    How hard is it too put a 2nd battery in a 1996 ram 2500. And how much is it to do.

    You can get a battery tray for the right fender well from your Dodge dealer that will fit right in without drilling a single hole. There provisions on the tray to mount and thing you may have to move for the tray to fit.
    It is a vary easy install.

    lol, sur looks like it..... I get the batteries with top and side posts on them.
    It makes it easer to hook up every thing.

    On that one, the top Neg is going to a ground, the side Neg & Pos are going directly to the other battery
