Please note the amendments I have made to my installation instructions, both in red and further along in italics and at bottom link to stevemc181 post.

If you're still confused let ARB or an auto electrician take care of it.

New battery tray arrived today, from FNB 4x4,must say I am happy with my choice.
Cost a bit more than the others, but looks like a better quality item. Welding and finish.
This one is specifically made for NW diesel and makes use of all but one of the factory mounts, plus has a heat shield on motor side. Last but not least, fits a 12inch N70 battery.
Will post more picks once all the goodies arrive, only want to pull car apart once.

Yes, that's exactly what I mean. The original starter battery moves into the new auxiliary battery tray but remains as the starter battery. The new second battery then gets situated into the place vacated by the start battery.
However, I should clarify that there is no need to rewire anything. You just need to make sure that positive and negative leads from the starter battery migrate to the new location with the battery.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Rick

Hey Gunsrunner

How did that battery tray work out for you? Does it seem pretty sturdy? What size battery did you end up putting in it? Did you have to add any holes to bolt it on?

Cheers

Yes, very happy. Have done 15000 km now, 50% gravel/corrugated no problems. There was a bolt that didn't line up needed a shim, but no matter. No extra holes needed.

Default Opposite Lock dual battery tray - MIA?

Hello all

Just a note to say that I contacted my local Opposite Lock store in Queanbeyan about a dual battery tray for a NW.

The response was that they don't sell a NW specific tray.

Cheers

Sooby, there are a number of different trays available for the NW, do a search of this forum. ARB, Outback Accessories, Piranha brands all come to mind immediately! I'd go elsewhere to buy if that was as far as OL could help you! My advice would be to buy and install the tray yourself - it's a very easy bolt on accessory. Then have someone install the dual battery set-up if you're not comfortable installing the electrics yourself.

Thanks Onslow

Yep, research is well underway. I don't want to drill any holes in my shiny new car.

TJM seems to be well worth a look.

Cheers
