actually, the panel he's got there would be awesome... but he needs to add some sort of a waterproof/resistant cover to it to convince me...

I'm even gonna think about one

Optima Battery Box

Here's another feeler thread - not sure where to put it so it goes here for now....

Had to replace my battery a month after I got it from the dealer... oh well... Went to Costco and got my Optima Red Top for $130. Went to put it in and it's a good 2" smaller (in length) and 1- 1¼" shorter than the stock battery... and I've had it bungee'd in place ever since.

I started thinking about what to do with it, and was looking around for store-bought options when this idea came to me....



Basically the top bar unbolts for when you need to remove the battery, and is screwed/bolted/welded down (or 3M Velcro for some of you )

Made out of what I expect will be 1/8" Alum (or equiv) and powdercoated or raw (so you can finish how you'd like).

My question is: How many of you TW users have replaced your battery with an Optima and need a solution like this?

Me! LOL. I'm using the stock tie down with a perfectly shaped and sized piece of wood between the tie down and the top of the battery. It works surprisingly well.

Your idea looks interesting.

I've refrained from doing just that... a block of wood.

IMO, the only place wood had in a vehicle is either on a rack in the bed (as in transporting it) or in a subwoofer box (or a speaker baffle appropriately sealed)

If nothing happens over the weekend, I'll call Will and find out about closing early, say Tuesday... that way if everyone pays by Wednesday, hopefully we could have them delivered by the weekend.

whats the max amps this block can handle continuous draw? I know max is 30amps per fuse. But I have a feeling when my truck is built all 12 fuses will be pull close to 20-30 amps each.

According to this, it's 30a max per circuit, but 100a per block. Put that in perspective, that's 8.33 amps max for each circuit. Now there's not too many options for running circuits smaller than that, in terms of fuse rating... 1, 2, 5, & 7.5a fuses going from memory.

Without consulting with Will @ Sierra or getting ahold of Blue Sea, I would imagine that 100a rating is pretty conservative. In terms for what I plan on doing, I've got 5 circuits to hook up as soon as I get this:
1. Alarm/Remote Start (25a)
2. Window module #1 (30a)
3. Window module #2 (30a)
4. HID headlights (20a)
5. Camper shell lights (10a)

Added up, that's 115a worth of fuse rating... but bear in mind that not all of these will be running at the same time. In reality, only my HID's will be running a majority of the time. Camper lights, rarely... Window mods, they run when the alarm tells them to...

Sor for the majority of the time, I'll only have a max of 20a running through the block.

I guess the question is "what are you running and how often will each of them, or any combination of them, be running at the same time?"

Is there an alternate route that allows for more? if not, I'm in.
12 position with ground.

So is the circuit breaker good to add? You just run power from batter to breaker, then breaker to the block right?

Not really... From what I've read and researched, Blue Sea makes good stuff, mainly designed for marine applications but those applications transfer over to auto use very well. I don't think that you're gonna find anything that allows for more, as most of these things are typically made with very similar components and materials.

As for the breaker, I personally am against them... I'd be looking to a fuse block but as Will @ Sierra Expeditions has stated, they offer the circuit breaker to fill a need for those that go well away from civilization where there isn't a readily available supply of spare fuses.

Bring that I'm only putting the fuse block a foot away from the battery and not running the power wire around anything metal, I'm actually not gonna put a fuse/breaker between the block and the battery.

But that's my preference. I'll add ya to the list.
