Battery was going weak recently, plus it was time for an upgrade as I'm adding more accessory's. I was thinking of going to a dual setup, but I didn't want the extra weight plus its beyond my needs. I started researching group 31 batteries then came across X2power, a re branded Northstar. I went with their 27F, fits right in the factory location. Next to do is add some Blue Sea components to clean it up.

Like the build! Looking forward to seeing what sliders and other mods you do.

Hope others will post their builds too

Great build so far. Looking into GXs for inspiration as they're very similar to my rig.

I have a question for you though, which I'm trying to read up on. What exactly are Group 31 batteries? I thought that'd be the size, but in fact it seems as though they're a specific type of battery?

Group31 is the size. I went with the X2power 27f as it is almost the same specs as some group31s and has a great warranty.

Did you add Crawl Control and MTS?

I did not, honestly I don't plan to add it. I don't see it as a necessity at this time or ever.

Small update, RSG Sliders have come in the mail. Super fast shipping and awesome guys to work with! I went with the bare metal flat sliders. Reason, for flat style w/kickout is that our family is growing and it will provide a step for the kid & wife. Got them in bare metal as I will be painting them myself, figured they will be getting hit so I can always touch them up.

Nice, be sure and trim the running boards and fit the sliders, otherwise it'll be a little naked. I wish I had, I just ripped mine off, trashed them, installed sliders, and wondered what the gap was all about till I figured it out, AFTER the trash part lol! Nice rig man

Most definitely will be trimming them up!
