    front to rear neg. wire runs ????'s

    so im gonna have 3 positive runs from front bat to rear bats. is it worth it to have 3 neg. runs from front to rear, or should i just ground the bats in the rear to the frame?

    Id ground them at the frame at the rear/where ever they sit,,seems like a waste of money to run grounds as well..Pos is understood/taken

    If your grounding points are good, then you shouldn't have a problem with frame. Still do 3 neg runs from rear batts or amps or whatever to frame, and then 3 from frame to front battery or alt or wherever you are going. Though me personally, I'd do dedicated runs if you have the space and cash. Remember to fuse those as well. It's also possible to do a combination of the two, maybe 1 or 2 runs and then ground to frame. Just remember to have the same capacity at the termination points like I explained above.

    In a truck, I'd try the frame first. I had to run a neg for my car, though.
