After thinking about how to do it for 12 months (OK, so I'm a slow thinker) I have just fitted a 65 amp hour deep cycle auxiliary battery in to the Explorer. If anyone wants any info just drop a line. Trev

Hello Axel + Karen, managed to mount it in the passenger rear wheel well. Bent up a 1/8 inch plate in a Z shape to fit over exposed chassis rail and craddle the battery, Welded a diagonal brace on the back and a horizontal on on the front. Fitted a brace from near the bumper down onto the craddle. Is as solid as a rock and finished off with a thick (rigid) plastic sheet from the body joint in the wheel arch to stop any stones or mud hitting the battery. You can't see anything unless you get under the car. Have a couple of photos if you need them. Now where can I fit the compressor? Rds Trev
