with stock alt, im sure a few batts in the back would be fine. pushing about 1600w, look into 2 smaller or 1 bigger XS. 2 9xx or 1 1200. thats ontop of your front battery, dont take that out or anything.

for the price of 2 small batts yer better off with one big batt hc2000 or hc2400. with a stock alt a batt is just a band aid on yer electrical.

i would first spend that batt money on a alt that will pretty much power the 2 amps.

This is not true. The alternator is only ment to charge/maintain. You are better off spending your money on batteries with your set up.

Here is a little artical you should read...

its only gonna work as long as the batt has the reserve. once thats depleted the alt cant keep up with the current draw. then there is just gonna be bad voltage drops.

a 100 amp alt is only gonna do so much with the current draw them amps are gonna use. sure it will work for longer period of time with multi batts. still gonna be in the same boat once the batts are drained.
