Battery Relocation Ideas

Like To Move My Battery Out Of The Engine Compartment For a Cleaner Look. Any Ideas?

Want To Run a Remote Lugs Just In Case The Battery Dies
( Behind The License Plate Maybe) And Wires For Accessories. Thanks.. Also Should I Run a Remote Starter Solenoid?

Re: Battery Relocation Ideas

I have heard of people using "Drop Down Battery Boxes" and mounting them behind the front passenger wheel or under the bed somewhere.

I am a fan of the remote solenoid, but not for any partricular reason. Some of my builds have them and some don't. My cars that are hard to get to the starter have the remote solenoid, my trucks do not.

Re: Battery Relocation Ideas

Making the electrical system more complicated is a bad idea.
