Make sure you use the largest welding cable or better yet a UL listed battery cable you can afford. You are looking for cables the size of your thumb. The idea here is to keep the voltage drop under load to as low a value as you can. Even 1 volt of drop will cause higher starter currents also remember low voltage KILLS the FICM in these trucks.

Frame mounted battery box

For the frame mounted AUX battery on the V10 and 6.0l E20/E350 here is a parts list (frame should already have the holes in it for the box)
All these are factory part numbers (got them from partsguyed.com)

I thought of doing that when i redid my electrical, but I decided against it.
I would rather relocate the accessories I wanted than relocate the batteries.

These trucks draw some serious amperage at cold start with GP's on and starter going. I would be concerned with voltage loss as stated above.

There is someone here who went to two optima red tops and relocated both to one side IIRC.....

I was thinking of adding a 3rd battery to mine actually. use it for my HAM radio gear and such, with an ignition switched solaniod to disconnect it when the ignition was off (had a similar setup on my Jeep when I owned it)
would likely order a 00 cable for it when ordering my 00 battery cables. Just to avoid voltage loss
