New Battery Box Bottom

Recommended Posts

You can find them on Watt's for something resonable (not for free of course).

I also wish to have a pair although will go welding due to a shipping cost.

Leslie, any plans for new SS covers?

Hi Leversole

wow. guess i got a good deal. paid 150 a peice for my bottoms and 100 a piece for my chrome tops for my B model. got them from Cook Brothers Mack in Binghamton Ny. has to make brackets to clear the air tank to put the R model box on but it looks nice. pass box is just for storage, or a 30 pack for truck shows, just happens to fit perfect .......... you see them on ebay from time to time cheap. someone must have bought a shitload of them. wish i bought the stack or original B model boxes that Tidewater Mack had at Macungie back in 94'. make me cry

When my B boxes were bad, I got some 14ga(or 12?) and had the three sides bend up to allow welding it to the sidewalls of exising box. Cheap fix, will NEVER rust out in my lifetime. I only run one box now(2 batteries), as it starts fine with two. The first 4 batteries lasted 10yrs, but too costly to replace so I only got 2.
