Kazza , your link fails twice.

First, it is incomplete. Why don't you use the link button under the text window?

Second, if you copy the whole link and past it into a browser to make it work, you get nothing because you have to log in.

Is this better although I am certain I have just copied/pasted urls in the past Topic: dual battery mu-x behind second row

Sorry but can't do anything about the membership but it would be worth it for the OP to join the site, lots of very good info on the D-Max & MUX

Dazza,

To answer your question, I bought my 2nd battery for my BT50 at my local battery shop.

Somehow I think you're after more info than that. 2nd batteries are not vehicle-specific, but layout and cabling might be, so tell us what you want to know.

Type of battery?
In the tub, on the tray, hanging off the chassis?
Charging system?
Isolator?
Cabling?
Sparky to do the work?
Branded, like ARB, OL, TJM, whatever?

I have a Dmax and real estate under the bonnet is fairly limited so I put mine in the tub which works well and that way you aren't limited for the size you want to use.

Limited space under the bonnet but Pirana make a tray for a second battery. Recommended battery is an Optima D34 because of height restriction. Great battery but only 55aH. Ok for running most 40l fridges for 2 nights if the weather is kind.

Simple way out is a battery in a box (Engel, ABR Sidewinder etc) strapped near the tailgate & charged off the socket there.
