    look into alternators. not batteries. i have a red top optima in my taco. 2 35w hids. cb are my only power drainers. old rig had 4 100w kc, 2 55w hellas, 2 55w backup lights, 2 55w rock lights, warn winch, cb, 1000w stereo, had a red top in it. but was pulling more amps than the alternator could pump out. so i put a powermaster on it

    +1 you ned to worry about your alternator not your battery....

    Think of you battery as a bucket. Every time you hook something up yo poke a hole in the bucket. The question is, can my alternator keep the bucket full with all these holes in it?
