Default Dual Battery Solenoid Location?

For those of you who have done dual batteries in your FZJ80, where did you mount your solenoid? I have the National Luna kit to install and I can't find a place I like. So far the interior of my ARB is where I'm thinking. Then I could link the winch in the middle of the solenoid and main battery. Thoughts?

My National Luna is in the same place as Treeroots.

Nice, Mike. I had so many relays and ground wires and in line fuses stuffed in there... man that looks clean.

I've got a pair of group 31's so I don't have the space in that location.

Corbet, I've put them on the backside of the passenger side battery tray. I hole-saw an extra hole in the battery tray for wire routing, makes a nice clean install without taking up too much real estate. I'll try and find a pic.

Kurt, I looked at that as my 2nd choice. I plan to upsize the solenoid like Mike so that is what got me thinking about other locations. Post the picture when you have time. I don't think I'm going to tackle this before CM12. See you next week.
