Anyone know who does a cradle for the current model Rodeo Dual Cab Diesel? I've checked with ARB and they say Piranha don't at this stage.

don't have same model car.. but if there is room under your bonnet, do your own.
Big W/Supercheap/Repco all sell the trays.. and battery holders/clamps etc.
Mine is very sturdy, i used existing holes in wheel arch/housing frame etc.. rubber washers to minimise rattling etc.. fixed securely... and easy to check as all fixings are visible.
p.s. and alot cheaper than Pirahna/TJM/ARB..

We have the same model and same problem. Gary from ARB Moorbank was waiting for info on tray from Piranha. We have run an active and neutral to the rear of the tray, 2.5mm, and at the moment just hook our fridge (40L Engel) to it straight from the main battery. So far we have only left the fridge in while we are driveing and sightseeing but it would last alot longer. Our plan is to have the controls under the bonnet and put a sealed battery and heavy duty case in the rear, with plugs so that we can remove it when not in use. Not the best option but there is no space at all out front without $$$$$$$, aircon etc. The 2.5mm is temp at the moment, heavy cable should be used. Any good autoelectrician will be able to do this if you can't. Gell ceel and the new glass mat batteries would be the go, totaly sealed.
