I clipped the cig lighter power cable and put on an Anderson Powerpole. It connects to the fuse box under my driver seat that runs to the auxiliary battery.

And then put in my new Yaesu FT-2900R where the Bear Cat had been:

Super stoked and have been on a HAM binge all morning. Checked into a net on the Conifer repeater, talked to a guy up on SugarLoaf Mountain on Simplex, and just now talked to Marco and Allison who are hitting the Vail repeater as they drive down I-70. All this without using more than 10 Watts!
