    I think on 93+ it's pretty easy, get the 91-2 Fj80 battery tray and mount it on the oposite side.

    Or you might look at putting 2 batts in the stock tray, the Odyessys might work well.

    heres a good place to start

    It is important to note that the 3FE tray does not just "drop in", it will need to be trimmed to fit around the fan shroud. Not a big deal, but be prepared to cut. As it is fiberglass, it is important to wear the appropriate protective clothing and eye protection.
