    Hi I have a 2000 2500 Chevy old body style with a 5.7 . trying to put in a second battery, but dealer won't help me with part #s for the battery cables. I want to use factory cables and battery tray parts. Wondering if anyone has the part #s or a VIN for a 2000 5.7 that came with factory dual batteries. thanks

    sounds like you need a new dealer. I would go in and order the parts as if you already had them and were just replacing them. How can they say no if you say " I'd like a battery tray and cables for a 00 GM truck with dual batteries, thank you very much." I got one for a 79 half ton that way from the dealer. If they say its not available order them for a diesel, my 97 came with dual batteries and I guarantee you my battery trays would fit your truck if its 2000 or older.

    I tried to do that but the parts guy said that without a valid VIN he would have to search through 5 pages of cables to try to find the right ones. I had no problem getting the tray and hold down, I 'm just trying to get the cables sorted out.
