I have seen pictures of people running car batteries, after relocating them up front. Running two batteries with an isolater would be a great set up but a little more difficult to do. This would keep your starting battery charged and run the extras from a deep cycle battery.

If you are trying to run a stereo and a couple of extra lights, get the biggest AGM battery that will fit in the stock location.

I like the AGM batteries, I am hooking them up to run my Accecories on my 08 prowler, With a 30 amp breaker and a switch that will let me jump the prowler with out jumper cables. so good luck I don't want the weight of the car batteries or I would of bought one.

The charging system of the prowler can keep up with that big battery while running extras? Or do you leave a trickle charge on?

It may not be able to keep it charged, but it will take quite a long time to run it down

the smaller AGM like 16a the alternator should be able to keep it charged in the day time but not at night with the lights and other stuff on.
Good Luck
