Mounting a snowplow on a unibody truck would be ill-advised.So do they put something up front for a winch , snow plow Adapter or after market lights ?
That's almost enough for a nice little stereo setupThe F-150 can be had with a 2kw inverter. 2000watt inverter. That has some umph. The hybrid is 2.4kw.
I'm just really interested (and a little bit concerned) about how much draw you can put on the 12 volt side of this electrical system.As has been stated you can get an inverter that plugs into the cig lighter from amazon real cheap. I already have one.
I see a 300 watt one at Amazon for 28.99. A 500 watt one is 45.99, but looks like it may need a direct connection to the battery (it comes with alligator clips for that purpose). But the 300 watt one only needs the Cig lighter.
But these of course will not be as tidy.
The in truck inverter will be nice, but since I'm not getting any luxury package it's not worth paying a lot for imo.
The integrated inverter may benefit from automatically starting the engine or automatic shut off when the battery is low. An aftermarket inverter may require the engine to be running while in use.
Well, on the one hand, I've seen a bunch of car audio systems that use rediculous high power... Like 40-100 Kwts, or even more. However, their are ways to get a TON of sound, on very low power.I could power a whole Band with 400 watts.... 3 amps... a mixer...powered speakers... Yea, We would call ourselves "HIllybillies in the Wild" hooked up to a Ford Truck
I totally agree with that statement . I have seen the results of hitting speed bumps or curbs with vehicles having a full chassis while plowing, the results are not pretty.Mounting a snowplow on a unibody truck would be ill-advised.
I'd think the wiring between inverter and outlet would also have to be replaced. I'm sure it's designed for ~4 amps @ 110 volts. There's also the issue of battery drain - if you double the draw, you draw the battery down twice as fast. I'm sure Ford manages max battery discharge to optimize battery life.Seems like one might want to look into replacing the inverter with something with a higher Watt ratting if they are looking to run something with a motor or heating element.
110v for a winch or after market lights?So do they put something up front for a winch , snow plow Adapter or after market lights ?
