Asked by Jul 24, 2015 at 11:58 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I'm planning the addition of several accessories like lights, a train horn, PA system,
winch, and more.  How and where do I power the new stuff?  Im planning fuse panels,
nice clean wiring, and switches.  But where do I go for more juice?  Add a battery?  
Change up my alternator?  I wanna do this right, and I found some sweet panels with
Painless Wiring......  But again, my main worry is POWER.  Any info on anything I'm
thankful for.

i would start with a dedicated wire from you battery to inside your car...i make them out of a plastic house 110 wall socket..dill a hole add a 3/8 bolt and some nuts.. secure it and you have power..for a start on your project.....get a good gell cell battery i run deep cycle on the street and dry cells on the track.. see this little battery.5x5x5in...it runs more stuff than you would think.. it has 1380 cranking amps..turns over a 14 to 1 big rat.. and its the baby one...also get a good 140-60 amp 1 wire alt...$120.00 and keep me posted..
