Looking for a Second battery tray and a new intake elbow

I'm looking for a second battery tray in place of the air box. And also a longer extended intake elbow so i can move my intake to the other side of the engine compartment. Companies that are in Canada is great.

For the tray, try an Auto-wrecker.
As for the extended elbow, you're probably out of luck buying one, you'll need to make one out of something, a decent hardware store should have what you need, get creative.

Might want to check the possibility that an OE tray might work. As to elbow, while not pretty, check out schedule 20 pvc fittings at a lowes ect. Bit out of my scope.

not sure how helpful this is but here goes. with the durango air hat you can rotate the intake any way you please which would aid in the second batterie tray in the engine bay.or run a dual battery set up in the trunk

check out a TJ, iirc the TJ runs their airbox on the passenger side, but you might run into an issue with clearance of the hood.

I used to run two optimas under the hood of my 5.9. Used a short ram intake (trimmed down), and had a local fabricator make me a secondary battery tray out of angle iron.

Worked well, id have to dig around for pictures.

I been doing some reading and i essentially just have to get a second battery tray from another ZJ put it in where the airbox is. But i need to swing my air intake to the passenger side, but i need a longer intake elbow to go over the valve cover. Any idea what i could use for a new elbow and where to get one?

Hmmmmm unfortunately I can't do the air hat since I have the 4L. So I have to go with a longer elbow to clear the valve cover to the passenger side.

Put the airbox inboard of your brake master cylinder and behind the throttle body on the intake, since you have a 4.0 and there's room.
I'm doing the same with mine in the near future when I add a second battery to mine, only I have less room in that area, since I have the 5.2L V8.

I'm also re-plumbing the inlet for the airbox after I relocate it, so I can go to cowl induction.
