    Hey Y'all,

    Well its finally time to replace my battery and I was looking around on here and found that the optima series batteries seem to have a great track record and thier statistics seem to be overall the best that I could find. I recently ordered an Optima Yellow Top battery that was the replacement for the stock tacoma battery and I had issues with it fitting in my 2007 V6 Tacoma 4x4 with towing package and SR5 package. I read that some people who replaced their stock batteries with these optimas ran into the same problem as I encountered and I was wondering what I needed to do in order to fit one of these Optimas in my Tacoma. I have seen some members on here running these batteries so I know that it is possible to fit one beneath the hood as well as securing it properly. Any information that y'all have would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Al

    Thanks
