I installed a 2nd battery in my 99 pickup with a GM battery tray intended for diesel/camper options. Rather than get fancy with isolation wiring, I ran a heavy cable to positive side of battery and connected it to power connection located on red power tap case located at drivers side front of engine. Sounds like you're desperate for more battery power....what are your battery needs for?

Copy that....if you take your truck to any battery shop they can tell you what group will fit and the largest CCA available in that group....usually you'll end up with a DT (dual terminal-side and top) battery, just make sure the top posts don't hit the hood or something. DT's are nice to jump and you can wire accessories to the extra posts. You should be able to get at least 850 CCA in there. Check with your dealer if they have an optional battery tray for your truck.
