Default Precedent 6X8 Conversion?

I have an 08 precedent with the 4X12 setup with the old battery bucket with the divider in the middle. I have a chance to swap it for another 08 that has the newer style bucket that will hold the 6-8's. If I do this can I buy 6-8's with a new set of batter cables and be ready to run? I noticed the conversion kit comes with a 4.0 OBC? Do you have to have this?

Why do you want to get away from the 4-12s?

You can't run as long on 4-12's and they cost more than 6-8's to replace! I can get 6 US 8V's for $585 or 4 US 12's for $628 out the door.

What!? Wow... I need to move to Texas.. Never, ever, ever, EVER, have I heard of a set of 12's being more expensive than a set of 8's... Consider yourself lucky those 8Vs are so cheap..... Our "DEALER" cost on those 8's is more than you're paying for a set, and we're 1/4 mile from the US Battery factory.

You'll need to order two 103374801 battery "Hold-Downs" for the conversion. Other than that, it'll go right in. You'll retain the same hold down rod, just the plastic hold down piece must be changed. The battery wire setup consists of four 101795701 wires, and one 1010958 wire. The computer does not have to be changed for this conversion, the 4.0 works fine for either setup.
