    I've mentioned this before, but that tray doesn't really do anything. It's a super thin plastic. I put a 27f battery in and just removed the stock tray. The only thing I could see the tray doing is catching some battery acid if you had a wet battery type, but the sealed batteries don't leak so that tray is pointless.

    That is a great looking grill. Where can one get that?

    EDIT: "Tacovinyl" I thought they just sold inserts. Doh!

    100%. I've had mine in there like that for over a year now, went on multiple wheeling trips (I live in the Rockies), and that battery hasn't moved at all.

    Where you should spend your money is on a battery tie down like the one from sdhq or off-grid engineering.

    You can also just set the battery on top of the factory tray. It works all the same.

    To each his own. If the battery does start to leak the tray will catch it. No tray then will get corrosion in the metal tray bracket. The tray is there for a reason. Same as carrying a spare tire. Doesn't touch the ground so do you really need it ?

    A sealed agm battery is not going to leak.

    Also, why does Off-Grid engineering sell these battery trays with holes in them? There's no tray to catch leaks on these. In their installed pictures they don't have any plastic tray underneath.

    https://www.**************/collections/battery-trays

    For the factory battery that definitely does leak (mine did), a plastic tray underneath is a good idea.

    Edit: Dunno why the link didn't share correctly.

    Not knocking the no tray for AGM batteries. I don't use AGM batteries so I have a tray. I don't think average drivers use AGM batteries.

    I’m sorry, I have a very hard time seeing people wanting to try something as being a “victim”. If you can’t understand that there are risks involved in riding an 80 year old airplane (especially after reading the waiver) I’m not overly concerned by an early departure from the gene pool. But I guess everyone is a victim these days. I feel really bad for those base jumpers that don’t deploy in time.

    To each his own. I love my RTT. I just put it on when I’m going camping, otherwise it stays stored in my garage.

    Not everyone is an aviation professional so I disagree here. Base jump? Yeah, that's apples and apples....but the apparent assumed risks are really different. More like you're base jumping after an 8 year old packed your chute.

    Waivers did not include poor maintenance practices or unqualified maintenance personnel. It's one thing to take your friend out in an old plane, but another to provide 'fun' rides to paying passengers.

    Nine-o-Nine has been doing flights as long as I can remember (I’ve been in it a bunch of times - used to fly to my airport in Indiana every year, song with a b-24 [dragon and his tail]). As with most aviation incidents, from what I read it was (at least largely) pilot error (though there are always a lot of links in the chain with aircraft crashes).

    But to each his own. I’ve been on jets with IFEs and ‘donated fluids’ after Class A mishaps. You gotta know there are risks involved in anything you do - and if the juice is worth the squeeze. For many folks it is.

    p.s. ‘Merlin’ refers to a v-12 (mostly used in fighters). B-17s had radial engines. Not sure if that’s more or less impressive :)
