Hey guys, just wondering if anyone has put the 2nd battery anywhere else other than tray in their dmax.. Tray takes up too much room.. Cheers

I have a 2013 DMax dual cab which is fitted with a set of drawers and a fridge slide. The fridge slide fits over the lid of the storage compartment behind the lefthand wheel arch making un-accessible, so I put the battery and a 12v to 12v charger in that space. When I need to access it I need to take the fridge slide out first.

I fitted a terminal block to the Anderson plug wiring to enable it to power to the 12v charger and the plug.

Strange name! Related to the Standard Motor Company?
Perhaps you should tell us if which you have, A Tray or a Tub. Big difference with adding an AUX battery. If tray as you mentioned, many people make a bracket and fit in under the tray floor. If a TUB, then the equation changes considerably. Depending on the AH size and the style of battery, ie, normal or thin AGM it will make the fitting quite different and a thin AGM will easily fit where a conventional/normal size dimension battery will be a nuisance. There are many options. I have a 105ah AGM in a ply box which is held there by strapping and to that I can add a 40 AH smaller AGM which is easily taken to run compressor or attached to trailer or caravan as required.

With a bit of work you can fit a 140AH AGM behind the rear seat - im in the process of doing this at the moment and will be updating my build thread with progress
