G'day I own a '03 Jackaroo and was wondering if any one knew if the dual battery system as standard is compatible with a deep cycle battery. Can I just remove one and put the new one in its place. Any feed back would be appreciated.

Do you need to change from the standard two cranking batteries setup ? If you are talking about employing an aux battery for driving acccessories, you can put a 700CCA unit (Yuasa do one) into the main (driver's side position) and then opt for any other tyre in the aux position .... but you'll need a controller / isolator in between them. The 700CCa will start it ok, in all but the chilliest situations - might be touch and go in the snow, even with the thinner spec oils. If you don't travel in chilly places, no problems.

Dual Battery system as standard???

Didn't know the Jackaroo came with a dual battery system.
Just two batteries linked in parallel to provide more grunt for starting in some diesel engine models.

If there is no isolator to keep the two batteries electrically isolated then it is not a dual battery system.

If the two batteries are not isolated from each other you should not mix a starting battery and a deep cycle battery.
