Yep, it coupled with the other two batteries in my truck made it all the way back with the alternator doing zero charging. P-Nutty.

It was awesome. I didn't think it would work.

I brought out both of my blems and used one to run the camper for 2 nights and then swapped in the second battery for the next two nights...I don't recall the exact numbers but both batteries still had a decent charge after the trip.

As for using either as my main battery in the 80? On my blems they ground off the regular battery terminals so IMO it would be more work than it would be worth to use it in the LX as my primary battery

?? What did they leave you with? For $2.59 I just bought posts that will thread onto the 3/8 bolt.

you just use the threaded posts. Even new ones don't have battery terminals in most 31 agm configurations

Ahh - I didn't even realize they sold posts that thread over the top of the small studs. Good to know
