where do you find a good non-universal, bolt in 5th gen battery tray/mount kit for $20, let alone $100? The shrockworks kit with air pump relocation is 250. >300 if you get the blue sea ACR/fuse mount for the driver side battery tray as well. I think even the upper passenger side mounts are like 120+ but those have problems cracking or tearing the fender.

I used an ML-ACR which is about $180. I looked up the solenoid used in the genesis kit and even that is >100 by itself.

I suppose you "could" do a budget build for the pricing you mention. I guess it depends on a persons budget/needs etc.

The batteries are universal.......why not the tray?
Vinyl-Coated Steel Battery Trays

Less than $11, I drilled one hole and it bolted right in using the threaded holes already in the fender wells. It hasn't let me down yet. It worked so good I wasted another $11 on the other side and ditched the OEM plastic one, where it again, pretty much bolted right in using existing threaded holes.

The battery tray that ships with your 4runner? Is a flat piece of plastic $32!! probably fits about 100 different model years. There is a hell of a lot more of those running around that the $100+ versions.

Here's a link to Dual batteries on the cheap
