I am wanting to move the battery to the bed..
List:
0ga Wire, lugs, tie downs..
pretty much it right?

Ok now, I looked today..
ground the frame, then go from fuse box to frame. that's all right
Power, go from fuse box and power to starter..

is that all? seems simple I know I have got to be missing something.. lol..

Do yourself a favor and run your main ground from the battery directly to the engine block, then from the battery to the frame and make sure you have rock solid frame to body grounds. Grounding the battery to the frame and the engine to the frame works, but it's not the way top shelf builds are wired for a reason.

Like Texxan said, install a remote kill switch.

find some racers that have done that. they could help. and use big cables. dont use plastic to hold the cable to the frame, after time the plastic will break. use metal brackets. and hide the bat with a box bolted down. make all frame bolts copper or brass bolts, use anti-seize an the threads. before drilling holes check that it wont hit something.
