Battery reloacation ?

How hard is it to relocate my battery to go into the truck? What would I need to do?

Best bet is to get a relocation kit from online. You can piece one together, but probably gonna run you about the same to just get the kit.

Well I was installing my new radiator and I had to take my battery out and I snapped the lock down bolt and couldn't get the battery till I pretty much chopped the Sh*t out of the battery stand / mount that's in the front

Well most drag cars have it for weight distribution, and for an easy turn on/off switch on the bumper. Its good to have, but not a necessity for a D.D.

Yeah, nothing wrong with doing it, its relatively cheap (in the grand scheme of things), and will transfer weight to the rear obviously. Lol

Actually you offset almost 80 lbs of weight since your moving the weight to the rear of the vehicle which helps with the front to rear weight ratio. I personally have a relocation kit in my fox. It was a not a bad install at all. One of my recent posts has some pics of it. Just make sure you have good grounds; just like everything else. In addition, make sure you keep your pos cable away from harms way. I dont know the difference it will make yet because I still have it up on jacks but it should be done it a few weeks.

Your standard issue mustang websites, i.e. cjponyparts, latemodelresto, americanmuscle. You could probably get one at the big box part stores too

Relocate. It's simple. U can run the wire under the car. If ur worried about it run it thru some old garden hose. U might want to put a distribution block back there too.

U could actually run your solenoid back there too.
