i went with two relays (big fuses basically) and a battery isolator from stinger. i also got the battery tray from gm, notice that they do NOT make a hood brace for it with the tray. i used 0 gauge wire for all of my runs, until the distribution block to my amps. then it is 2 gauge.

Do you have a link to the isolator you used? And how much was the battery tray? I think you can get them from ckresto for $30. I took the hood braces off my truck already. It didn't seem to hurt anything. My buddy's hd doesn't have them from the factory and he has the second battery there also.

So basically in my case with 1/0 I would run 1/0 to the isolator and then 1/o to the second battery from the isolator, and let the factory wiring charge the orignal battery?
