    Sounds like car balance not tyre grip

    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.

    Yeah a gauge at the compressor could be the go.

    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.
