I plan on doing something with mine since I have the engine and everything out. I'll take a bunch of pictures and make something if no one chimes in.

Cant you just fabricate something to encapsulate the existing box? Or do you have to move it due to mods or upgrades? They sell small "pelican" cases (w/ water/air tight lids), for carrying volt meters, electronic parts, etc. I'm thinking buying the size you need, cutting base out as needed, mount and insulate, re-attach case lid to encapsulate the box, seal it and drive through a monsoon and still dry!

i just did mine.... i will get the few pics of it up that i took when i get a chance. I kept on trying to remember to get pics of the harness while it was out of the car, but i kept forgetting until i got it all back in the car. I removed all the unneeded wires that was in the harness and ended up getting rid of a few plugs up top also, just had to repin a couple connectors.

After I got them down there, I didn't mind them being there. If you aren't going to make a cover for that spot, I don't like it.

Just personal opinion.

LOL, Randy. Good to see you still around here man. Good lord that engine bay look killer now, but I think your relocation is above what he is wanting to do, LOL. I'm thinking he just wants to move it down without cutting & extending the harness.

relocated mine behind the glove box, I'll see If I can dig up some pics tonight, not pretty, but it's behind the dash so you don't see it anyway. Went through a hell of a lot of time and wire
