    I have read the numerous dual battery threads, so I think that I am up to speed on the wiring, etc.

    One thing not really covered - Anyone made their own Tray?

    Thinking of moving the coolant overflow back or somewhere. I don't need the stock jack and stuff b/c it won't work with the 35's anyway.

    I am going to fab a tray to hold dual batteries on the passenger side where the current battery is. Has anyone done this? Any drawabacks? Any pics or suggestions?

    Thought about the drivers side tray, but it looks like a great place to put in a storage box or a couple of ammo boxes for tools and junk that is not heat sensitive. Never thought about "stacking" the batteries.


    If anyone has done this, post up some details/pics.

    Move the overflow tank to the core support and build a battery tray where the overflow used to be. That way the battery wires can be as short as possible and away from the heat of the radiator
