The Interstate MT7 is available in group sizes 34, 65, and 78. Our ’04 4Runner uses a 34R battery. It’s a Group 34 size, but the battery pole positions are reversed. If we turned the battery around in the tray, the cables would physically reach, but they’d be in the wrong positions. Never connect battery cables to the wrong poles. You’ll fry your electrical system and possibly cause a fire. Since the MT7 isn’t available as a 34R, the solution here is to mount the battery as shown and get longer cables.
