    If you guys try the Sears Platinum battery (pricey at $180) you may find --as I have-- you can
    get by with ONE battery

    dont get me wrong,.. I was a two battery guy for years. But this works great

    Its not all in the batteries. A good alt is just as important.

    crash935 is right. it not how many batteries you have in your truck, it about what powers the truck and the batteries.
