Dual Battery and OBA Question 2004 Rubicon
I have a 2004 Rubicon 4.0L With Air Conditioning. I have a bad Battery. I want to do some upgrades. I need advice.
What I currently have (Electric Load)
a. 2 Ciebie E code Lenses with Osram 100/80 H4 Hardwired to Batt 12 guage crimp, sodder, and shrinked using the headlight switch as a relay.
b. 2 Pia Driving, rewired all 12 guage crimp, sodder, and shrinked, hardwired to batt using relays and switches. 135Watt H3
c. 2 Pia Fog, rewired all 12 guage crimp, sodder, and shrinked, hardwired to batt using relays and switches. 135Watt H3
a. Warn 9.5TI
a. 2 Big amps, 2 10’s, and a bunch of speakers. Loud as hell. (It all came with the Jeep)
a. One Dead Optima Red Top
The Problem: (I know why)
1. When I drive up into the woods with all of that shit running my battery doesn’t charge.
2. My battery is dead now and I need to buy a new one.
What I would like to do:
1. Alternator upgrade;
a. Load Boss 165A?
b. Mean Green?
a. York Compressor?
i. With Kilby relocation bracket and belt, will it all fit if I have a AEM Cold air intake with that stupid vertical metal separator in the front passenger side of my jeep?
3. Dual Battery
a. Die Hard Platinum P-4 34/78DT?
i. I have AC. I do not want a AC relocation Kit. Can I fab my own bracket and turn them the other way side by side and just miss the AC Lines? Has anyone done this?
4. Battery Isolator
a. Hell Roaring?
i. I think I understand that you want you your winch hooked up to your main battery. I think I want to have all my shit (aux lights, and stereo), wired to a separate fuse block so I only have one large wire going from the battery to the fuse block so I can eliminate all the 12 guage wires to the battery. Is this appropriate?
ii. If I need all the power at once I can switch the batt’s together. Or I can just be using the main batt and have one fully charged for reserve?
I am so sorry I had to write all this crap out. I have spent hours on the forums trying to figure out the best way. This is far as I could figure it.
Thanks in Advance
If you guys can help me dial in the perfect system, i will do write ups
