    So I am having problems with finding room under the hood for a second battery. I was wondering if the URD TCAI opened up room in the passenger side where the stock intake is that is large enough for a yellow top battery. Can someone measure this for me? The dimensions of the battery are 10" long, 7" wide and 8" tall.

    P.S. Does anyone have pics of it?

    Thanks in advanced

    Why not make a box so it sits behind the ABS pump against the firewall. There is plenty of room there.

    Can you measure it out for me? The battery is 11" long, 7" wide and 8"s tall. The URD TCAI looks like it opens up some space up over on the passenger side. Thanks

    Sorry I don't own that intake. It was a pic from the URD website. If you are offroading it is a bad choice for an intake anyway,

    I have a TRD intake:

    I don't offroad so a URD would suit me fine. It looks like it makes enough room but I need somebody to measure it for me a buy a URD one and realize I don't have enough room for the battery.
