Howdy folks! I'm new here and need some advice from you well experienced and handy people. I just installed a new "j-strong" top on my rhino withe the radio and fog lights. The factory battery will not withold the juice from it all and have decided to put a optima battery on. Just wondering if I need to use both batteries and wire them both together or take the factory battery off and just use the new optima battery?

Thanks and all of your feedback will GREATLY help me.

What's the reasoning for a separator?

so if your tunes run one battery down, you can still start your rhino.

note: wire the tunes with key off, or your hour meter will run.
