    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/

    I offer these in two basic versions. A Wide & a Narrow.

    NBTRDbatthold005_1c27d0e2b7ec324523eeac922888c23c0f98e00f.jpg

    Other than the width, there are no differences.

    The Wide is 1" in the middle and the Narrow is 11/16".

    NBTRDbatthold009_479df0a8eacd0a862b62f35a57e4f4aac67bdf80.jpg


    These are the basic dimensions.

    The area on the bottom of the hold down is 7" across. Older versions are 7 1/8". I recently made the change to grip the battery a little better. I still have a few of the 7 1/8" version in stock.

    This is a pic of a narrow raw aluminum version.

    Upon special request, I can paint the TRD letters with a contrasting paint on the billet aluminum ones. This is usually a red or a black.

    Here are a few in powdercoated colors:

    My favorite a textured black powdercoat with red letters.

    TRDBATTHOLDA003_zpsb1749305_bd30761bfba184dbaf4f76658da925b4a60a8296.jpg

    Some people that were Supercharged, wanted a version to match the machined letters on a TRD blower.
    TRD%20BATT%20006_zpsaxtz6mbw_5b1ca11a41fafd20840673302dd79864fcc77436.jpg

    I shipped these with two (2) j-hooks with padded washers and lock nuts.

    When these are used on a Tacoma (2005 & up) you need a 7 1/2" & 9 1/2" J hook. If you use a Northstar battery, you add 1/2" to these lengths.

    I have sold a few to guys with Tundras and they required two (2) 8" long J hooks.

    Price of the raw aluminum (wide or narrow) is $55 shipped (to the lower 48 states). Powercoated versions are $75 shipped.

    I also made this matching cover to a First Gen TRD CAI (or afe St 2) for a Tacoma.

    012_zpss22jevsz_f0b19c7fdbdf3b22f58b566e8a0faf405c0df361.jpg
    The aluminum TRD CAI covers sell for $150 shipped and come with new ss hardware.

    I am new to this web site, so I have not researched what the popular CAI being used on the Tundras.

    Those are sweet! Assuming these would fit on the 3rd gen Tundra as well? Or are you just teasing us Tundra owners with Tacoma products? :rofl:

    Finally got it installed the other day. Looks awesome. Thank you @Coupe for a great product.
    The aluminum is very rigid and holds the battery firmly in place. This battery isn't going to move at all.
    Powder coating is well done and will keep this piece lasting a long time.
    I chose the non painted TRD so i could keep to my black and grey theme. Being machined aluminum it wont rust and gives me the option in the future to fill in with whatever color i want.
    Highly recommend this product.

    I am working on an adjustable model that will confirm to different battery widths.

    I should have some pics up shortly after some test fitting.

    These are the prototype sketches.

    Completed the install of the new bracket. It fitns nice and tight with the skinny width of the battery and the handle on one side. Definately not moving now. Great design.
    Need to trim the jhooks down a bit. Dimensions provided to coupe so when others order it will be the right length.

    Just realized I put it in backwards from where I had it before.

    Price of the new adjustable model is $85 shipped.

    I made only a few of these. I want to judge the interest in these before making a large run.

    I also have a few fixed versions. These are $75 shipped.


    These are fixed models.
