    I am reassembling my '72, and having a hard time identifying where the battery tray goes. I have already done searches of the site, but am unable to figure it out.
    The PO of my Blazer rigged a bat tray, welding it @ 3 points to the pass side inner fender. My assembly manual shows that it goes up against the radiator support, but I don't see where.

    Does anyone have a pic that they can send me, please? I plan to mount a battery on each side, or has anyone tried to squeeze them together on one side?

    Thanks.

    Here's where the battery is mounted in my 70 Blazer. Sorry not a very good pic. My 69 K20's battery is in the same place.

    Yup they mount to the rad. support. I have both sides installed in my K5.

    the brackets are fairly simple. the leg next to radiator goes down about 15" and the leg next to the fender is only about 6" long. then the 'tray' connects to both legs that bolt to the rad. support.
    Hope this helps
