My step father has been advised by an auto electrician that the only way he can have a dual battery system set up in his Nissan Navara STR Dual cab is if he was to install a snorkel, which will then give him enough room in the engine bay for the second battery, or mount the battery in the tray or undecarriage.

Is he getting the correct info from the auto electrician and if so, how have other Navara owners without snorkels installed a dual battery system into the vehicle.

Cheers in advance guys.

I installed a Pirrana Dual battery system kit in my STR 03. Purchased from ARB. The battery tray fits on the wheel arch LHS rear. Bolts on existing threaded holes of fuel filter mount. The fuel filter is then mounted on the battery tray bracket.
Forget how much around think $700 with battery and all plug outlets etc

i will post a pic up tonight .
getting rid of the pre filter for a snorkel setup helps .
but a 10 inch battery will fit in the front as a 9 inch is all that will fit in the back right hand corner .

I have installed a dual battery(N70ZZ) in my Nav. I removed the cyclone type pre-cleaner and made a battery tray to take it's place. I had to take to the air intake plastic tube with a hacksaw and cut it on a bit of an angle to clear the battery. So now I draw air from next to the second batt instead of inside the guard somewhere. One day I will make a snorkell to fit what's left. Rus.
