    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great relocation kit, but..... I recently purchased this battery kit and found it to be a very nice product. After receiving it I opened the boxes and checked the parts in box as well as the instructions. In the instructions it said to use the 2 90 degree brackets on the 3/8 rods to properly bolt the kit to your car. I searched in the box for the 90 degree parts and I did not find them but the 3/8 rods were there. I reached out to Jegs and explained that the 2 brackets were missing and the unit could not be safely secured. Jegs quickly sent me the 2 brackets in about 2 days. The thing is, the 2 brackets which are pretty much mandatory to properly install the kit isn't listed on their web listing which I found strange. Jegs, you guys are the best but you should probably look into what is the cause of this problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The box I great, comes in a complete kit. Box is super big thou. I had to run an Interstate MT-49/H8 battery which is a 900CCA battery. But product is amazing, fit beautiful in the trunk of my drifting 240sx and installation was easy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good starting point for battery relocation I bought this kit to put my 1964 Lincoln's battery in the trunk. The box and the cables are of decent quality. The hold-down is a little awkward and required notching the top of the box for clearance. The little nylon clamps supplied are too flimsy to hold the 2AWG cable- invest in some adel clamps (JEGS calls them 'Stainless Steel Cushion Clamps') I say the kit is a good starting point because you should never run a positive battery cable from one end of your car to the other- there's no way to fuse-protect it and it's a fire hazard. I put a Ford solenoid in the trunk too, and made a short battery-to-solenoid cable. I used the rest of that long 'battery cable' as a long STARTER cable- that way the huge wire under your seat is only hot when the starter is energized. I ran a separate 4AWG hot lead to the front of the car, protected by a 100A circuit breaker.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok the cable and battery box are useful, the hardware doesnt fit my needs,the battery cable is good, the battery box strap is not long enough to go around the box with or with out the lid,,,its about 5 inches short in length , so im off looking for stuff to make it work

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice This is a good kit comes with everything needed. The only thing is kinda jank is you have to cut slots in the plastic box for the mounting bolts but other than that the box is pretty premo

    What are the 2 circled ended crimped connectors for? I assume one is to attach the negative cable to a metal surface via a screw or bolt, is the 2nd one just extra or is it needed to attach the positive somewhere?

    Asked by: 502_STI
    You will normally attach the positive to the starter or the battery switch.

    I guess you have to drop the gas tank to anchor the box?

    Asked by: Newman
    I actually mounted mine in the trunk floor beside the tank, but my tank is part of my floor so unable to mount it just above the tank. Depending on your application and if you are trying to balance weight, you can put it off to one side or the other to avoid the tank.

    How does the box secure to the trunk so it doesn't slide around? Is that hardware included as well?

    Asked by: BrettB
    There are long 3/8" bolts that go through tabs on the side of the box. You would drill your trunk floor/truck bed floor/etc for these to go through then secure them with the supplied washers and lock nuts. All necessary hardware is supplied with the kit.
