    Has anyone installed or seen dual batteries installed under the hood on the new third gen Ram trucks. I am interested in this type of setup without having to install a 2nd batt. in the pass. compartment or in the bed.:help:

    2nd batt

    the diesel models have 1 on each side.You should be able to order the batt tray from your local dodge steeler (dealer) for a diesel model and the batt cables to.

    cannot be done...

    the size of the Hemi does not allow room for a second battery under the hood. best place to mount is going to be under the bed in front of the rear tires behind the cab in a water proof box of some sort.

    I hadn't thought of mounting a 2nd battery there. I just installed some running boards on my truck and noticed all of the open space while under my truck.:) I know what I will be doing next weekend, mounting up a second battery next to the rear wheelwell.
