    What are the benefits of a big single battery compared to two smaller ones? Certainly there is less EAF points because one is less than two

    the biggest benefit can be realized if the two batteries are actually isolated from each other. Then one becomes a backup battery or the two can be utilized separately as one for starting and standard vehicle duties and the other for accessories like winching and lighting, as an example.
    Simply wiring two batteries together will work if you want to keep it simple and this will provide a huge reserve of power but you have to remember that when both are depleted, there is no backup.
    Also, this method almost requires that both batteries be identical or one will overcharge or possibly parasite off the other.

    Yeah I can slap a piece of steel in 30mins with holes for tie down mounts but it will look like shit. The time involved to design one that is particle and look good your better off buying one bolting it in and calling it a day.

    I went with single battery due to the fact i would have to run doubles in the stock location because i have the stupid abs pump on the passenger side.....

    Yes i have a TRD OR with the abs pump on the passenger side..... one of the simplest (electrical wise) TRD OR

    That looks to be a poorly executed long island to me.

    Well I mixed the layers because the funky glass was threatening to ice slide all over me. So it did originally have a better presentation.

    Edit.. and it is red Robin... So there's that.

    This would have cleared up any confusion on the original posting.

    The taco burger was pretty good. Endless steak fries could've used a bit more flavor.

    Big thanks to Brian @thefatkid for his work installing 4.88's in my truck! I've been doing the drive easy thing and I can say the regear is a big improvement over the oem 3.90's. I feel very fortunate and lucky to have had Brian extend his professional work to weekend work and helping me out. Top notch work by a top notch person! :thumbsup:

    You're welcome, Hope they work out well for you. I was thinking that I should have done a learned memory reset on your transmission after the re-gear. I didn't because I was not sure what shifting point/feel tuning did to that. If you want to try it at the gear oil change, let me know.

    Anyone have a reliable and reputable electrician they can recommend in the Superior area? So far I can't seem to find one up here that will call back to discuss my needs, I guess business is good :rolleyes:

    Residential? Not sure if he gets that far west, but I had 2 good experiences with Sean Lewis, owner of Lewis Electric in Thornton, 303-912-8408. He upgraded our service panel when we did a furnace and AC replacement last spring. He also ran some new 15A circuits as a separate job. On time, on budget, very tidy work.
