    No worries. May have to get some different battery Tie downs as it was a tight fit putting that back on.

    Many AGM batteries can be discharged 80% (20% left) up to several hundred times. That’s the main reason people buy them, irregardless if it takes 14.7V for full bulk charge. It’ll last longer than two years.

    I'm guessing some of the overlanders have looked into externally regulated alternators. You could change the voltage and charging for the type of battery you have and how you want the charging done. Bulk charging at higher voltage and then ramping down to a float charge for longer periods of time once it's topped off.

    But I'm with the thinking that you really should review how you actually use the truck. I find my free time is no longer taken up by camping and 'overlanding' but my daydreaming certainly revolves around building the right rig for it.

    I've always had good luck with interstate, so I'm going with their MTZ-34R. Looks to be the same footprint as the 24F, but a bit shorter. Seems powerful enough with 1000 CA and 800 CCA and it's got 48 mo warranty.

    24F Northstar (batteries plus branded).

    800+ CCA which is FAR more than the stock battery and much more reserve capacity as well. If you don’t have a lot of lighting and accessories drawing power, 24F AGM will be plenty.

    *Note: considerably faster turnover once stock battery was removed (40k miles on it).

    I’ve been running a
    X2Power Premium AGM BCI Group 24F since May and I just checked it using my Schumacher battery charger and it’s 100% charged. Not sure what my alternator output is but it’s doing a fine job keeping the battery at 100%.

    I dont think thats the case. I think AGM batteries can handle higher voltage, but dont require higher voltage.
