I found a discussion of installing a Second Battery in New Body Style (GM T1XX) trucks like our Trail Boss trucks.


They don't seem to have a good solution, IMHO, although the issue seems purely locating a battery. Wiring it up is apparently trivial. I was looking under the hood of mine today (Had it One Whole Week now!) and there is easily room on the passenger side for an Odyssey AGM like we use in light planes. And, well, yes many motorcycle brands.

Attached is an image of one of my Odyssey PC680 batteries lowered down in to the space. Seems like a bracket to secure it would not be difficult. And here is a link of the specs and to purchase a battery like this:


I looked for this after watching a few ... okay, a bunch ... of utoob videos of Trail Boss trucks driving offroad. Some were not able to deflate their tires in one video, because they forgot to bring the air compressor to re-inflate for the drive home. And if you're going to bring an air compressor capable of re-inflating our tires ... you're going to need a power station (Goal Zero, etc.). Or a second battery and a pretty hefty Inverter.
