I have the ability to spell correctly, it's just that the autocorrect on my iPad will not permit it.

Deal of the day usually ends at midnight. Sorry you missed it.

Yeah, it was the 34/78dt on sale. I gotta find a junk battery to exchange, I guess. Current battery in Jeep is still good.

damn, i've been eyein' that up, it's on the "list" anyway. Was looking at optima until a fellow jeeper had me looking into the DH platinum. Supposedly optima went or is going downhill? Either way, the specs on the DH platinum seem damn tasty

I signed up for email notifications of when it went on sale, but, wasn't notified.

I just happened to check it before I went to bed last night and caught it just in time.

If you are serious, I'd suggest doing a little reading here and on Pirate as to recent experience with Optimas. Diehard Platinum (Odyssey) much better choice these days.

Are these good batteries? I'm looking to replace mine soon but not too keen on which brands are better. Also, it says this size is incompatible with my 90 YJ. Will I have to mod my battery tray?

They are great batteries. Loving mine. Jeep runs so much better and I can leave lights/music on for hours and start strong everytime (and my music setup consists of 2 10" 250W subwoofers so that should tell you something).
