I've seen plenty of optima and odyssey dual battery setups but have yet to be able to find a dual platinum setup. How would you figure out if they would fit just as easily as the optima's or odyssey's? Is it just a matter of measuring case size or would there be more to it?

Here's GeoXplorer's setup:

I'm assuming (with out doing any searching) he used the class 34s.

Yellowtop Specs:

Here are the specs for the Diehard:

It appears the the Diehards are .84" or 21.336mm longer.

The answer to your question depends on how you plan to run your wiring and where you plan to install the solenoid.
I think it would be really tight (at least the top battery) but it is doable.

The nice thing with the Oddysey batteries, is that you have access to your headlights without removing the battery :)

Edit: I will confirm my last comment once I finish my install

Yea I saw Geo's writeup.
I'm trying to stay away from the Optima's since they have reputation lately for low quality. (I googled it for a few hours earlier tonight.) I liked the Odyssey but after some searching it just so happens that the same company makes the Diehard Platinum batteries as well, they're the same battery! Hence why I want the Platinum.
