Looking forward to your pictures and summary. I was going to do the 2 6v battery mod till I figured out the nose of the TT doesn't allow me to mount them in the existing battery rack.

I just added a battery holder on the top of my frame rails for my 6's. Right above where the single 12 went.. I have photos of it posted here in the Mod's section

Well, I had to step up my conversion to the two 6ers. Some not so upstanding piller of society decided to help themselves to my 12 volt ( which I should not have left in the open, unlocked). I purchased a battery box to hold the two six volt T 105 Trojans. I will have to strap the box on the tongue area until I can fabricate a new bracket to hold it. The batteries are in the garage safely now hooked up to the battery tender where I should have had the old one. Oh well, live and learn.

Update: Heres a couple of pics of what I plan on doing. Pic 1 shows the old battery frame/holder which I intend to cut off and build a new one to accomodate the new battery box (Pic 2) which will hold my new Trojan T-105 6 volters.. In this pic, I just have the new box sitting on the old frame and I will use tie downs to hold it until I can get the new stuff fabricated. I'll update as I go. I plan on building a locking metal strap to encapsulate the box to stop further thievery.

This is the temporary set up till I can get the mounting fabricated. They're going to have to work pretty hard to steal these batteries.

I have the same trailer and had the same problem. I ended up cutting the existing angle brackets off then had a new shelf welded on for $150 that holds a torklift box and 2 6 volts. The shelf sits about 4" below the bottom of the tonge frame. I think it looks sharp. Ill take a couple of photos for you when it comes back from the dealer in a couple of weeks.
