Can some one help with a shop that could sell me a dual battery system for my NP pajero that will bolt in using the bolt holes already in the engine bay.
In Adelaide or Mildura area.

Cheers Tankman :-) :-)

You would reckon that ARB or TJM would sell them.

We will have them soon. Busy with design at the moment.

Try Piranha.

Why bother making your own for a Pajero when you could buy an tray from ARB. It retails for about $120.00 and is a neat tray, they would probably sell it cheaper to you.

Thanks for the help I'll give ARB,TJM a go.
I just thought maybe a Paj owner could point in the right direction.
Or suggest which is better.
Also is Piranha a Adelaide or Mildura.

Thanks 4 the help,
Cheers Tankman

I have just recently fitted an extra battery to my NP Pajero DiD. I used a Piranha battery carrier which fits in neatly and bolts into the existing bolt holes. I fitted a Trojan SCS150 100AH battery to the carrier. This is the only 100AH battery that fits into the Pajero. It does this because of it's higher profile. You may have to GENTLY bend the air conditioner pipe so that it does not chaff later on. I used a Redarc relay and fitted it to the firewall. I ran 6 BS wiring as I use the extra power for my caravan and Engel. Do not use anything less than 6 BS. I have a photo of it in my vehicle if you want it. Email me if you do.

Thanks Bill
This is just what I was after.I forgot to mention I have a DiD as well.Thanks for the type of Battery to buy as well.I have a redarc on my boat so this is familiar.

Hope you can help!
Have you done any mods on the suspension,
I'm looking at fitting polyair's, can I do this myself or will I need to have a wheel alignment after messing with the rear springs or don't you need to go that far?????

Kind Regards Tankman

Are you using the Piranha tray that sits at right angles to the original battery? That's the one I have and it will only take a 10inch or 250mm battery, the specs on the Trojan SCS150 say it is 286mm long, how did you get it to fit?

The specs must be wrong as my Trojan SCS150 is 250mm long. I would check again and yes the tray is at right angle to the original battery. I only just put it in 2 months ago so it is available in 250mm long.

No, I have not fitted polyairs to my Pajero as yet but intend to do so soon as I need to lift the rear end a bit when I hitch on the van. On another forum 'Pajero 4WD Club of Victoria' there is a thread on fitting polyairs to the Pajero and stated that any person with a common sense approach and handy with the hands can fit them. The main thing is not to over inflate or under inflate them. Check out the site and do a search on polyairs. All is there.

I bought the tray and battery from Opposite Lock in Mildura about 2 months ago for my NP DiD. They have a tray they made up for the Police Pajeros. Excellent fit. I put in a Marine 70Ah Calcium battery. $300 all up. They were doing a complete system for $500 (I think) at the time but as I'd already built up a controller from an Oatley Electronics kit I didn't go that way.

Excellent service and knew the product.

Only a few:

694 tyres
Snorkel
Towbar
Icom IC400pro UHF (fitted into the centre console bin with a speaker in front of the cup holders
Wiring for two Merit plugs in the back
Rhino roof bars

Next is a storage system similar in design to the Chuckwagon but self-made for about one tenth of the price. A cargo barrier will either be part of the storage system or will get a Milford one. The fridge slide for the Autofridge will also be part of the frame.

Polyairs will probably be required as the back already drops with the camper and a bit of gear so with all of the stuff in the back when we don't take the camper they're probably going to be essential.

Hi Scoof

Good to hear you're happy with the tray.

How much were the polyairs and where did you get them done?

Photos of your storage system would be great, particularly how and where you fixed it to the floor. My email address is adriandotpanowatbigponddotcom (obviously replace the dots and at with . & @!)

Regards,
Adrian

Hi Pojo
Did you fit the polyairs yourself, if so how long did it take.Do you need a wheel alingnment after the fitting job is done.

I had stronger springs fitted to the last pajero (NM 2002 petrol),and the bloke that did the job had never done it before(independent suspension) and messed up the alignment and I scrubbed out the back tyres.
Because the Paj was quite new back then never really payed much attention to the tyre ware.So don't want to do it again.
