Love the box Installed on my 172L w/337 Great fit, depth an inch less than factory box so mag clearance is better Removal of old rivets hidden behind box is a breeze with a sharp wood chisel, backside firewall access for top is easy, used one old rivet hole & plugged other holes with rivets used type A #10 on bottom two Would buy & install again Chris

Well made battery box. But expensive! Hence only three stars. However, it was the only certified box I could find for the SBS J16 battery. A non-certified box goes for 1/10th the price.
