Hi all,

Has anyone setup a dual battery system in a 3.5 V6 Jackaroo with cruise control? I'd like to know where they placed the aux battery and tray as there is bugger all space in the engine bay for it.

I have seen some installations on diesels that place the battery at the rear of the engine bay on the passenger side, but the V6 has the cruise control actuator there.

Savvas, I had a pirhana setup installed by TJM in Adelaide. They moved the cruise control and some A/C plumbing. Nice neat job that's been working well for a couple of years, with no probs.
Happy trails, Mike.

Savvas.. I have a Jack. and have seen a duel battery set up as described: On the same side as the existing battery they turned the original battery around 90deg. and pushed it towards the side wall. Then they shifted the small box of goodies towards the fire wall and there was enough room for the aux. battery. Best if you print this out and read it while looking at the engine etc. I also read in one of these columns that someone was trying to change the fan on his Jack. and i'm sure that someone said that they had two belts to change.Is my car one of a kind but I've only got one( mind you it has more turns in it that an Indy circut)

Nobby,
He may have a 3.2L petrol V6. They use seperate belts for the Alternator, Air Conditioner and Power Steering. The 3.5 uses a single serpentine belt to do the lot.
