I had a Delco Freedom battery in my 4000Q. The battery apparently developed
an internal leak, and vented itself onto the center differential lock actuator.
I'm back to using an OEM battery. With the battery located next to the
firewall, I get nervous with non-factory venting. The leak not only did in
two center diff. actuators in a year, but it also did a number on the battery
tray and assorted engine compartment paint.

Just my $0.02
