4x4 2 battery setup into a 2wd

Im planing to fit a second battery to my 2wd 95' granvia with a split charge system for camping

I notice there is a fair bit of space near the existing battery, presumably the 4x4 granvias second battery goes here. Do any 4x4 owners think the battery tray could be transplanted to a 2wd or is it all welded up?

Would be ideal to keep the 2nd battery under the bonnet rather than taking up space inside

I can fine any pics under the bonnet of a 4x4 so have no idea how its all arranged, any input would be appreciated

I have a 4x4 1996. No second battery tho. And not enough room for a decent sized one either.

I have 2 4x4 vans and neither have had double batteries, they don't have room either.

The normal Granvia has only one battery but if it is fitted with the "cold climate" option pack it will have two batteries.

goodday mate , saw your queery regards second battery under bonnet. this can be done if you relocate the washer reservoir and make a new base plate. you should be able to fit a 115 amp deep cycle battery. personally i have just extended the battery feed to my battery which simply sits on the floor in a battery box wired up the take adaptors for fridge .computer.lights ect. since i only use the van on weekends this suits my needs.
