    Summit and Jegs offer "trunk mount" battery kits that include brackets, boxes, cables, and eveything else needed to mount your battery or batteries out back. not only does this solve your lack of battery tray problem, but it will better balance your rig by moving weight off of the heavy end, to the light end.

    yea heater is in same spot but that is all removed ... i think im just gonna run it to the very back passs side in the cab or maybe inside the floorboard on pass side and protect it with some rock siders ... i am pretty sure my tires come up to high to put the batteries on the firewall [​IMG]
