Put a refrigerator in your pickup
You can have a refrigerator right in your pickup bed, says D & S Distributing, Inc., Kennedy, Minn., about its new "Cool-Tooler" storage box that's half cooler and half tool box.
Half of the electronic 12-volt cooler holds up to 50 lbs. of food or up to 48 12-oz. cans. The other half holds tools and parts. The unit is thermostatically controlled, ranging between 32 and 44 ?, although there's a maximum cold setting for lower temperatures. "Farmers love the Cool-Tooler be-cause it eliminates the inconvenience of handling ice," says Bill Schwankl, Fargo, N.D. "It's really handy if you fish or hunt because you can bring fish and meat home without using ice and put your fishing and hunting gear in the other side of the box. The large spring assisted lids provide easy access and there's a slide-out tray for added convenience. The cooler, controlled by a toggle switch in the cab, can be set to run continuously or off a thermostat."
The cooler requires only 4 amps per hour while operating continuously on maximum cold. It can run 20 to 36 hours on a regular duty battery.
The "Cool-Tooler" is available in two models. Model 1100A fits American-made wide bed pickups. Model 1250A fits imported mini pickups, Chevrolet S-10 and S-15 pickups, Ford Ranger pickups, and Ford narrow bed pickups.
Sells for $329.
