Bit off the bronco topic, but this is a nice set up.

Finally figured out how to run a electric blanket all night while overlanding. Thought I'd share what I came up with. Managing the power station between the blanket and the vehicle cooler. Hope this helps you all stay toasty out there!

Hello Brian. How far will your tent be from the Bronco? I was thinking about running an extension cord from my power supply into my tent for power. Unless I'm missing something. Thanks.

Hmmm I might need to get that power bank, seems pretty impressive for a 40Ah.

@B Miller Try putting it on top of your sleeping pad instead of just in the sleeping bag (assumed on top of you but under sleeping bag). We put our e-blanket under a sheet on top of our mattress, we don't have to run it all night, keeps the heat in better.

That should work just fine. No sure how long the power supply will last running both items though.
