Default 2004 Z71 Tahoe Build

So This isnt the actual start of my build, that starts in a few days. Today I got bored and started tossing around ideas of how to mount my batteries. I mentioned in my introduction thread that I had 6 Optima Red Tops but the car gods came through for me and I have 8 now instead.
Let me know what you guys think about the arangement of the batteries. Any ideas, suggestions will be great, thanks.


Just a couple Red Tops, lol.

5 across the back.

3 Between the rear Captains.

Another view.

7 side by side across the back, cant figure out where to put the 8th one, lol.

Just let me know what you guys think. Sorry about the picture quality, gotta love Droid Smartphones. Like I said, the actual build will start in a few days and I start posting the pics. Thanks.

Red Tops were readilly available for my build for extremely dirt cheap. Plus for now I havent upgraded my alt system because I leave for over seas again in Feb, so minus the subs and batteries, majority of this current build is temporary.
Subs are Two 18in AQ HDC3.0 Dual2 Copper Coils and Amps are Two MBQuart Discus 2000.1

Like I said its kinda just temporary to get my Bass Fix before I deploy again and once I get back, the real build will kick off.

My 05 escalade does. You should have a tray in there below the air filter box. If not it would be easy to get one or to make one.

As for arrangement I like the seven lined up and then put the second one under the hood. Is the one under the hood a stock batt?

No, I already have a Red Top under the hood. I looked last night for this mysterious sec batt tray and Im sure mine doesnt have it. I could fab up a tray and mount it by the Radiator Overflow but it would be really tight and take some time to get it just right.

Also for other Tahoe owners, am I the only one who had like a 18-16ga wire from the distro block to the alt? That thing was tiny and would get pretty warm so I replaced it with a 4ga and ran another jump from the Alt to the top of the battery. Heres a couple pics...



Yeah I just thought it was dumb of who ever did that. Thats why I replaced it and also ran a Second Run Directly to the battery.

U don't need to go through that at all. I just bypassed it and went straight from alt to battery.

Also you could mount that eighth red top on the side on the passenger side at the back of the engine compartment. Seen that done before and might do it myself.

Well guys I finnally got it done..well 99.3 % done lol. I will say up front that a decent amount of the pictures arent great quality. I left for my trip and forgot my camera so I had to use my Android Phone Camera.

It will have a couple small breaks in the photos where I was so busy I forgot to take more pictures but Ill do my best to explain the picture.

Photos to follow in the next couple hours, uploading them to photobucket right now.
