I could just bolt them right since the xs batteries have those hex key bolt on, but I also want it to look cleaner and organized.
Do multiple runs of Power off the alt to the rear.

That terminal would be fine if you fabbed up a cover for the positive terminal. Leaving it exposed like that carries some risk, and not mounting down the battery is just absolutely stupid.

If Your Had A Mount Bracket For The Batt, And An Insulator For The Positive
Side Mounted On The Hood,
You Should Be Ok. You Dont Want Metal From The Car Touching That Post Obviously.


But If Your Running From Alt? You Dont Need That Anyway.

The problem with those terminals would be the risk of shorting out on the hood right?

HG customs made my dual inputs for a great price, I'll be returning to him for sure.

Someone tested unibodies using a Nissan Maxima a few years ago. You don't get a volt drop any worse than a full frame car/truck

Thanks guys!
I appreciate the tips.

To clarify, when I do my big 3, do I still have to upgrade my alternator to front battery?
Since I'm going to be running 2 pos from alternator to the rear.
