Re: Who is running a big single battery?

I think you can get away with it if it dont get cold in your as to where you have to really use the glow plugs.

That or it would have to be one hell of a battery.

Anyone have the starting specs for our trucks.

What is the minimum CCA and all that good stuff. That is what you need to look at if you want to get a nice single.

Re: Who is running a big single battery?

I've ran a single since beginning of spring and the truck still starts in less then 2 seconds now and it's been in the 40's lately here.

I have a single gold top duralast, that is 2 years old.

Re: Who is running a big single battery?

They sell some very powerful single battery's at 18 wheeler parts counters. I'd consider using one of those.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Re: Who is running a big single battery?

It's just the biggest battery from Wally World that I could fit... Can't remember the specs. But it's no big deal. I guess if it got super cold, it wouldn't be as great, but I have no problem with it at all. Even after a few hours of playing the radio.
