If you have degoated then you probably don't need to relocate the R/R since you've removed the heat source that caused the problems in the first place.

And if you are still running the lead acid battery and haven't replaced it with a MF battery you still might want to move the R/R from under the battery box away from any spilled or leaking acid... Or at least I did mine...

As mentioned it's mounted under the battery box from the factory. Here's a couple pics of places folks move it to, the first pic is the most popular choice because it's close enough to the stock location that the wiring harness plug will still reach to it.

Somebody around here (don't remember who) sells a relocation bracket, some people just come up with their own. I used simple strip steel when I moved mine, drilled some holes in it, painted, and mounted to the peg bracket bolts.

If you browse through the member gallery photo's, you'll see alot of different options for mounting hardware. Most just do their own thing with it.

Here's a side mount shot, (most popular) and somebody who took the time to do a front mount-

Good catch on the battery, yes, get a MF battery. No more acid overflow to worry about and it will hold the charge longer.

bulldog485 sells a relo bracket kit and I think you can even ask him to powder coat it, too.
