Replace switches with an app type system. Yes please!

home automation meets 4x4

shame we cant just do the same with the standard touch screen with just an add on relay box like this system..

The HPW MK2 looks good in it's new clothes. Local'ish to me in Bayswater.
Built for show as it's lifted to the max in the A-arms. Uneek chase rack is tuff.
He's previously said it's built for promo attention, not offroad.

Looks great. Now all he needs is some rated d or bow shackle for the trailer instead of the snap hooks ;) Otherwise looks very good!

I wouldn’t trust the dc charger under there. Too much gravel and water spraying around under there for my liking. And yeah I agree with the snap hooks, if the trailer comes off they can straighten out like a pensioner on viagra ;)

Wow that battery placement is as stupid as their front recovery point under the front diff, $18 k he must have inside the canopy full of Arb gear and front iff lock ect because he didn't even get the good suspension or any bash plates.

the chassis clamped recovery point has good reason for its position but I dont see what they were thinking with under body battery and charger? the guard may stop direct hits but when the guard gets bent from hard hit it will probably drive the steel straight through its case

Maybe but how are you going to use it when you really need it? Or maybe your just meant to drive around with a snatch strap connected to it every time your off road.
I was going to buy full arb gear for mine but after looking at tjm i soon realised they were a much smarter option.

one of my major reasons for swapping the fleet from arb to tjm was the recovery points incorporated into the bullbar. placed up noice and high and easily accessible. id hate to be wheel deep in a sludge filled rut and having to crawl under and attach a strap and shackle to the arb option. just my thoughts :)

not allot of option without a bull bar, sand is fine if I wanted to sink it in mud I would attach a 2m bridle first or the snatch and hook it onto roof tray to hang out the window and give it to recovery vehicle.
if I had a winch I wouldn't really need the recovery point would just hook it to another tow hitch.

Im awaiting the tjm ranger smart bar like the new 200 series they have done.
