Default Battery Tray Replacement

Well, before I get to my question, a little background on why I've even replaced my battery tray.

Well, I have car that needed a jump, so I was going to use my truck. When I connected everything, I only looked at the cap on the cable attached to the battery that said + and not the battery itself. Seems that when the dealership, either initially or from one of my oil changes, put the cap on the wrong post and I didn't even notice. Well, not until the jumper cables melted and caught on fire, causing my battery to over heat and blow. Needless to say a new battery and battery tray were required.

Ok, now to my question. I was able to replace the tray, took about two hours, as there are many connections from tray to the truck and wires to the tray and even a fun ECU to get around. I made all of the connections with the new tray, but when I bought the tray at the dealership, only place I could get as the truck is too new to find one in a salvage yard, the dealer sold me a Screw - Hex Flang and a Nut- U Multi thread. These where not on the original tray, and he didn't tell me where they go. Do any of you happen to know where this new screw and nut go?

Thanks,

Frank

hmmmm I bought a battery tray from a mopar site (sitting in the back seat right now) and it didnt come with any replacement hardware but when I did take mine apart I dont remember seeing a part like that. I would think as long as you got the main anchor bolts in you should be fine.

I have a side question for ya if you dont mind. How exactly did you get the tray out? haha I removed all the hardware on mine but there was something to the right of the battery blocking me from removing it. I believe they were brake lines or something and if I dont know what it is, I dont mess with it. Metal type pipes that I was afraid of bending if I pulled too hard. Any tips? Thanks.

The part you are talking about is the ABS I believe, I was able to get it out without taking that apart. I did a lot of twisting and moving, but if you remove the plastic wheel well liner, it should be much easier than how I did it.
