Two batteries, huring air flow..ideas?

Good afternoon all,
I recently purchased a 2000 F250. It came with a lift gate, and the 2nd battery is installed in the Air Box area. I am guessing this is not good, as it hinders airflow. I'm looking to put in a DP chip, and a 4 inch exhaust, but don't want to until I know if this is a huge issue or not. Anyone else out there use a lift gate, or have the 2nd battery anywhere else?
Thanks for your input.

I've got good news for you: you don't have a problem. Almost every diesel truck made in the past decade has two batteries.

Excellent to know, thank you. I was just afraid I was losing air flow from the battery being in the box.
Thanks again. You have a great looking truck by the way!

That's Ford's OEM position of that battery.
Now you COULD relocate both batteries to the pass frame rail, but that's a pain and there's no need unless you're doing twin turbo set ups.

But it's so much cleaner without the battery under the hood.

That does look nice, moving the battery sounds like more than I have time for right now though. Maybe one day as I continue learning the truck.
Thanks for all the info guys.
