I'm with you. Hate to be stranded some where, when
I can grab the booster pack and get my own vehicle
going. So far, I've been very fortunate, had people
stop and offer help when I have needed it.
It helps to lift the hood, and stand in front of
the vehicle, holding the jumper clamps in left
hand like Statue of Liberty. Smile, and make
If you have to boost a car from behind, you need the long cables. Just
pull in the driveway behind, pull out the cables, connect and go.
I don't carry 25 footers any more either - but did for yeas when I was
in that business. On my Ramcharger I had plugs on the fender so I
didn't even nave to lift my hood
Yes. I had a set of welder plogs mounted in the fender, with a
solenoidwitch to control power to them. Plug the cables into the
fender, sten clamps to "cudtomer" battery, flip the switch on the
dash and crank the car being jumped. Then turn off the switch on the
dash, disconnect cables from car and unplug from the truck, throw
cables into back of truck and away we go.
Had air shocks on the front too, to help support the Frink plow I had
on it. I could quickly adjust for plow on or plow off. That plow
frame alone was heavy enough (full fish-plate mount) without the
plastic plow blade.

One spring (1977?) my brother was going out for the first slalom of
the season (solo 1 - autocross sort of thing on a shopping mall
parking lot) with his modified Cricket (mitsubishi Galant sold by
Plymouth) and I went over to Woodstock Ontario with him - in the
Ramcharger. I still had the snows on, the plow was off, but it still
had the plow frame. I decided to have som fun and entered. Because of
the displacement and wheelbase I was in the same class as a Corvette.
Three runs -First 2 I totallycreamed the Vette. He finally had a good
run on the third. His best time and my best time were within 1/100
second. I beat him 2 runs out of 3, but his best bested my best - by
1/100second. I felt pretty good about it!!
