Motorsport family!
For a loooooong time now I've been tortured by the sun. Yup, day in and day out. Early morning...blinded! Late evening...blinded! All because my only option was to flip down my sun visor and shield my eyes from the sun with one small problem. Not only did my visor shield me from the glare of the sun, it also shielded me from ANYTHING IN FRONT OF ME!
Now, I'm not saying that TeraFlex made their brand new visor system just for me, I'm just saying it is an awfully big coincidence that just as my eyes were about to pop out of my head this wonderful long, skinny box shows up on my door step. Regardless, what a life saver!
The idea was to not only build out a tinted, plexiglass visor system that takes care of those exact moments the sun is a bit to much to squint through, but to do it with a very cool, industrial looking design and TeraFlex delivered tenfold.
The front visor kit mounts in the factory visor mounting spots so it goes in in less than 10 minutes. The side pieces are as easy to install, but mounting of the roll bar takes a little more work. The instructions are easy to follow, the price point is less than $160 bucks AND...yup, there are install videos!!
