97 Bounder Battery Access??

I hope someone has a better way to replace batteries and/or disconnect them than reaching over the hood! Please tell me there is a way to pull the grill off this girl.

They are a pain, if I would have kept the Bounder, I would have put the gill on hinges. Our bounder you had to lift them out, no room for anything else.

Yes the hinge would be a good idea. I took out 4 bolts last night hoping that was all that was holding the grill in place. Then I noticed more screws and trim above the heavy grill so I gave up.

If you are keeping it, it might be worth the effort. It will require some mods to the grill and trim. I traded mine in on a Kountry Star instead .
