Has anyone increased their battery capacity over the stock size batteries? I'm currently running two Northstar AGM Group 48 batteries for a total of 134AH's. Looking to add more without having to add a stand alone battery.

You can put in any battery that will fit and also meets or exceeds the required CA / CCA. You could also frame mount aux batteries.

200+ Ah. Truck is a mobile office at the moment running lots of electronic gear, working for the DoD off grid.

As mentioned anything that will fit.... Look at the Odyssey Extreme series..

I run a pair in my off road jeep, also with a lot of electronics, lighting and more importantly a lot of winching, that pull big amps... And when on the trails we are only running low speed / idling, so we never get a high rpm charge from the alt (136AMP) , and they keep up w my needs...

If you have the in bed 7 way connector in the bed for a gooseneck, it would be very easy to wire in a couple spares the would be charged when running, and capable of sending 25 amps or more back to truck.
