That really depends on what your needs are. I'm still looking into the battery management systems for those that want to go the all out, top of the line automatic setup. Or you could look at a simple switch from 12 volt guy.

so $145... and I have to paint it myself? I think a complete kit powder coated would be worth that...

Don't forget $400 worth of battery and $80 worth of wiring too. I don't mean to be a jerk. But that seems a bit high for two flat pieces of metal...

They're not flat. There's a lot of bending, drilling, cutting goes on to make these things. Plus there's hardware.

It is not just 2 flat pieces of metal. The kit is 3 large pieces of plate that are custom fit specifically to the 05+ Tacoma to make for an easy bolt in kit that will securely hold dual batteries in the factory location. The main base plate wraps down into the engine bay, the battery tray has stops along the edge to keep the batteries from sliding off the sides. Also all hardware is included.

If you had to move the batteries to the bed you'd be looking at nearly the same cost in just the heavy gauge battery cable needed and you'd need a sealed battery box.

I know there's a whole lot more than $145 tied up into making these a reality. Selling parts is never a guarantee, but dumping a ton of $ into making them in hopes of selling some is. Just think, when you sell one for $145 you'll only need to sell about 6 more to break even. People don't think about anything other than the material used. They magically appear on the workbench after Santa brings the steel.

While I agree, I will also say that the photos don't show the main base plate, and they don't show the tabs on the side of the tray very well. Also I've really got to rewrite the descriptions for everything. It will get better, one step at a time.

You can order them by giving us a call (608-348-5462) or shooting me a PM, or by using the new website that Brett linked to. BTW Don't save that link! It will be changing to armortechoffroad.com as soon as I can get the URL transferred over. I'm going into full on Quito stalker mode on that today!

Also, I realize this was specifically designed for the Optima battery's 34/75's, but will it still accomodate the square battery's?

I can not afford hardly anything right now. A buddy is donating me his Battery from his truck, and I'll have my battery from my truck- so thats 2. Til I can budget the Optimas.

I have this ->http://stingerelectronics.com/produc...9&CategoryID=2 For the isolation.

- Are there any mounting areas you recommend? Some of the other kits mount on top of the 2 battery's, others are in a random spot. I was planning to check clearance under the hood, and possibly add 2 extra holes on the top battery plate to mount her up.

I'm not sure what you mean by "the square batteries" I would not particularly suggest mounting the solenoid to the top plate of the battery hold down as having to fight with the cables when changing out the batteries could become a pain. Depending on how large it is you might be able to mount it to the leg that reaches down the inside of the fender well. There is quite a lot of space there. There is also some room between the batteries and the inner fender up next to the batteries.
