Wonder if the engine bay posts (labeled with a little jumper cable diagram, as in place positive cable here and so on) are meant more for the "jumpee" rather than the "jumper"?
nope, it'll work there too, the posts are for everything just like the battery would be there.
i know you guys are not used to battery location but since 1996 i've had always had it either in the trunk or under rear seat, always with terminals in the engine bay, all worked the same and meant to work the same, there's no "jumpee" as you put it..
