Can you fit an entertainment battery in the engine bay of the Revo 2.8?
If so what size battery? Rumour has it that a 105 ah is too big.
In addition who has a battery mounting bracket?
Thanks!

This has been done with some modifications. Some guys move the existing battery to the open space and then have enough space to fit a 105 in the existing bay. Some guys have gone for a smaller capacity battery in the open space and some guys even installed a 105 Ah battery with some modifications in the open space. Trimming down brackets and rerouting pipes etc.

There are a number of threads on the 4x4community forum on this.

Have a chat to Jaco at Lobiz4x4 as he has a big battery in his truck, he is in Pomona. Also check out Frontrunner as they sell a bracket for a smaller, I think 75A battery as well.

A reroute - moving the crank battery - is pretty easy. Just get a bracket for it in the available space - and a 105 will fit in it's place.
