if you need to do extended winching you may need the reserve of dual batteries. Two batteries will give you more time winching then one battery. No alternator can keep up with the draw of a loaded winch that is why two batteries are better. I have a total of 3 batteries in my truck 2 in the bed. Before I added the second alternator i use a isolator from napa to charge both batteries and keep one from drawing the other down. it workd like a diode. The solinoid would keep the batteries isolated till you need them. While the isolator would allow both to be charged. Best part of the solinoid is if you left your light on you flip the switch to activate the solinoid and can "jump" your self. That is how i have my back batteries X-tied with my front. while normally they are two separate electrical systems.

dude sorry Tom, we must have been typing at the same time, yeah thats a cool setup thats what I want. I don't have a cold air intake so I can't really mount mine where the air box is.

Where else could we mount it ? I guess the bed is fine

I'm sure we can find a spot for the battery. My intake is nothing more than an adapter that bolts to the MAF that allows the K&N to hook up. I think I paid $9 for the MAF adapter. The battery can always be mounted in the back it'll just cost a little more for the cable.

I am thinking about mounting my winch(when I get) on a reciever carrier and running cable to the back so I can winch from the rear if I have to. So I am running cables to the rear anyway.
