see pics in c-fish's document for an identical clone photo of what's under my hood with regards to battery install =)

Battery + the little lead adapter deals = wiring fits like a charm. hangs off the edge of the battery tray on the side towards the engine maybe 1/4-1/2in, but definitely isn't going anywhere.

The PM-2 is $164.99. $55 off regular price

I was thinking about getting 2 with one being primary and the other as the secondary battery. Thoughts?

Looks to be rated a bit higher in the CCA department than the OEM battery, and being AGM construction and made by Odyssey, I'd certainly call it a good battery choice =)

Better specs than the P-5 I used to run even:

Only snag with the PM-2 is the terminals are backwards. Might be a PITA to wire it up in the primary position. Secondary wouldn't be a problem though.

Didn't see the terminals reversed. Thanks. I bought one battery today.

The terminal are reversed on my P2, but it is an easy fix. Add a longer ground cable and you can get the extra length you need out of the positive cable.

How well would this battery and an Everlast Yellow top work with a dual battery kit?

You can add me to the PM-1 havers list now. Just went in this am and got one to replace my failing yellow top.

Can anyone help me find a Battery Tray for a size 65A battery? I'm ready to do the Dual Battery thing.
Recommendations on Dual Battery Kit?

What is a 65A battery? Is that amp hours? Is that the battery group?
Most pre-made trays go by battery group size - 24,27,34,31 etc.
Buy a AGM marine battery as they are made to run down then be charged back up. You should be looking at a group 34 as it will fit in the engine bay without having to relocate things to make room. Look for one that has most reserve capacity so all of you added electronics can run off it.
The National Luna kit is very simple to install, yes there may be less expensive dual battery setups out there but you get what you pay for.

IT's group 65A. I have a spare battery out of my F250 that is still OK (From the dual battery set up in that) and it's bigger than your typical AGM optima. It' is only a temporary fix since I'm planning on buying a marine battery in the future. Just can't afford all of it right away.

Will be going with the National Luna system, as soon as Finn and I work out the details.

THis puppy has 600 CCA.

It says NASCAR on it, so it has to be good......or so hopes some pinhead on Exide's marketing team.

LOL - Mine doesn't say Nascar, but it does have dirt on it.
