Tube Fender vs. Batt. Tray

Ok so heres the deal. My PS tube fenders arrived the night prior to me returning to Iraq. All my prep work cutting bolt pulling and all were done prior.
Well the Batt. trays were not cut deep enough.

I read in the latest JP Mag that some jeepers actually mount batts under the passanger seats. (batt name eludes me the blue top one) Anyone do this mod and if so does the flip of the seat get compromised?

I tell yah I can do anything to a jeep that doesn't involve power I dont know what it is I guess I am just electrically challanged.

I personally would not want a battery in my people compartment. If is a gel batt you could lay it on it's side. I think....

I agree on not wanting a battery in the passenger compartment either. However, none of the upper-end batteries used in Jeeps like Optima, Odyssey, etc. are gel cell batteries like some think they are. They are actually simply sealed lead-acid batteries where the battery acid is in a paste form and not liquid like in conventional batteries.

I have the PS Fenders and on the Pass side I had to modify the battery tray to get the proper fit... dam that was a long fight too with the fender fitting before realizing the battery tray was in the way.

I think that we cut off about 1/4" and then re-welded it.

Can you safely lay and Optima or Odyssey on it's side. i know I have seen them like that but is it a good idea....

Yes, both are fully sealed and neither contains liquid acid.
