    hardest part is going to be making a tray to hold the two Optimas. I might have to bend up some aluminium. No way am I paying $150 for 2lbs of metal :yaoface2:

    Have the solenoid coming for dual batteries and some 4 ga wire for the fuse box. Going to source some 1/0 gauge locally, shipping is killing me right now. Thinking of getting a little fuse box for the tool box to run some lights and stuff back there.
