Battery tray

I bought that one at the end of last year, it was around 50 dollars, then I bought a lawnmower battery from True Value for $35.

I don't need a battery, just got a yellowtop optima, and well your battery tray looks like it would fit, i'll email Ryan.

I used a tray I built at work and mounted it on the front subframe against the firewall. Even more out of the way. and FWIW, you can buy Glass MAT small batteries at Advance Auto now. 12v, good cold crank amps, and about 15 pounds.

I am big into recycling though and if your not into sacrifice or burnt offerings, you may want to stick with 93 octane.

cool, I made my own nonblingtastic tray for my galant for free

it was my first time using a MIG welder, so it ain't pretty, but it works.

I bought a Kinetik HC800 Power Cell on ebay for 120... but they can be had for much less

My SLA battery is laying down in the stock location, with the air intake on top of it. All more or less in the stock locations

The Non-spillable Glass MAT batteries are great for throwing anywhere and zip tying down. From Advance, they are pretty cheap as well. I think I paid 70 bucks for mine and unlike the large motorcycle batteries, they come charged.

I'm considering doing this. I have a gvr4zum battery tray but I'm debating on that, the trunk or what you said. Probably one of the latter two, because the gvr4zum tray (while a very nice, quality piece) is a lot of weight right over the wheels.
