I'm leaning towards to Boss 4WD tray.
I spoke to them today & it doesn't require the wheel arch fuss & seems good quality.

On a different note, I spoke to ARB in Brisbane & they said that they just replaced a tray that he thought might be a Piranha one with their ARB twin tray, because the wiring loom had been damaged by the previous tray which left the owner high & dry in the outback for some hours apparently.

Hopefully none of the major tray makers would allow good clearance to the big wiring loom, but you never know!

Cheers,
Sam

I'll be putting some hard shielding around that loom as they are touching.

Also would suggest running any wiring through the firewall grommet before fitting the tray because the tray blocks it.

Thats not great news pixie_au
I thought that they would have designed it to not touch.

Any thoughts on what you're going to use to shield the wiring loom?

i havnt connected the positive cables or the battery isolator yet as i am waiting for some fuse holders to arrive, however i will note the space between main loom and tray, i recall it seemed generous. btw i havenít disturbed my main loom boot, i used the aux/spare boot for my cabling into the cab.

Sorry my words weren't clear. The main loom coming out of the firewall is not touching the tray, that is clear and below the tray. It is the smaller loom between the inside of the guard and the tray. It's not putting pressure on it, just touching. I'll put some of that flexible split ribbed conduit around it.

Thanks pixie_au

I feel better knowing it's not the massive loom. I'm sure the smaller one can be protected fairly easily.
Is there any chance you could post some pictures of the tray in place if possible please.
Would like to see it before purchasing one.
Appreciate your replies!

Thanks,
Sam

This is my dual battery install using a Boss tray. Good bit of gear.
Cheers, Mike.

Thanks Mike.
Appreciate your pics.

Can I ask what sized battery the tray is able to fit comfortably without touching the fuel filter?

Cheers,
Sam
