i have an interstate battery now but i dont like how it leaks water and battery acid at times, so i was considering a dry cell or gel cell, yellow top battery. Has anyone done this and if so what battery do you recomend. Was there any fitment issues?

P.S. I did a search already but i didn't find what i wanted.

THe orbital yellow tops should fit pretty decently, there's a lot of space in the battery area to modify the tray if necessary. Don't know where you live but measure the battery you have in there, should be a group 42 and go to an auto parts store and measure their yellow tops.

i know a few people who have actually gone to using dry cell batties, some even went as far as going with motorcycle batteries , to reduce weight, even though i dont agree with it, because it cant be enough to crank
