I've been brain storming the battery tray, how to support the 54 lb battery and not have it tear the sheet metal and fall through on the ground. Not having FEA (finite element analysis) at my disposal I opted for over kill from underneath. Not quite pleased with the support, came up short on the diagonal supports, literally. And I found out that I could have some tire to battery support interference. But I did remeasure the hood clearance for the battery and I have 4" from to play with. Contemplating raising the floor of the tray to move it away from the tire. I'm sure that the 2" spring lift kit will provide plenty of clearance but want to be sure.
