    Is anyone running a single battery ie like a deep cycle marine battery or big amg? Doing this instead of a due battery set up? I would like to see pics of any if anyone has some.

    Just curious cause I would like to put a bigger battery in my Tacoma but I don't really have a need for a secondary one. I will prob never run a fridge or anythin that would require a duel. Just would be nice to run a couple aux led lights off of the roof rack I'm getting at night went camping.

    Thanks appreciate any help.

    Your the man
    coby,

    Short answer - YES full sized 31M-

    Explanation-

    You can stick a size 31M in there. Look at my build and the dual battery setup thread. I had the single 31M in there. It fit fine and I spent the money for a longer battery hold downs. 2 dollars. Then drilled out the old one that is welded to the hold down to make a hole for the new LONGER hooks. It will hang over your battery tray, or you can remove it. I have the sealed batterys so the 'pan' is almost useless.

    At that point I was deciding IF* a single would fit my power needs. I did the math and it really would have been close. Was not willing to risk it. SO I started the cutting and relocation process./ Dropped the second one in it and am using hose clamps as a temp fix til I get a welder.

    Would like it if they focused more on the current stuff instead of flashing back all the time. For that matter, put up all the back episodes.

    They said early on they were re-working the seasons into this one, thats why you cant find them online anymore. I thought the episode was good, been through all those places they saw myself years ago. Laird is a must stop on the alcan.

    I know, I liked going back and watching the snow episodes getting pumped for winter wheeling season. Now I just look outside though.
