    Hey folks -

    My company owns 4 2105 Tundras and have 3 more on the way. We'll be adding a few extras to upfit them for the work they do. Our customer has asked for the 3 new ones to have a dual battery setup in addition to a few other things. (It should be noted that the other 4 already have dual battery setups but the customer's upfitting shop did custom installs).

    Looking for a kit that I don't have to piece together that's good quality. Haven't dealt with purchasing or installing one before so wanted to get some opinions from you all.

    And for eye candy, one of our current 4 Tundras.AUV Truck.jpg

    Did you ever figure this out or find a better place to mount a 2nd battery?

    None, yet....
    Someone needs to seriously make a tray for a second battery in the engine bay for these trucks. Who has a 3D printer?

    The only spot in the engine bay would be where the windshield wiper and power steering fluid containers are.. so a kit would need to relocate those, too.

    If it were me I would have a box added under the bed near the rear axle clear of obstruction. My GMC had a 2ndary battery box mount under the hood. I wish Toyota did this.

    Yea, that's what I'd prefer to do, too, since it helps -- albeit very slightly -- keep the center of gravity low(er) but I'd need it to be waterproof.
