NOt sure if you already did one or not but i looked into a van box and just built my own with angle iron on the frame rail under the passenger front door and ran my main cable back and grounded the other to the frame. I put the yellow top optimum in it and left the other optima up front pass side. the box is big enough for both under the truck so i plan on moving the other batt under truck into it also one of these days. Frees up tons of space under the hood and looks great on the frame rail though unless you trip and fall you wont ever know its there

Im not sure what problems others are having. I have heard something about that. I run one red top and one yellow top both are 5+ years old and still bump out 1100 CCA. I can leave my system on hitting hard while i work in the yard and still crank up the truck couple hours later with no problem. They say that optimas need to be charged with charger like once a year or something but i have yet to do that and mine work fine. One day i think i will get another yellow top because they are a deep cycle starting batt so you can run high amps off them and they will always crank. If anyone else has probs it would be nice to hear cause i always wondered if it was one or two with a prob or everyone that used them. hope this helps

Yeah I have been wondering that myself, trying to see if someone else will chime in. What's the reasone on one red and one yellow? Do the yellow ones not fit under the hood? Maybe that's why pepole were having issues only running reds.?.
Thanks for the info I. Belive I like your idea and how it is set up. ThT will really free up some room for other bypass filters and such...

I run the red cause it was in my mustang before the truck so i put it in, then had a yellow on sale one day and got it. soon as another yellow go on sale ill get it, as far as size my red an yellow are same size just yellow is deep cycle starting batt, you cant run that thing down its made for trucks with big systems that run alot of amps/subs. yeah take out those batts and the amount of room is rediculous, and batt box under truck fits neatly right under pass door frame rail where the Eseries has theirs

No worries. Hey did you get your truck running after you did the FICM programming. If so hows it run and tow with the new FICM

It still had the same issue after I replaced the FICM with one tuned by ID, so I took it to ford with the stock FICM in it $250.00 later they tell me U0306, P0603. IDS showed incomplete data on the fuel management re-flashed and starts like a champ... sorta. retest the truck and found that the turbo builds 17psi max so they asked to approve another 195.00 for testing, they removed the EGR block off put a EGR valve in it and smoke tested the truck and wanted 1200.00 for replacing the y pipe. I declined, they replaced my block off and I ordered the parts from Wabash (got the link from one of the guy's here) like $200.00 less than what my dealer wanted. and I had surgery before the parts got here so it is still siting in the driveway and a box of parts on the shelf. As soon as I can stand on my foot I will be pulling the turbo and replacing the y pipe.

Thats bummer bro, i see the cast there. Yeah they had a guy on here that has the ypipe for like 50$ shipped or something. I was going to get it but really dont feel like taking ypipe out. Putting that egr cooler block off in there was hard enough, it leaks a little there but not enough to loose boost i guess. I actually just did the ccv mod and cleaned my intercooler and gained 1psi. Hope you get it up and going. Let us know how the FICM goes, im bout to buy one for $300 so i can send it off to get it flashed by ID.
