    Use a t block. Took me awhile to find them to. I bought stinger ones one eBay.

    cause the whole chassis/frame/uni-body is a ground, and a better ground then a run of 0awg,or 2 for that matter

    That's what I always thought too. Some people would argue this though. I do however have my amps grounded to the batt because they're located right next to each other in the trunk which in that case wouldn't see how grounding to the frame would be beneficial.

    Re: 0 gauge to amp question

    Keep the ground close to the amp. I have three underhood grounds. One to the block, one to the firewall and one more to the frame rail. Then, at the rear of my truck, I have a ground from the frame rail up to the floor pan, and from there, I have the ground going to my kinetik and my amps. Wire brush to bare metal and then bolt it. For all the grounds that I have, no cable is longer than 3ft. Just something that you can NOT overdo!
