    We were looking for a replacement battery tray.
    Wondering why the same part number is used for 2 different parts..
    The 22F battery and the 24F battery one tray is 9-1/8 long one is 10-1/2
    One doesn’t work with a/c either..

    no way of knowing what they are selling unless they state the dimensions, because both trays have the same part number ...

    the 9-1/8 tray is way to short, holes don’t line up yet everyone states it fits a 1968 Ford Fairlane , or Ranchero

    Mine is a modified tray from a 2006 F-150 (I added a bracket on the bottom from the original tray). It's galvanized and has the lower hold down for added aesthetics.

    I need to do that mod to Babe; the plastic tray's coming apart, and the Group 65 barely fits.

    I made my own from Lexan (acrylic) for my '75 GT. Will not rust and I added a drain hose so drippings will not attack the fender well.

    Macs / Auto Krafters has the bigger tray. You may have to chop down the clamp to fit the fan/shroud/radiator.
