    Iv been wanting to put another battery in my truck for some time now but dont have any ideas for where to put it or how to do it. The only place i have room for another battery is in my tool box (thats after i take everything out that i want in there). Anyone have any ideas? the engine compartment is set up the same as an f-150 bcuz its essentially an an f-150 with f-250 suspention

    replace the stock airbox and assembly with a custom one... maybe you could put the battery on the "tray" the air box sits on.... idk, give it a try!!

    the air intake is essentially just a big tube with a filter in it that takes up alot of room then goes into the fender.. no tray or anything

    Try the search function on the line at the top of the page.
    Search : Charging, Duel batteries, Low power etc. There is hours and hours of reading from past posts. Ambulance up fitters place the extra batteries on the right frame rail behind the "Cab area".
