Pros: Fantastic CCAs. Cranks my old 258 over super fast.
Cons: Mounting the biggest case was a bit difficult.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I love this thing. I never have to worry about running my battery down and my starter spins like a top even on the coldest of days. Definately going to buy another this summer when I set my CJ up with dual batteries.

Price: $145.00
Pros: 800+ CCA
Cons: none
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Since I've bought this battery I have not had any issues. I recently had a non-start/stalling issue with my YJ. The battery would crank the starter for minutes on end w/o losing any power. It took me approximately 3 days of cranking on the starter to eventually lose it's charge. Has definitely proven that the price paid was worth it!
