    I'm going sPOD on that, but a waterproof housing would be nice. I think I'll have to disconnect and remove it to wash under the hood.

    Remember how quiet I was between last Sept when the bumper went on and now? The magic numbers were "savin' up" :D

    3" lift, custom rims, snug top shell, shrockworks bumper, warn winch.
    What about battery switching? Be nice to run the winch/aux stuff off of a battery that could not drain the primary.

    And I suppose I can go ahead and post some pictures of the battery setup in this particular build now that were done with the tray....

    In that last picture you can see the fuse / relay block we used for this build. It's a really nice setup that houses 10 fused circuits and 5 relays all in a water proof case. Plus the part I love about it is it uses the same size fuses as the rest of the truck so no carrying around various sized spare fuses!

    Is the battery tray something that the rest of us can order? Dual battery system is going in my truck in the near future.

    This build utilizes an IBS dual battery controller which can isolate the Aux battery from the main so you don't kill it.

    More information on this install would be awesome. What made it difficult to put in and what did you do to finally get it to fit? Is it on an angle in there or is that my imagination?
