Jumpstart box

So I'm trying to figure out a good jumpstart battery box. I have a e350 with the 7.3. It's a 4x4 adventure van. We go of the grid and need a reliable jump box when help is out of reach. Currently I have this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000J...eway&ppw=fresh but if my battery is really dead, it does not have enough power to start the van. So I'm looking for advice on a replacement. I looked at this https://no.co/gb150 but one of the reviews says it won't start a f350. I also don't want to spend $400. What are you guys using? What do you recommend?

Thanks that helped although looks like cats took over that topic for a while. Also covered a broader spread of vehicles and not just the big 8.3. So far it looks like my choices are https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000J...X0DER&psc=1and https://no.co/gb150 both have about the same specs and both have about the same price. Ones just allot smaller.

Yeah I just don't like them big and bulky like that.

Re: Jumpstart box

Consider installing a cutout switch for the glow plugs. That would reduce starting load considerably.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
