although I haven't done it myself I know there are a few guys who do it. Assuming you have the power and hydraulic capacity to do it the main challenge would be electrical issues.
Here are some thoughts on what I would do:
run a separate monitor and wiring harness for the second tank. There would be a little more up front cost, but for fewer headaches and I think it would be worth it. Depending upon section control and prescriptions and your goals in that area I believe it is just too much for one monitor. Get to know 7 pin connectors, ISO connectors, and the ground points. It may seem like a lot, but if a guy takes his time and follows the harnesses and understands the basic theory it goes a long way to getting it going in the field.
Height switch will be needed for the second cart as well. Maybe? you can tee into the original height switch and steal the signal, but may have to add another. not a big deal.
If you can't find any info in the search function here try "agtalk". For harness requirements look at "agexpress" very knowledgable and will make custom harnesses for better than dealer prices.
if you don't run autosteer through the JD monitor and have the old style blockage system. Run both carts through the GS3 2630 and install wireless blockage on your toolbar. This way there may not be too much clutter for one monitor
The physical length of the harnesses may cause problems (as in their is a max length that the harnesses can be before needing to beef them up.) I don't know if that would be a problem, but I bring it up because it "could" be an issue.
