Question Is Wolf Pup frame strong enough for 2 batteries

Hi,
I have a single axle 2018 Wolf Pup 16bhs, and I'm unsure if the battery area is strong enough for the additional weight. I went from one 12 volt to two-6 volt golf cart batteries - approximately 80 additional pounds including the battery box.

There's two angle irons welded underneath on each side of the A-frame.

Do I need to have additional angle iron welded underneath, or based on experience out there, is the frame and welds strong enough for the additional 80 pounds?

Thank you for your thoughts on this situation.
Bryce

I ordered a second battery with my 18TO. Both batteries and covers sit nicely in the factory battery rack.

Are you concerned about the additional weight, breaking the welds on the angle iron underneath the frame? Two pieces of angle iron with spot welds on each side with the bouncing and movement while driving down the road, yet even off road - is this a concern?

The welds on mine seem sufficient enough for two batteries.
