  • A few new toys

    Thought I'd give you a peek at a couple of my new toys. There're not enough pics of how our new NS's are setup so let's see what you've got!

    This is my new ARB Dual Battery System. Using an Exide Extreme battery as the auxillary (N50, 75AH, 550CCA) which can be used as deep cycle or starting battery. ARB's tray is a one piece unit which holds the starting battery and the auxillary.




    This is my new ARB High Volume Compressor. It's mounted in behind the passenger side headlight. Only used it briefly to reinflate one tyre but it seems to be bloody quick. Switch inside car is located in one of the cutouts next to the ASC button.





    And here's my DIY Drawer System. Fridge on the RHS, stove slides into space under the fridge. False floor is made from external ply and is bolted in using the captive nuts in the floor. Drawer frame is bolted onto false floor using threaded inserts that I screwed into the floor. That way I can take it in and out as needed without damaging the holes in the floor. Fridge platform is bolted in the same way. Drawer slides hold 50kg which is plenty for what I carry in there. Drawer also opens at the top on heavy duty hinges. Bits and peices for the jack are mounted on the inside of the drawer.





    Righto, now it's your turn.

    Fantastic, well done.

    Do you know how the ARB dual battery tray compares to the TJM in price?

    Any reason you went ARB?
    thanks,

      G'day Walker, I believe the TJM, ARB, Piranha, battery trays are all about $140-$150. I ended up buying the ARB unit because I also wanted their new compressor and thay ended up giving me a good discount for buying both.

      I think the TJM Dual Battery System is very similar in quality and cost.

        Did you have any problems getting the compressor mounted where it is?
        Was anything moved in the process?

          Hi Fudggie, ARB installed it and apparently it was a bit fiddly. Nothing had to be moved permenantly but the had to remove the headlight and and a few other bits to get it in there. Very happy with the end result though.
