    Done some research, but not finding what I need.

    Time to replace my battery. I have been reading about AGM batteries and can't say I really NEED one, but I do really want a dual terminal battery - sets of terminals on the front and side.

    I don't have a ton of extra electronics, but I have some and I'd like to wire the extras to the other terminal.

    I'm not having much luck finding a dual terminal battery that I'm sure will fit physically and has the right specs. Would consider AGM or Lead Acid, but don't want to spend a ton of time modifying my tray, etc...

    2006 V6 with Tow Pkg.

    I found someone who said they got one of these:
    diehard gold 778dt

    But when I search Sears for that I can't find it. Must not exist anymore.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks

    That looks like the sort of thing I'm looking for. But the Pos/Neg terminals are reversed. I think I'd have to extend my wires to make that work. Each battery only comes one way, right? You can't get the same battery of any given model with the terminals reversed, can you?
