    I've had KO2s on the jeep for probably 20-30K ks and they have been fine on and offroad.. no issue in the wet. Obviously not as much grip on the road as a highway tyre, but that's as to be expected.

    I have a very similar setup, but I chuck my WR450 on the back. I would also recommend to move your plate to the bike rack, because if you drive like that and you get an arsehole of a cop, you're toast.

    I've put in my DC to DC charger in my BT50 along with a spare 110ah battery in the tray. Really happy with how clean the install came out. I'm going to mount up my fridge freezer tomorrow and chuck on my aldi rust bucket roof basket on top of the canopy roof racks in preparation for my Fraser Island trip mid August!

    actually hadn't thought of that, thanks.
    i think the bike is a bit too big might need something smaller, but finding something retro themed is hard.

    secretly it's just there for when the landrover breaks down though

    Looks like a cool setup Sam. Just order an accessory plate from QT, it's what I run on my bike carrier and have never had any police issues.

    Bit of a quick review of the new Air Compressor i got from www.4wdsupacenter.com.au
    There Thumper range of single piston compressor's have had a good rap and they now have Thumper Max Twin piston jobs that are 300l per minute.
    I got it as a package with a quick tyre deflator for $139 delivered. It arrived in 2 business days and is a very solid bit of kit.
    It also pumps tyres nice and quick. I aired my jeep tyre down to 15Psi then timed it to get it back up to 35 Psi and it did it in under 30 seconds. Would recommend AAA+++ etc

    Yes hose and gauge included.
    Hose has a quick release fitting and a short 30cm peice with a screw on valve attachment thats pretty basic. I noticed you could get another optional trigger style gauge and valve attachment like a servo gauge. As with the one that comes with the compressor you turn it off and on at the compressor only.

    Yeah those things are pretty cool, just large. I used a similar unit for 4 years off roading every other weekend and it was fine. [Upgraded to ARB twin]

    I got one and added a gauge at the compressor. For one it's a shitload closer to correct than the supacentre one and you can switch compressor off, read it, switch it back on without walking around your car a dozen times to read the one that for some reason they put at the end of a 10M hose.

    I also need to put a valve in the line so as to not have to switch on and off to my TJM compressor to get a gauge reading Anyone got any tips for hard mounting and wiring a compressor into a dual cab. Shits me having to unpack it each time.

    Onboard compressor with a digital auto inflator is the easiest..

    A few guys on newtriton have mounted them behind the rear seats where the jacks etc go. Pretty neat install but you'd need heat wrapping?

    Ok Iíll have a look but when the kids are in the car itíll be a bit loud for them.
    Wondering if thereís a spot under the tray that could have it sit but still protected.

    Before I fitted my drawers I had a small tool box at the front of the tray which had all recovery gear, compressor, and battery all mounted inside.

    Under the back seat in the floorbox? I've seen them inside the tray walls, between the outerskin and the tray itself. I'm thinking about mounting one under the LHR corner of the Challenger off the chassis rail.

    BIL has his mounted there plus other gear, I guess I just need to see how much room I lose, I already have a 12V outlet in the tray there but need to see what amps it can take otherwise I'll just hard wire the compressor.

    Anyone had issues using 4wdSupacenter lightbar harness? I grabbed one for the LED bar I won at auction and it's been a right pain in the arse. Looked everything over and apart from some questionable exposed wires on the HB3 patch harness it looked OK. Test fitted everything and apart from pluging the patch harness in upside down, it has no locktab on the vehicle side presumably so it can work with Toyotas, it all worked. Routed all various bits of harness and secured it all and what do you know? Fucking thing blows the headlight fuse. Unplug the patch harness from the lightbar harness and no issues, remove patch harness and use addafuse inplace of HB3 plugs on the patch harness, blows the lightbar fuse. Replace relay with known good ones, still blows fuses. Fuck me I've never had so many issues with a driving light harness in my life. Worse comes to worse I've got the H4 patch harness and the remains of a couple of other harnesses I can use if needed.

    I've never used their winches, but the straps and recovery gear is fine.

    I have the winch. More than fine. Not competition quality but I donít really need it to be. I pulled mine apart before install as I needed to clock the ends, looks pretty good on the inside plenty of grease etc.

    Thanks guys itís good feedback. Itís for my little sister, she has just bought a prado and caravan and plans on doing some trips etc. I told her to get the recovery gear and compressor regardless, but if she plans to go out solo even if light off-road having a winch is important. Obviously will let her know that she needs to run the winch out every few weeks and wouldnít be a bad idea to pull apart and inspect each year. Her husband is pretty good with that type of stuff though.

    I think it will suit her needs

    Make sure she does a 4wd course if shes an offroading noob. All the recovery gear in the world wont help someone that doeant know how to use it, and learning what a 4wd can and cant do can potentially save some sticky situations.

    Yeah I imagine the husband will be doing most off-road driving. Have told him to head out locally with mates that know what they are doing and have them a few pointers already. Also YouTube is littered with good recovery information. When they come here for a visit Iíll give them one of the cars and head out properly with them.

    Who do you recommend for courses? E.g. provider?
