A group 31 will fit into the FJ62 spot with minimal work and, for me, suffices in place of a dual battery set up.

Default $1,700.00!!???

First lithium ion automotive starting battery, brought to you by Porsche. I wonder if the weight savings is worth the price tag? It is certainly gonna be easy to mount just about anywhere...

That thing is sweet. I'm amazed a car battery could be that small.

I was thinking a bank of them in the space of a group 31 would be very cool. Wanna go halfsies Farnham?

Mike/others...did you ever figure out a way to hold down the 31? I'm still trying to figure out how to hold it down. I'm considering welding a bracket up that would bolt to the two top bolts of the radiator frame and would hold the battery down.

I was searching batteries tonight, and ran across this battery reference site: http://www.jgdarden.com/batteryfaq/batbrand.htm


I'm considering the Super Start AGM from Checker's.. O'Riley's.


$139 and the same exact group 34 as the Deka AGM apparently. at least according to a couple Jeep forums I found. Still looking..

Default Which battery?

The fall issue of Overland Journal has a battery test. Their choice is the
Sears Diehard Platinum P4.
Had one battery from Valence mod # U24-12RT at $2,230.00.
Porsche offers it as a factory option.

Bump to the top

Need a new battery in the LX. The Exide Orbital is finally giving up the ghost. Made it 4+ years so not bad IMO.

My BIL works at Sears and they have their "friends and family" sale coming up so I'll probably go with the Diehard Platinum. Hoping the Orbital makes it that long

For those that went that route, which one did you get and any fitment issues with the cables reaching etc?

I'm leaning toward the P3 with the front terminals (makes connecting up the winch handy and per my research these batteries like the Orbitals can in fact handle the load on the front terminals). I saw some folks mention the P4 but a search of the Sears site only lists the P1, P2, P3, P5, and P6 as available

Sears states the P5 is the proper battery for a '97 Land Cruiser fwiw.

TIA

Looks nice, Jeff. What's the difference between group 75 and group 35? I think my 80 is ready for a new one, too. Got home Wednesday night and the starter ran slow when I turned the key.

Hensley has treated me right. I just got 2 2nds for the 70. $30 ea. The Deka agm I had in the 80 was slow starting and it was a year and 5 mos old. Something wasn't right I took it in to them and it tested fine but did not under load. Probably a bad cell, no questions asked they gave me a brand new replacement. those oddessey are nice though.
