Today I got my Thumper Battery system wired into the back of the GC. They done a great job, very neat and hidden, and the Anderson plug comes out nicely into the Thumper battery. Tomorrow the LED light bar goes in under the number plate.

Very happy with the job done in wiring up my Thumper Battery. Battery sits in the back, Anderson plug runs nicely out of the rear cargo bucket, making it easy to extend or shorten the length as required and the Redarc 3 stage battery charger is tucked away nicely under the bucket. Now to get the lights on today.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Hey Magoomba, I was thinking of the light bar also, but couldn't find anywhere to mount it. What brand did you go with?? Please post some pics when done. Thanks

Hey Watto,
I went with the new snake racing SR 20 inch LED, I'm here sitting at the auto mechanics now wait to be installed. Under the number plate/bumper bar, there is a honey comb grill I between the two plastic tow hook covers, behind that is a steel bar. They are making a bracket and mounting it there. Photos to come on completion. One trouble I'm having at the moment is the guys making the bracket yesterday forgot to drop it off and can't be reached today ... So the last two hours here have been real great .. But credit to the auto mechanics .. Their working in another solution as they know I drove 350klms just to get thus done. My luck ! Lol

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Looks great Magoomba, I will be doing the same one day, i like the idea if the 3 stage battery charger. Plenty of things i can hide under that little storage box.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

OK UPDATE ON THE 20INCH LIGHT BAR ...
after a long morning waiting for the bracket to arrive for the light bar, the main man doing all the electrical work can up with a great solution to mounting my light. the bracket he sketched is to be made out of 10mm aluminum and will cradle the light and provide a stronger and stable platform for the light ... alot better than the bracket that was made ... of course i had to leave my light with them so they can measure it up ... but the design was great and i now can't wait the 3 weeks till i can get back to Darwin to get it put in. I guess all good things come to those who wait ...lol

Re: WK2 DownUnder

For an alternate Brake Controller solution you could consider the Redarc. This has a remote controller as shown in attached file and is mounted next to light switch.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

OK ... My GC as for now ... still to come is the Light Bar under number plate, New Thule Aero Wing Bars, Rola Vortex Rack. On it so far are Yokohama ATS Geolander AT's, Rockrails, QL ORII system, Extra dark tint all round and Chrome mirrors. Jeep still have to fit my Tow Package, Electronic Rust, Reverse camera, fix my drivers side mirror where they cracked it the day i picked it up .... and if they ever decide to approve the bracket for the nudge bar, well that to and my Vision X HID Spotlights.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Nice pics mate, Nice and clean, will be good to see pics of the light bar when you get it installed. I am due to pick my car up on wednesday and the dealer still hasn't called me to let me know that the nudge bar won't be fitted. How dark is your tint? is it street legal?

The Tint, yeah it's close .. The back ones are darker than usual .. Nit legal and the front are legal but appear darker due the back being so dark.
