I've ran batteries in parallel with no isolator for years without a issue. And guess what. Semis have been doing it for even longer. Isolaters are for people that know not what they are doing and like to spend $
Also. Just replace ur traction bar shackle with some rod ends and you will be good to go. I had 0 binding issues with mine.

yup. diesel pickups have been running parallel batteries for close to 30 years without any problems as long as the batteries are the same size.

rarely in life do you meet a person that will drop everything to help a stranger,
and give the shirt off his back to a friend.
Steve Price was that kind of person.
Godspeed "window licker", the short bus will never be the same with you gone.
U know, I'm not all that impressed with stock 460s.....
I think a stock 360 has more get up n go.
yeah, i bet your stock smog era 460 is a pig but...
97 would be 275ish hp and 400ish ft-lbs stock. highest output for the efi 460's but they down played the numbers because it was the same output as the v10 that was about to replace it. only had 1 fe motor ( pretty stock 390) but my efi 460 would have walked all over that thing easy. it'll move anything you want, hell mine still did on 38's with 3.55's, but don't ever expect to get more than 6-7mpg's hauling anything.

Finally found time to work on the truck some. I took 4 leaves from each side of the the rear suspension which took it back to the standard 8" Superduty leaf pack but I wasn't happy with it still. I ended up removing one more from each side. I was satisfied with the outcome but lost a good bit of lift obviously. I bought longer shackles and got er back level. It rides a lot better too. I picked up the front end too which flexed the rear suspension more but I didn't get pictures of that.
I found a 4 core F350 radiator for cheap that I'm gonna pick up Saturday. Hopefully I'll have time to install that, the electric fan and the dual pulley power steering setup I got from an E350 motor home a while back.
