    I know im going to be using my outlet in my truck bed ALOT. And so i thought i could get a 2nd battery only for the outlet in the bed and put it in a low profile tool box... any ideas of how to do it?

    for that, you'd have to make sure your alternator can supply 210 amps and you'll need to run a 1 gauge wire or 2 4 gauge wires. Good luck! I'm sure you will do this one day too.

    if you do install it, I'd definitely put some downsized fuses in there so that you won't risk melting any insulation.
