Mottobatt are hands down the best batteries I've ever owned. Expensive but we'll worth it in my experience.

You finally got someone to fit it in. Looks great!

Jealous with that wheel carrier, free's up a heap of space in the wheel well...

I just cant have that wilco carrier on due to garage space.

do what i do and remove it when not needed . around town i just carry a puncture repair kit as how often do you shred a sidewall and actually need a spare with at's

I'll put the carrier on tonight and take some pics for you markus

here ya go markus . i prefer the location of the tyre as it doesn't obscure your vision out the back unlike the uneek rear bar where the tyre is much higher up . Will see how it goes with the hitch if it drags when off on a trip weekend next

$850 from memory from 4wdusa in bayswater , you will need to get some spacers due to the offset of the GC rims though . i learnt that the hard way
