    3rd Gen (96-02) 4 Runner Custom battery hold down

    I have been making these for 1st Gen Tacomas for a while. This mounts like the stock hold down and is made out of aluminum. Unlike the stock battery hold down, there are adjustable jaws on the bottom side to adjust to the width of non-stock batteries. This adjustment goes to a minimum of 6” to a maximum of 7”. This can be adjusted to fit the sides of the battery snuggly.

    I stock these in a textured black powdercoat with a gloss red TRD engraved on top. Other colors are possible as a special order or during a group buy.

    These are a couple of cad models.

    For powdercoated versions, the price is $95. J hooks and hardware are included. Starting April 1, 2021 shipping will be extra.

    For raw aluminum versions (no coatings), the price is $75. J hooks and hardware are included. Starting April 1, 2021 shipping will be extra.

    I have had a few people on Tacoma World, report that have had non-sealed batteries leak a little around the fill caps. If the acid leaks, it will attack the aluminum in the hold down. If you have a sealed battery, this is not a problem. While there have been a few instances of people with this problem, there are a lot of people that have conventional, non-sealed batteries that use these battery hold downs without an issue. Since there have been a few instances, I am warning people that do not have sealed batteries.

    If I was considering one of these for purchase, I might co-ordinate this with a sealed battery upgrade.

    I’m thinking Cavalry Blue or Orange. Maybe get a bronze from Eastwood. Take a bunch of bolts and parts off to do at the same time.
