Will be installing twins soon, and the battery has to be relocated. What is the main purpose of the second battery? I want to remove it now, because when i recieve my package time will be limited for install. Can I just remove it for now, and relocate it later when I find the material to do so? Where can I find the box to relocate?

Summit or Jegs will have the box you are looking for. The second battery is required so you have enough amps to crank the starter, so even a temporary removal is not exactly a good idea.

I believe it's so you have more cranking power. Not sure what will happen running the one battery.

IIRC some guys on here in warmer areas have takin out the 2nd one with no issues. It is for the excess power the glow plugs need to heat up when its colder outside.

if it doesnt get below freezing you can probably get away with one battery. Another option is two gel cel Odyssey batteries will fit in the same space as one battery...
