OK so I've been looking at the engine bay for quite some time now on my 97 Jeep cherokee. Then it was totaled then gone. Now I have a 2000 Jeep Cherokee and I just noticed this.
In the picture you can see I've moved the coolant reservoir and put in the old battery bracket(for illustration purposes)
Couple of questions.
Will it work(I know it will but what about the heat from the engine?) Do you think the heat will have an above average impact on the battery system itself?
I'm not formilar with how much heat a battery can take so would it be to close to the engine with all the heat? One would think it would be fine.
anyways my goal. Dual battery setup. One by the engine and the other where the air filter is.
Air filter relocated into the cowl.
And york air compressor in the place of the OEM battery location.
Coolant reservoir tank gets moved next to the york(if enough room) or possible put same place just opposite side of engine bay.(air filter side)
Does anyone see any problems with this setup?
I was wondering why I hadn't heard of this idea sooner but then 2000-2001 are distributerless systems. So the 99 and down would have the distributer in the way.
Let me know what you think.
