Dual battery.
    In that case, he needs to plug into a battery tender while it sits. I have optima batteries on a dual system and leave the back one plugged in and the system keeps both charged. I use an optima charger.
    If you only have one battery, any smart charger will work.

    Edit- sorry, you are talking to Mike and I am chiming in.

    Thank you Mike

    I have the same one. Haven't had to use it but after after 2 years the battery still holds a charge. I too it off every 3 or 4 months just in case.

    mini pocket starters are a dime a dozen. Just get the highest capacity u can get. We have an off brand one for the race cars and that works fine.

    We take lots of add on stuff out because of stuff like this.
    Amps wired directly.
    Starters that are tapped into places they shouldn’t.
    Tuff to trace.

    I know what ya mean

    :wave: I'm back ... great time.
    Check :thumbsup:

    hmmm...got stuck twice on the way in. Dug out once, got winched out once. Definitely getting Stitch a small bumper and winch. Did not get stuck coming out.
    First time off road in snow ... I learned 4Lo + ATRAC + 3rd gear works well for me.

    I've always read about the ABS issue and snow/ice...but it's never been a huge issue for me on either of my Tacomas. :notsure:
    EDIT: I think maybe the MT makes it not as much of an issue.
