I've seen AD trucks with a 12 volt battery mounted in the same position
as on TF trucks, passenger side upper firewall, using the same battey
shelf as a TF truck. It looked like it belonged there. If you can
look at a TF, it should give you some ideas.
I like the 58-59 mount better than the 55-57. The main difference
is that the 55-7 needs a metal retainer around the top of the battery
to hold it down. This retainer comes really close to the posts and
looks like a potential short waiting to happen. The 58-59 mount
uses a top retainer that bolts from front to back of the battery,
well away from the terminals. Both are shown in the Chevy Duty
On the good side, this is a very workable mount. On the bad side,
the battery is staring you in the face when you open the hood.
