Could someone with a dual battery 7.3l post a pic of the drivers side battery.

I have 7.3l with single battery.......... I'm thinking about ordering what is apparently a coolant expansion tank(for dual battery set up) which appears to have different attachment/bracket configuration. I also plan to order the battery tray for second battery. Basically..... trying to reconfigure the front quarter of the drivers side engine bay to accept a dual battery (Probably will need to upgrade the alternator also). I want to add the winch whenever it becomes available, some more lights, and would like the extra battery for the truck camper backup.

I'm simply looking for some more detailed pictures of that front quarter section of the engine bay to see how everything is bolted in and configured. I have not been able to find a 2020 OEM Parts list yet.

Thanks, So it looks like the expansion tank and battery tray are integral. I think this may be a job for the stealership. Gonna cost at least a grand if not two verses the $325 factory option.

Good upgrade and virtually a must with a winch. For future battery replacement reference, here is a short list of the top batteries for Ford Super Duty truck applications.

1. XS Power


**NOTE: Looks like XS Power now has Group 65 LITHIUM vehicle batteries.**

Edit / Update -------->



2. Odyssey Extreme


3. NorthStar
