Where is the battery?

When I took delivery of my 2014 Overland on Friday I had the sales guy pop the hood to be sure I knew where everything was. Good thing I did because neither of us could find the battery. We found the +/- leads for jump starting the car, but no indication on where the battery actually is, and the manual says nothing. Is the 12v battery in these even user serviceable, or did Jeep hide it away somewhere that you'd need a lift to get at it?

I hope that salesperson was new like the first day selling Jeeps, the battery has been under the front seat since 2011!

How do you get to it? I can't find anything in the owner's manual that even mentions it.

During my quest to get a new Jeep I dealt with 5 different salespeople at 3 different dealerships, and I knew more from just reading the brochure than most of them knew. It's been my experience that the salespeople at non-luxury dealerships have high turnover, and they're just there to make a buck, but don't generally care or know anything about the cars. I'm sure there are exceptions, but in my case they were all clueless. The same salesguy didn't even know that my car came with a year of free Sirius and uConnect. I found that out when I got home.

So.... how does one get to the battery under the passenger seat?

Slide the front passenger seat all the way forward and from the rear lift open the battery access panel in the floor.
