I am getting ready to install a 2 meter and a scanner in my 93 Silverado diesel.  My question is does it matter which battery I connect to for power?

No. They're connected together anyway.

And don't assume your diesel will be noise free. Most of the newer models use electronic injection (vs. mechanical) and can be as electrically noisy as a gas engine. The direct battery connection is a good start.

I made the connection on the battery side of the glow plug relay.  That makes it simple and all you need is a ring terminal.
