Battery

Sure this has been discussed before.

BUT ... just found out battery is under front seat on 2013 JGC.

Do you have to remove the seat to get to it?

Thankx...

No, just push the seat forward all the way and fold the back rest forward. Still a pain in the... but I believe you can get it out that way.

Never tried removing the battery but I hope it can be done without seat removal. That would be a major pain.

Dabitz,

Passenger front seat has amazing forward travel.

Looks as if this will work ...

No issues yet ... just asking for future reference.

Thankx!

There are only like four bolts holding the seat rails to the floor, pretty easy to remove. I think power seats move forward enough but manual seats need to be loosened and pushed outa the way.

probably to make room for the hemi... there's like a foot of extra empty space in the engine bay if you have a V6.

I think it has more to do with keeping the battery cool. Several manufactures put the battery in the trunk when there is plenty of room in the engine compartment.

My charger patrol car has the battery in the trunk. Is it for weight Distribution maybe? Lower CG?. Arent there issues with fumes from batteries as they age?

They have to be vented, you may see a vent tube running from the battery to the outside.

Anyone else find it strange that the lowest point in a Jeep is the battery? Meaning that if there is any water intrusion on the vehicle the first thing that will get submerged is the battery, thus causing everything to short out.

Lower center of gravity, less extreme heat, more engine bay space, etc...

Can you think of any negatives of having it inside the Jeep's cab? I mean seriously...
