1st Gen Xterra Dual Battery Install


New member

Curious to see what other people have done to their 1st Gen Xterra's to stuff a dual battery system in their rig. Need some pics or suggestions from you all to get ideas.

Replying to follow. Interested in doing the same with my 1st Gen as well. I've thought about doing a cowl air intake/snorkel and placing the battery where the air box is, then using a small solar panel as a maintainer for it. It would only be used for small things like phone, GPS, and other devices needing charged overnight so I wouldn't drain the main battery.
