    So, you're using a "like $115" deal you got "like 2 years ago" as a benchmark for what constitutes a decent deal today?

    I'm not interested in spending over $200 for a battery either. Thankfully, this is only $143 which, according to a couple of Internet searches I did, appears to be $30-$40 cheaper than today's going price...

    Yes. Yellow tops are designed to provide the deep-cycling capability required to support accessories like running lights, high-performance stereo/AV system, winches, etc.

    Don't our trucks use either the 27f or 24f depending on towing package?

    I bought a 35 at costco because it was a good deal but the connectors weren't a direct fit. I decided to take it back because I didn't want to hassle with trying to get it to fit.

    Here is the part No's for the V6 engines with tow package directly from Optima's site.

    Oh and that is a good price from Amazon. I have been watching that price for a while now and it does beat most everyone else, like Costco,autoanything and rockauto. But Autoanything says that if you find another price they will match it up to a year from purchase.

    According to Optima, and as reported by taco084gb, the correct Yellow top for our trucks is D35 (8040-218).
