    Hello

    I am Coupe.

    I have been on XRU & TacomaWorld for several years.

    I have been selling the TRD battery hold downs for the Tacomas on Tacomaword since 2012. Here is the link there: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/fs-trd-battery-hold-downs.250615/
    The narrow version fits well on a 5th Gen 4-Runner. I have not tested it on other years.

    6de40974-e268-4bf1-8d65-a2c4e5cd20bd_zps_54b93745c62e56edc9c178239c6ab4984082e143.jpg

    trdbh%20006_zpsjbazeecg_581d1e36dd4dd4acb5fcbc756b9898d83f6adad9.jpg

    These are the dimensions of the NARROW version.

    BatteryHoldDown%20-%20NARROW_zpsfgqjlni5_9281ee8534cabce23e5d6db947f9fc47cb01b926.jpg

    This fits well with a stock battery.

    https://www.4runners.com/threads/csuvipers-wifes-4runner-build.1581/page-2

    I also make a wide version. This will NOT work with a standard battery. You will need over 1 1/8" between the center battery caps to make this work.

    trdbatt2%20005_zpsel4i1xan_50ee826797e9dc1a2756abbf23ff27a6c36dae75.jpg

    This is basically the same battery hold down bracket as the narrow, but the center section is wider at 1" to allow for better graphics. It also makes for a beefier bracket.

    This is a side by side comparison.

    These are the dimensions of the wide version.

    There are a few random pics.

    I also have an adjustable jaw version. This is for people using Northstar or other aftermarket batteries that may be slightly wider or narrower than stock.

    It is a more robust version of the wide version. It will NOT fit a stock battery. Here are a few pics.

    trdbatt2%20009_zps1vbc1bxy_0bb65a1f49ac8d85015f8eee7f40498b7a85b0ad.jpg

    The bottom side of this has adjustable jaws that can be adjusted to most battery widths.

    Assy1_zpsjyjahtfy_8fedba3d6469e262f1486bd49e1e87c0c777e575.jpg

    I make these in small batches, so I can adjust to the colors and styles most people want.

    I offer the raw aluminum versions for people that want to hydrodip or paint their own bracket.

    Prices are:

    For the Fixed Narrow and Wide versions, RAW ALUMINUM, no coatings are $55.

    For the Fixed Narrow and Wide versions, powdercoated or brushed aluminum, logo painted, then clearcoated are $75.

    For Wide Adjustable, RAW ALUMINUM, no coatings are $65.

    For Wide Adjustable, powdercoated or brushed aluminum, logo painted, then clearcoated are $85.

    Prices include J hooks and hardware. Starting April 1, 2021 shipping to be extra.

    Key scratches, rear end damage, pine cone dents, stale cheerios.
    If the adjustable fits an Optima red top, I'll take one.

    I have a public service announcement.

    I have had a few people on TW, 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 had these on my 2018 Trd Pro Tacoma they look good however I found that white powder corrosion attacks fast around them So went Old School and put a Felt Pad between the Aluminum tie down, the Battery and oiled the Felt pad some gear oil then where the steel rod pass thru the aluminum I put some heat shrink tube to insulate them from the Aluminum plus I used Plastic washers under the nuts and after that never had any problem again with that Said Yes I will buy em again
