For relocation in the trunk in a ragtop. Do I need a poly box or can I fab my own bracket? I will be using an external on/off switch. Also the spare tire is mounted on the pass side, so is there an ideal battery and spare placement for traction? I have absolutely NO traction (2.3 60') so I had better get to work and do things properly.

You can fab your own brackets, but you need to seal off the passenger compartment from the trunk. Otherwise you'll need a box that is vented to the outside for the battery. Also you'll need a min of two 3/8" dia bolts (not j-bolts) holding the battery to the trunk floor. Just seal off the rear seat and package tray with aluminum and bolt the battery down om the passenger side.
