I managed to get the Waeco DC40 installed today.
First job was to lift the rear seats... Nice and easy on the Jeep, just undo 2 bolts, and 2 nuts, then hinge them up out the way, exposing the carpet underneath. I did have to use a luggage strap to tie the seat up.
For some reason, the carpet is moulded and raised about an inch from the floor, but once lifted, I could see it was to clear some studs welded to the floor. I cut the carpet in the area where the DC40 was to go.
I then removed the 2 studs that were in my way, and also trimmed the mount for the DC40, to fit into the space. The seats on the jeep move forward, and also lower when folded, to make the loading area flat. By putting the DC40 right back, means as the seats fold down and move forward, it leaves the DC40 in the gap behind.
Once the studs were cut off, I painted the area to protect it from rust. I used a touch up paint, which dried a lot lighter than the photo shows.
All mounted in position.
I used 50amp Anderson connectors to connect it all up, and ran the cables between the battery locations.
These are then all hidden under the carpet, the seats all bolted back down, and everything hidden away and safe.
There is a remote control cable for the DC40, which will be run up to a switch on the dashboard, so I can choose to switch it off, if the main battery is low, and I want all the charge to go into that.
Next job is the install the battery.
