I'm thinking that too. Though, down the road if I get a different spare tire (OEM spare - 265/40/18 and OEM tire size is 265/60/18), I would have to make sure the bolt holding the spare rim to the battery box would reach as the tire would sit up slightly higher with the slightly wider tire.

I'm probably thinking about this one too much now. I just need to get my plans to a metal shop and have them weld this up for me.

Any idea on the cost for this small project?

Re: Secondary Battery Ideas!!!

I never made something of this. Now summer is here, I have started thinking about this again. I was planning on putting an alarm system in the bike but I might skip it and pursue this idea again. It would be a nice start to have a spare 100Ah battery in the Jeep.

I have often thought that the area in the boot where the sub-woffer is would make an ideal place for a second battery
But lack the skills to do this

Looks like someone beat me to the punch... I think I'm just going to keep it simple:

Re: Secondary Battery Ideas!!!

Dave at Uneek 4x4 in AUS is going to take a look for me in fabbing up a mount. He is currently building a full bull bar for the WK2 and is fitting it next week on someone's WK2. He said he'll take a look in the back and see what he can do.
