Yes that is the RB Components tray. I bought because I did not want to start from scratch on yet another bracket. Itís a nice piece. Turns out after some head scratching I found another place to put my heater expansion tank so what was originally a place to mount a heat exchanger and tank will now hold two more batteries.

@dbedy thanks for the info. Donít you already have two batteries under the vehicle? And are you adding another 2 more batteries under the hood? Following your build closely because my crew van is coming and I will also be going with the adwag 2.0 kit and RB components tray.

Yes I do plan on adding another couple 250 amp full rivers. To much battery is never a bad thing.

RedArc bms 30 install completed tonight. Itís a tight fit but it fits nicely once it has been finagled into its home.
Wiring was pretty simple, and the specs are within the body upfitter guidelines. I did spring for the parts to connect the battery charger and alternator feed exactly per MB upfitter guide. Since Iím not a professional shop I donít want to have the finger pointed at me later if there is an issue.

I did

Bus bar in f150/4 fuse box. A9075454100
F150/5 fuse box. A9075402605
F150/5 fuse box cover. A9075454600

Other parts needed at 2awg cable and accompanying lugs, and nuts to hold those lugs down.

You will also need fuse link N000000-006620

Thanks!

Where did you find the parts for sale? I did a quick search but didnít find anything online that didnít look sketchy.

I know people are dealership averse, but I usually just go to the parts counter at my local dealership.
The guys get to know you and want to help you find the tough parts. This was a great example of that as the f150/5 fuse box part number had been superseded 3 times.
