Could somebody help me out. I have just bought a '92 Pajero and it came with several options including rear diff lock (standard) and a second battery fitted. Somebody has done a bit of a rough job of the second battery tray so I want to tidy it up by putting in a tray from either ARB or TJM Products. Can somebody tell me if what I will buy of them is a COMPLETE tray and mounting brackets? Both shops said they would have to order me in one so I couldn't see one. I don't want to end up with just a tray that I have to make some brackets myself. I have been quoted $107 from both places and going by past experiences both these two mobs are expensive so I'm not sure what I'm going to get.

cheers

Hi Mike,

ARB installed a DBS in our 92 NH Pajero. That was about 5 years ago but I know the tray definitely came complete with mounting brackets etc. $107 sounds about right, can't remember what we paid for the Paj, but auxilary tray for our GU Patrol ranged from $115-$140.

100 dollars for a battery tray is highway robbery. You should be able to build one yourself or get a sheetmetal place to make you one for a fraction of the cost. And it wont be banged together in some half arsed way on a production line.

yeh I know it's expensive, I am fitter and machinist by trade so I have access to everything I need, but you know what? I can't be bothered.
By the time I make it up paint it and all the rest of it, it would of taken me a couple of hours and it's just easier to buy one already made up. ptcrowe, you'd be suprised what it would cost to have a sheetmetal place make one, it would be a hell of a lot more than $107.
Anyway, thanks for the comments, I think I'll go out tomorrow and get it.

cheers

I just paid $100 for a tray for a NP pajero, I thought the same thing, there's about $10 worth of metal in it, but I weighed up the time involved in making it etc etc and decided to buy a pirahna one. Took it out of the box and literally 3 minutes later it was installed, all the holes lined up nicely with existing bolts and holes, looks well enough made is zinc coated. It's up to you, if you've got a spare day and handy with a mig you'd make one for nothing out of scrap.But $100 I thought was worth the time saved.

You can get them direct from pirahna in melbourne or in Sydney ARB sell the pirahna one, also just about any 4WD shop gets them in. In the pajero it bolts in behind the main battery up against the firewall on the passenger side, can only fit a 10 inch battery in. If you have a diesel it bolts straight in, only a couple of minutes job. However the petrol one needs some work, you need to re locate the charcoal canaster and the cruise control module needs remounting on a bracket supplied with the battery tray.
