    Been trying to figure out how I can keep both storage box and aux bat tray. I would start a new thread but rather post it here just incase I can make something happen. Has anybody attempted to install the storage box here? The lines are in the way but if i relocated the bracket it looks possible. My concern is the lines will be a tad closer to the manifolds. And 2 the box would be touching the alternator. My goal is to give it at least 1/4 of space but does anybody know is this is a by far bad idea????

    If it's not making contact with the alternator or drive belt, you should be okay. Just be sure you have at least 1/2" clearance ( more is better because stuff does flex some under the hood). And be sure whatever is close to the manifold has clearance. (Which manifold, intake or exhaust? ) Probably have to fab a bracket or 2, aluminum or steel bar stock would work. My dad used to do a lot of that type of stuff on our vehicles.
    BTW, what do you keep in your Burb's storage box? Trying to decide what's going in mine ( once I get it in, gotta get a washer bottle first). I noticed when cleaning the ones I got, that there's a 20 pound limit, and it specifically says not to put chemicals in it. Don't remember the exact words, but that's what they meant. An oil bottle would have to be on its side to fit anyway.

    That idea was short lived lol. The intake box too big. Doesn't fit. What I kept in here was grease, motor oil, power steering fluid, zipties, electrical tape, towels, knife, vice grips, gloves, and funnel

    Yeah, I'm thinking along those lines. If I can find bottles that are short enough to fit. The box is a good idea, but they were limited in the space to put it to start with. And oil bottles were probably shorter back in the mid 90s when they designed it. Some guys have said they keep booster cables in theirs; mine are heavy gauge and won't roll up that small. At least I can keep funnels and a couple of shop rags in it....

    At first glance, I thought the box fan was being used as a jack stand.
