    Just ordered a battcap 2000, got a few more questions



    I plan to be running a DDZ1a by the end of this summer. And as of right now I think I will get a 200-250 amp alternator. I've got 0 gauge running to the back. Got the big 3 done in 0 gauge as well. So my biggest concern right now is how to feed an amp of that size. I need an upfront battery (I've heard I don't-please express opinions). I'm wondering just what other batteries I need, what size/brand of h/o alt I need, and if my wiring is ok.

    you'll need 4 runs of 1/0 and about 3 Batcap 2000's...one to replace main and two trunks...Alt should be fine...

    if you can fit one a group 31

    you will be ok with 1 good alt.
    matt (mechman) has some nice deals for dual alt kits though depending on what you have

    you could do 2 runs
    4 would allow that much more power to be sent to the rear.

    Once again I'm still not sure what a group 31 batt is. Link maybe?

    Ok gotcha.



    As far as alts go, what would I get if I got 2? like two 200 amp?

    Deka Intimidator, or any of those used would be a good bet

    Thanks.

    Ok for 4 runs of 0 gauge, would it be best to run it under the truck with pvc pipe?
