Re: Dual Batteries

If I read things right... You're going to use different ages/brands/capacities of batteries.... Not a good idea. Always match your batteries, otherwise you'll be limited by whichever is in the worst shape...

I don't plan on winching, so my dual batts are wired direct.

Yeah for now that was the plan. I wanted to add another Optima. Don't have the $. It would still be a different age though. Didn't think that would matter much especially if I isolated.

Kinda looking like this might be on hold as I divert funds to completing the HID install and Rims/tires.
