    Which battery should I go with?

    Ok I'm looking for a good 1,000+ cranking amps and 100+ah battery. I've been looking at SHURiKEN SK-BT35, Kinetik HC800 (KHC800), and the XS Power XP950. Has anyone had experience with any of these or have any suggestions?

    2 XS Power D3400s (hood and in the back) should be a decent start.

    Most important thing to upgrade in your Tacoma is the alternator, the stock 80(?) Amp will fry quickly if you start adding batteries.

    Look up the GM CS144/130 Alt conversion, it is a very cheap way to gain a lot of power.
