installed a 12v Odysee PC680 AGM Battery and Victron 24v/12 Volt 70 Amp converter and am using that to charge the 12v Battery. I didn't want the battery in the passenger compartment so I made a battery tray to fit the only area I was comfortable putting it. I put in two 24v relays, one for switched power to the 12v sub system and the other to kill power to the converter when I shut the truck off. The converter is supplying the 12v battery with 13.8 volts and there was no magic smoke so it all appears to be working correctly. Hopefully this is the fix for all the battery ills, swapping batteries every two weeks was not an answer for me.
I also installed 6 inch door speaker to replace the crappy dash 3.5's and my 3D printed cup holder (no more spilling drinks
Took way longer than it should have but that is how it goes with me and wiring.
