4 XS Power SB1000-31 Cap Banks Unboxed and tested in the Tahoe (pics) (video in progress)


Recommended Posts

I have been riding around for about 12 years with (10) Group 31 batteries in the back of my Tahoe.  Before XS Power it was Odyssey 2150's....so i am used to having a lot of weight. Somehow, i managed to do it all these years on some 295/25/26 tires with no problems :D  But lately i have been feeling the itch to make a few changes.  The system works GREAT, always has, but i want to try some of the new stuff that is out.  I am EXTREMELY busy at the shop and don't have time for anything major right now, but since i have a nice row of HEAVY ASS batteries in the very back of the Tahoe, i figured this might be a good place to start.  In other words EASY.  Easy but HOPEFULLY effective.  Oh and 78lbs vs 24lbs....i am saving more than 200lbs on the tail-gate of the Hoe. :)

My eventual plans are: 1 more SB1000-31 under the hood to replace THAT D3100.  Then i am hearing rumors (from a good if not the BEST source) that there might be 14v group 31 batteries coming out soon.  If that is the case, i WILL be running 5 14v G31's and 5 SB1000-31's.  Hopefully some new alternators.  These Mechman's still work great but they have new stuff out now and i want it haha!

 

Anyway, here are a few pictures. I have a 15 minute long before and after video rendering right now and it is going to take way past bedtime to finish.  I will upload in the A.M.  Stay tuned for results! Do caps really help? Find out!

oh also, before you say anything about my ragedy upholstery in the back, it obviously USED to be a lot nicer....but i have been beating the SHIT out of everything you see there for years and it takes its toll.  Just the hatch rubbing on the trim pieces over the years and the bass slap hitting it is enough to wear it out some. :D  But the good news is, the system STILL works great after more than a decade.  Just sayin'!

Looks great, brother! Even after all these years. Can't wait to see what the difference is. I'm thinking about switching out some of my D3100s for these also! Glad to see you are still interested in doing things to the Tahoe!

Still looks damn good..i like the new batterys that are in.Looks good 

That's why they don't deliver.

Yer ass better go sit along the side of the road and wait.

You can't expect them to travel up some dirt road in a hick / back woods town. Thats how horror movies start :D

I explain things very simply and use analogies in terms of Pickles, and grape drink, pool noodles and jackhammers...if you can't put 2 and 2 together there man, There simply is not much more I can do.
