    So, I just got home after a friend of mine came 30 mins out of her way to boost my battery. I replaced the battery a year ago. There were no signs of the battery dying (i.e. dimming lights, slow crank, etc). I made a few stops to a few friends' houses, about 5 mins away from each other. The...

    I recently relocated my battery to the trunk. This was great for opening up more room in the engine bay but would cause me to loose some in the trunk. I came up with an idea. I could get an Optima Battery and mount it on its side in the spare tire well. You know between your spare tire and...

    Looking to fix up my electrical system a bit. I was gona' start by moving the battery to the trunk. Winters are harsh up here, a lot of salt, a lot of snow. A few things I'd like to clear up. I have a sub and amp in the back already, there are a few wires ran under the carpets and in the door...

    So I need to relocate my battery to the trunk so I can put an air filter on my snail. Is it as simple as just extending the cables all the way to the trunk or am I missing something? Is there a kit to do this with if so LMK
