    Looking for a Battery Hold down for a 1971 CJ5. The Jeep came with the tray, but I would like to find the top hold down portion

    Not factory but I have this heavy duty one.
    Fits group 27 batteries.

    Right’O you probably can’t even fit a group 27 on the Jeeps with a firewall mounted tray

    Mines not “restoration” but looks and works well. Metal strap bolted to the firewall (self-drilling screws). The other end is doubled over then bent in an "L". the bottom leg of the L is drilled for a bolt that goes into the stock location.

    Walck's sells this nice rubber-coated reproduction of the original hold down bracket:

    Battery Hold Down 12 Volt 1957-1975

    I have one on my V6 CJ-5 using the original battery tray. The bracket fits a Group 24 battery perfectly.

    I think maybe I found one. This one fits group 24.
