    As @Lawfarin said, it is best to keep the grounds as short as practicable. The wire has resistance, that eats up voltage before it gets too what it's being used for. Running both wires doubles that resistance. Make sure the connection at the body/ frame etc. Is clean metal and you should be good to go. Up size the battery grounds as well and your golden. :thumbsup:
