For a 2000W , I'd mount it under the hood as close to the battery as possible. Even if you have to fab brackets for it , you should keep the primary wires as short as you can.

No space under the hood...there's nothing wrong with a 10-15ft run of power wire as long as you use the appropriate wire gauge. Just wanna know where people have mounted it because I saw no space

How well does a 2000W inverter work with the stock electrical system? I wouldn't think it could keep up....
