Thanks I appreciate it.

Well my batteries are sealed agm batteries they don't leak or corrode and they can be mounted in any location and orientation. I am actually about to mount them on each side of my cab where the two small jump seats were. I was in a rush and made a taller false floor that covers them for now until I can get some more 1/0.

If you only wanna add one more battery you could add a second one under the hood if your truck is like mine. Heres a picture of mine with a huge hole on the passenger side its a 4.0 v6.

You could always fab an after market breather box. What all equipment do you plan on running? Usually its extreme cases like mine who need multiple batteries ect lol

I can't stress how important it is to have the big 3. If you look at your system in an anatomical pov your alt is your heart and the big 3 is your veins. Heck you might even cure your dimming with just a proper big 3. If you're looking at upgrading and adding amps down the road you should definitely do the big 3 in 1/0 now and save yourself time down the road.

Far cheaper lol I would look into doing an odyssey battery like mine or other companies that are good for batteries are stinger, batcap, xs, c&d, and shuriken. People tend to stray away from optima now a days when it comes to car audio. There's better options for cheaper now.
