Looking good, so what kind of interesting electronic controllers do you there on your LH side pop up window?

Thanks guys. The DS cabinet houses the factory battery, the aux battery, a National Luna split charge relay, blue sea systems fuse block, ham radio, and pictured is also a dual output solar controller with display that I am getting away from (ends up I prefer the controller that is part of my Overland Solar panel better), tan pelican box is my BLS medical kit.

Just saw this for first time. Fantastic execution. Great to see as I develop some solutions for the Wolf.

I really like it.

One reason I never did a full set up like this in my Defender, is because I never could find the hardware! The latches, the rollers, etc... where do you get that stuff? I'm not going to build something with Home Depot kitchen drawer pulls!

Yes, a super sweet build. The battery on the Europa trucks is in that DS rear wheel arch, so access to that would be important. It sounds like Jimbo has an aux battery nearby there as well. I would love to do a modified version of this as well. Access to parts and design is a hurdle tho.

Thanks Guys, Hardware is w/o a doubt the hardest to settle on. There is so much crap out there. The slides I used are all 500# Knape and Voight sourced from the internet, I cant remember exactly where but a search will find you the best prices. I do have to say, I wish I went with the much more expensive Accuride drawer slides as they have much better locking tabs. All in all, I am happy w/ the K&V slides.
Yes my Aux battery was added into the driver rear compartment and the stock battery is under the floor of said hatch, accessed through a floor hatch. There is JUST enough room to fish the stock battery in and out through the hatch when needed.

Great build and write up. Thank you.

Does it take some getting use to not being able to see out the back/sides? I’m about ready to install my system but kept it below window level. I don’t use my rear seats and wanted a complete flat surface in back for dogs and fridge when camping. Hope your out enjoying the fruits of all your hard work.
