    I was checking around and the least expensive tray/ support combo I could find was about $45... I ended up just welding some bent pieces of iron to the wheelwell. Napa had a tray for like $13 and the hold down for about $6...
    I had a group 31 so it was a fair size bigger than a typical starting battery, so I wasn't even sure that the auxillary tray and support would work. I've beat on it pretty hard and so far, so good :D

    The dealership should want around $36 for it. They only used to be 20-23 a few years ago.


    You can take a passenger side tray, drill the spot welds, flip the "foot" support around, and weld it back together to get a driver side tray. The only difference between a driver side tray and a passenger side tray is where that "foot" support is welded.
