I just put two Trojan group 31's in a 2015 23D. Tight fit and had to make up two new connector leads but it fits. I did add some weather-stripping to the box lid to prevent rubbing and further rusting.

I don't think this was mentioned yet on this thread. I have been told AGM batteries can be installed in any position, for example on the side,

Having some trouble adding my picture buts it under member 111 " 23D battery" in the photo area. Two 31 AGM's will fit in factory box. Uses every bit of the box without having to raise the lid.

I looked at your pic, how did you shoe horn those in? what model are they specifically?

Thanks.

They are Trojan's group 31 AGM. The front battery box lip where the lid mounts needs to be tweaked to allow the second battery in. Just bend it back, add a bit of grey paint with new rivets for the lid and your good to go. I still need to add a tie strap. They can't go fore and aft but could slide sideways. Batteries are padded with 3/8 rubber on the bottom and sides too.

Another option would be to cut the front lip but really no need, it's mild steel and quite malleable.

I added a 1/4" rubber strip to the lid since it was already wearing into the box and causing some rust.

Modern, I've read your post and OSTREAMs as well. How is the cover attached so you have access to the batteries?

Agm

The custom lid I designed and built features holes in lip which allows factory threaded rods to secure lid with wing bolts.

BTW, I'm currently replacing my Lifelines GPL-4C's after 6 years years of service. Work great!

I didnt use threaded rods, i just drilled a hole in either side ofthe case and the stainless cover and used some nice stainless wingnut + stainless thumbscrew (with allen key) - worked great.

Thanks for the clarification. I may be going the aluminum channel route as the quotes I received are more than I wanted to spend on a cover. well over $100
