Rich,
Not sure if you will have enough cable on the right side where they attach to the Magnum. They look kind of short to me.

Looks like he ordered the correct one.
Moryde website states dimensions as WxDxH.

Yes Dan that's what I went by, the Mor/ryde site dimensions. Looks like the compartment itself has plenty of room, will have to use something in between it and the tray to shim it up for the clearance needed to slide over the lip. Also may have to add to a right side cable and the ground cable that bolts to bottom of battery box.

That may be enough Dan or was just thinking if I could find some "C" channel powder coated maybe like 6"- 8"'s to raise it off the bottom and use the space below it for storage of some kind ( battery related ).

Just get some 2"X4" aluminum channel sections, paint them with heavy black paint to prevent galvanic corrosion between dissimilar materials.

That's when we're boys. As an older man I'm not effected by it either as long as I'm inside.

I work out in it during the week. That's enough. lol

Tom, that wire is strapped to the wall. I think taking the straps off will give me enough length.

Joe, you got a great price. $148 on amazon now. Will watch for price drop and snag one.

Rich if you go to the link at Amazon the size that you should need is 21" x 14". Click on that size box and the price drops to 129.94 I think it is. Not sure why but this is the cheapest size. 9 Left !! Don't delay !!

Thanks Joe. I see that. I'm going to recheck dimensions tomorrow and order if it looks like it will work. Pretty excited, but wont be able to install until spring.

That size is probably less due to the shorter length that the rollers need to be would be my guess.

No they don't! We are Amazon Prime members and I LOVE their speedy shipping!

In regards to short battery cables, is there a cable connector in the battery compartment? You could always take out the old cables and install longer ones.

OK. Pulled the trigger. Ordered from Amazon..great price. Talked with Mor/ryde rep this morning and after retaking measurements today feel pretty confident this will fit well. May not even have to shim height.

Joe, when are you planning on installing?
