Things still to do.
. Snorkel
. Bull bar
. Lift kit (2" should do)
. Off road camper trailer
. Storage drawers to stop everything flying around in the back when out on the tracks.
The list keeps going on and on lol
I will update when I check things off the list.

There is a number of us around the forum.

Yes, I will be running it under car via chaise rails with a Anderson connector at the back. That way I can remove and store inside the car when notin use.

Ok next things changing/going on tomorrow are
3mm bash plates and a set of diffbreather extensions.
The diff breathers are only cheep ones but they will do for the time being.

You can real big anderson plugs, I've got some here that were
used on a truck hydraulic power pack to raise and lower the second
deck on a semi car carrier.

The AP350 Anderson plug housings work with wire contacts up to 350 mcm [150 mm²] as well as busbar contacts.

Genderless design mates with itself.

Mechanical keys are color coded.

NOTE: AP350 Coloured housings have the same keying features and can be intermated.



Colour: Grey

Amps: 500

Cross Conductor Sectional Area: 53.5-152mm2
Here's one supplier. http://www.larpro.com.au/larpro/category/154

There's heap on ebay, it looks like they may be rated 350 constant load but can take
up to 500amp. More research may be needed.

I've seen the ebay ones and only use genuine plugs myself for the car to caravan connection but I have a couple of other accessories I wanted to set up using larger gauge cable and wasn't having much luck. I'm still not sure I'd personally winch through one of these but absolutely love them for other stuff.

All done, service and new bits added :) bit over 1/2 day to do the lot.
Running the breather piping and securing it took the longest part of the job.
Was going to add the front diff to the set up but the factory outlet it just off to the right of the pic at same level, so it was not worth moving it.
