    Anybody put in a second battery box? My XLT has plenty of room for it.

    Just wondering, after adding double bilge pumps, a second battery would give peace of mind.

    If you aren't worried about the extra weight and could put a switch to swap from battery 1 to battery 2 from time to time for charging and emergency use. It sounds like a pretty good idea I've seen the time when I wished I had a hot battery as I floated father from shore lol.

    That was pretty much the plan.

    We did it a few years back on GPRs... added a switch as mentioned above and it worked fine

    WFO,

    I was planning on just cutting a box out of an old hull and using epoxy to hold in place right behind the OE one? How did you guys do it?

    I was going to do the same, although I am a bit concerned about the extra weight making it a bit heavy on one side. I think that the epoxy will work, but they sell the new battery box holder costs like 12 bucks I think. I was going to get one new one and do it exactly how you mentioned.

    I will as well if I decide to go through with it. I was going to do it as a support for a sound system. But we will see if I end up needing it or not.
