The battery tray on the right front, as seated in the truck, came stock on the chevy trucks, it's where mine is located. The left tray was for the dual battery setup on the chevy's, but seemed to come stock in most if not all of the GMC trucks, also the alternator is located on top of the engine on the GMC's vs located to the right, within a foot of the stock airbox. Little differences.

 

I just picked up the left hand battery tray yesterday at the junk yard, it was $5.

I would also head to the junkyard for this one...you'll find everything you need a probably only cost you $10 - $15 if I had to guess.

 

When you go dual batteries, the big item to remember is that they must be the same battery.

I REALLY have been wanting to do the dual battery setup in mine. I've got the tray for the duals, as I took out the little tool box thing that was there, and put in the tray that came with the truck. 

 

Maybe I missed it, but do you have part numbers or a link to the isolator and battery cutoff you guys are using? I want to get two little volt gauges and put in my Overhead console, or a single gauge that can read both? Not sure if they have a digital one that can read both at the same time.

This is the Isolator / Relay I use - https://www.bluesea....l_-_12V_DC_500A

For gauges, I use two independent Auto Meter voltage gauges....however, there may be a gauge specific for duals if you only have space for one.

 

Also, send PMA4x4 a PM - http://www.gmc4x4.com/forum/85-pma4x4/ --- he has some really nice equipment for duals, gauges, etc and could probably help you out.

There are a few aircraft gauge builders who can make any type of gauge dual, triple, quad etc......

 

That marine spec iso/relay setup is nice.
