    I have an 1986 k5 Blazer. I would like to add a second batter to the truck for snow plowing. Has anyone seen a factory bolt in battery tray? I thought maybe there was a option back then??

    thanks

    CUCV's have one on the drivers side IIRC and I think that you can get one from the stealership.

    oh yeah, found the part number:

    p\n 15616327 for 81-87 pickups and 81-91 blazers/suburbans

    should cost around $50 at the stealership

    I was looking through my LMC Truck catalog for Blazers (http://www.lmctruck.com) and they have what they call an "auxillary battery tray" or something of the sort for like $13. Check there.

    go to a junk (salvage) yard. My 73 K20 came with it from the factory, and I know I've seen a bunch in yard all around the country.

    Sorry bout that. I forget that not everyone knows WTH those mean. :D Look for a diesel or old military truck in the local salvae yard and you will probably find the tray.

    That auxiliary battery tray is part # 38-6314, but it for years 73-80 only. The battery tray you want fits years 81-91. The passenger's side tray is part #38-6319 and goes for $40 and the driver's side tray is part #38-6318 and is $80.
