Re: Battery recommendations?

I had great luck with AutoZone as far as batteries go. I punched a hole in one
accidentally while installing it in my QSW (probably the stupidist thing I've
ever done, DON'T ask me how I did it, I'll never live it down), and they gave
me a new one for free. And, if anything happens to it in the next 2 years, it
gets replaced for free, and after that it's prorated for 5 more years. And it
was only $50. 750 cranking amps or something.... and 450 cold cranking amps.
Pretty good.
