    So I ordered a battery from the dealer online because you get 20% off, but this dealer is about 45 minutes away. We ran some other errands so it was worth the trip. When I went to swap the battery I realized my battery was the larger tow package battery and that's not the I got. I emailed the dealer and he said I can swap no problem. So I went back tonight after work and swapped it. I got home and realized while it's a group 27 it's not the 27f so it's only 675cca and 160rc. the invoice had the 710cca one on it so I did not check the battery but should have. my question is should I even bother going back again to swap this? I think I am just going to install this one in the truck. I only tow my boat and it's only a 16 footer so I don't think the little bit less matters. Any input would be great! thanks!

    most batteries push more CCA when their new than they are rated for. You will be fine, the only thing that may affect you is the life of the battery, but i highly doubt it will

    That's what I figured. The stock is only 575cca & 130reserve. Just wanted some 2nd opinions. Not worth another 1.5 hour round trip. Thanks guys!:eek:
