    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Ok so for you guys with off road trucks with the space at the aft passenger side engine compartment available with the three studs coming out of the fender well, it's a great place to mount a second battery or in my case an air compressor. I went with the single ARB ckma12.
    I ended up making the mount out of some aluminum extrusion leftover from another project. The aft leg of the mount needs to be deeper by about an inch to account for the hight difference in the studs. The ARB wiring harness is pretty straight forward. The switch is the hardest part( for me a least.

    So maybe I missed it, did you remove the E-locker and ARB the rear, or is this the front?

    Not replacing the factory locker. The compressor is for filling tires after beach driving and for filling kitesurfing kites a the beach.

    Thats pretty slick. Your beach pals will go damn, youve got a nice setup.

    My sr5 has a brake distribution block in that spot I need to find a different place to mount the pump for a rear locker.
