Relocated my battery

So I decided to move the battery into the back of the tub; one of my wheeling buddies hooked me up with all the wiring/breaks/distro blocks since he works in an audio shop so that was nice. It was an easy mod. I decided to finish it off with some PVC flex conduit (couldn't run the big fat 0 gauge under the Jeep since it would run next to the exhaust). I think it looks good - but I'll probably paint it black so it doesnt stick out too much. The battery box itself has a 200A circuit breaker inside in case of a short in the cable (dont want any firey mishaps in there), and the junction box also fuses the starter and distro box - so it's off slightly better stock as far as safety goes.







I still need to get some looming aorund the wiring - but I didn't have the right size at home. It should blend in nicely with the conduit and look fairly "factory" - so ignore all the bare wires right now.

So why exactly did I do all this?

Well after I complete the engine/drivetrain swap this year; I'm going to get this front end fabbed up:



But that's another project for another time! And yes those are 40" tires with still just 4" of lift

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!
