Dual Batteries Installed - Optimas and Recovery Switch

This was a pretty big project to tackle. After researching for days on everyone's idea of the best dual battery setup, I took numerous ideas and tied them all into one. Quick and easy disconnects so I can plug my Ready Welder II in minutes isolating the electrical system. This setup monitors the oil pressure switch that i used which if the vehicle is running and has oil pressure then both batteries are being charged and used. Once you shut off the vehicle and oil pressure drops below 5psi then batteries are isolated. There is also a recovery switch in the vehicle to allow jump starting from the backup battery if the main battery is run down.

Created a bracket to replace the stock relay bracket and to allow for connection mounting.
Also had to move the coil to a different location so another bracket was made.
I made two custom battery trays as well to fit both locations.


Once everything was installed here is the finished look:

I like your dual battery setup. It's good to know you can fit another battery there; I might be moving my main one there to assist in extreme fender chopping.

I'm working on a '95 Grand Cherokee build..I got it without a fuel tank (stock 23 gallon) & fuel pump/sending-unit. What capacity is the fuel cell..33 gallon? What vendors?

Built My Front Bumper

Needed a bumper to finish up the exocage. Still have to build my front fenders, but you get it.

Used 1/4" for everything since this is non-removable.
