Re: Found the Battery (pics)...

I wonder if this will cause any issues later on if the battery was changed to a larger one?

Never knew this spot existed. It seems like one could place some amps under the driver seat in the tub and run the power cables right across to the passenger side and tap right off the battery directly with a short lead. Drill a hole in the lid to run the wires to the battery then seal the hole with a grommet and some sealant. Seams like it should work and much easier than running cables all the way up front to the engine compartment.

Re: Found the Battery (pics)...

During last weeks Jeep Engineering Chat I asked the following questions and received answers to some of my questions as noted below. However, I still have some related questions that I was hoping someone could answer (additional pictures enclosed for clarity). Thanks!

Engineering Chat Question:
There are compartments/covers under the front seats. The passenger side contains the battery of course. But the drivers side compartment has one of several configurations:
1. Empty 2. Bracket and one electronic box with connectors/cables 3. Bracket and three or four electronic boxes with connectors/cables.
What are these various configurations? What additional measures were taken to make these undercarriage compartments water tight? Are these compartments a carry-over from the Mercedes underpinnings?

Engineering Chat Answer:
Regarding the Mercedes question, the front floor system and underseat compartments are very similar. We also design the floor to seal from underbody water and the lids for simple spills.


So...I took some additional pictures to show the different configurations. The one with the bracket and electronic box shows one unit. Several days later a saw another configuration with four electronic boxes but didn't have a camera to take a picture.

Any thoughts??

Re: Found the Battery (pics)...

Great info and pics. I was wondering if someone with the Alpine amp could take a peek in the box and see if it is stashed away in there. I'm figuring it's either there or in the back quarter behind the subwoofer.
