I went with a cheap Walmart battery and keep a Battery Tender on it whenever it's in the garage. So far the battery has been happy.

Wrong Group Number

javascript:emoticon(':oops:') Sorry, folks. I mentioned the Group 75 battery from my Silverado, off the top of my head. I believe it is actually a # 78 battery. For anyone converting to 12 volt negative ground, this size seems to fit in the tray, has front side terminals, with the ground negative terminal nearest the instrument panel housing. It has no top terminals to short on the underside of the fuel tank. Optimas also come in Group 78 size, with or without top terminals.
