Just throw some sandbags back there if you want the extra weight.. Batteries aren't heavy enough to have any effect

plus they would slide around like crazy. after the time and money spent on some sort of hold down method along with the extra battery cable lenght, when you do the math, you will end up using the red pen.

A buddy bought a Pelican case which he bred to the bed and put his batteries inside.

I kno this is teh 6.0 section, but i hav a 2001 s10 that i relocated teh battery under teh bed, in front of rear passenger tire. I needed more room to tuck 22s. I used 20ft of 4awg battery cable, 10ft red, 10ft black. Used angle iron teh make teh tray and teh hold down. You can also see disk brakes from a LS1 Camaro, and a K3 air chime.

in theory, you could put a truck tool box in the bed, a couple of battery boxes in the tool box, and run your cables to the box. but then you gotta drill holes in the bed of the truck and the tool box. it would really be more trouble than its worth unless youre going with twins and need the space under the hood.

Sandbags would just add more weight and slow me down. I have to have battery's but there weight dose t have to be over the front tires it can be the rear

If you really want the best results, put your batteries as far BEHIND the axle centerline as possible. Putting the battery in the trunk of your hot rod is for better weight transfer and most times, it just happens to be behind the axle. Get a pair of those gel filled Ultima batteries, they can be mounted up side down if need be.
