TD5 Winch Battery


Recommended Posts

I put mine under the passenger seat along with the vehicle battery - you have to turn the existing battery around through 90 degrees, and find something to a) fill the gap that the single battery sits in and b) reinstate some kind of tie down bracket for the two batteries.

There is a kit available from devon : twin battery tray

although I just used some scrap aluminium extrusion, and a couple of m8 eye nuts and J bolts going through them.

I used an x-eng split charge into whatever battery was already in there when I bought the truck for the vehicle battery (a standard 072 I suspect), plus an AGM Hi capacity battery for the aux battery.

The 072 is smaller than the AGM one, so sits in the rear position of the battery box - you have to be careful of the battery heights as the seatbox tapers...

I am afraid my setup was made from what I had taken off my last truck or had lying around in the workshop, so I won't get into the debates about the best batteries or split charge system to use, I only know what works!
