Didn't realize you were joking! My old job was retail/ inventory managment and you'd be surprised and some of the things I saw. My apologies!

Deka are made in the USA, so that's why my last battery was a Deka. Not sure how long it will go, but I'm going to put a tender on it since the Scrambler doesn't get driven much and we shall see.

Tenders are a great idea. I use them on everything. Thanx for reminding me. This parts list just does NOT seem to get any shorter!
Glad we're all cool. I sold cars for awhile. People would show up w/bald tires, stereo missing after wanting more money for these new tires, killer stereos etc..Retail is the sux!

I've also learned that sometimes... when people don't agree with you .... its best to hold them down and kidney punch them till they agree with you

Need a new battery and was looking into the Sears Platinum AGM but none of them fit the stock CJ7 battery tray? the group 34/78DT fits length wise but looks to be a bit wide?
The group 35 would fit but the posts are reversed and it seems a bit much in height...

Was at Oreilly's and their super start extreme agm group 34 measures out good but the warranty is a year shorter (3 versus 4 years)

Any input or ideas? (no Mexican Optimas for me right now)

It only hurts while you're breathing..

Die Hard Plat/Odessey


10.9 Inches long
7.8 Inches High
7.875 Inches Wide


Height:7 13/16 inLength:10 inMaintenance Free:Yes Reserve Capacity:100 minTerminal Typeual Termimal Voltage:12 vWeight:41 lbsWidth:6 7/8 inRed Top Optima

10 Inches Long
7 13/16 Inches Tall
6 7/8 Inches Wide

Given the amount of space left in my battery tray (currently have Optima Red Top) I would think the minor size difference would not be an issue with the Die Hard Plat. Measure your battery tray to be sure.

The tray is 6 13/16 wide....looks like the diehard plat. group 34/78dt is too wide to fit and the group 35 has the posts on the wrong side...

I know people on this board run Die Hard Plat/ Odyssey batts on their CJ's. Start a new thread and ask which one fits.
