    Cummins/Holset turbo is $4K average with the labor. There are chipper alternatives, but not Holset. Not sure for Detroit, I heard it's cheaper then the Cummins one.

    The new TK Tripac is around $11K installed, a little more if you'll opt for the arctic package, stainless steel covers or extended warranty. Used are around $5-6K.

    2000+ plus watts basic inverter runs around $250-300, you will need heavy gauge cables which are around $100-150. If you want premium stuff like Xantrex inverter or inverter/charger, those can cost between $500 to $800, depends on the model.

    Can't help on the fridge, as all my trucks had one built in.

    The Tri-pac comes with a 1700 watt inverter, at least all of the ones we used did. I'd recommend new, unless you found one with lower hours and fairly new that hadn't been in a wreck.

    The inverter has the Thermo-king brand on it but is made by one of the premium manufacturers from what I was told, possibly Xantrex.
