    I don't have a pic, but I checked one out in the JY recently. The cannister gets moved down low on the core support, right next to the radiator. I need to take care of the same problem on my '90 Sub, since I added the 2nd battery tray. :doah: Of course, the bracket is different, but I'm gonna try to mod mine to fit.

    Dual Batteries

    If You Have To Modify The Tray Anyways There Is Another Way. Mine Are Side By Side But Offset Diagonally And There Is Plenty Of Room There. The Reason I Did This Is To Make The Cables Shorter For Less Voltage Drop. I Have To Power A Large Inverter On The Trail To Run A Mini Mig In Case Of Breakage So I Wanted All The Power I Could Possibly Get. If Interested I'll Send You Pics.

    i just mounted my bracket to the batt. try, looks pretty slick, i was just wondering what they did stock, if there were already holes for the bracket.
