Default Optima 34/78 Bolt-in Battery Tray

Our DirtBound Optima battery tray is the only direct bolt-in battery box option available for the Jeep Cherokee. We designed it for easy battery installation using the 78 series optima mounting brackets that come with the 34/78 optima battery.

Tray ships bare steel.

What about those of us that have a battery temperature sensor? Don't really know what it does but it's there...

I received my tray today and installed it. But I did not get the plastic piece that holds it in the front.

I think it says that bracket comes with the batteries.

Ohh... I did not see that. I probably threw that bracket away when I got the battery last year. Thanks for the help.

Looks nice and beefy. I'd also be concerned about the battery temp sensor. That's a pretty important on the later Cherokees, I do believe.

The pic that was there the other day showed a hole cut for the temp sensor.
