anyone know what this area is under the hood?


Recommended Posts

2015 Sierra 5.3, it looks like this empty spot is where the battery was supposed to go...

Front drivers side, by the windshield washer fill, what's this empty space?

Second battery? Makes sense, thats exactly what it looks to fit...

 

Hmmm, wondering what I can utilize this spot for...

That's where I see just about everybody mount their catch can, somewhere in that space. When I get a catch can that's where I'm going to put it. Even my 98 Silverado had the second battery tray so it doesn't surprise me that my '14 has it and seems like all '14s have it where as my 98 not all GMT400s had it. I think others had some kind of storage box or something.

Question: is it that the underhood areas are the same for 1500's and 2500+'s and that spot is for a dual battery used by the diesel? Or is the 1500 different?

Its for a 2nd battery. GMT-900s had the spot too. I assume its for upfitters.

 

I like it. I used it to mount a box to put my relays in.

 

Nothin wrong with havin a free spot!

 

I suppose in 20 years when the battery tray on the other side is rusted out you can use this one. :lol:

In both my Silverado's. I installed a plastic battery box and keep jumper cables in the box. That way, I always have my cables available and they are right under the hood. Works out great.
