Not sure which forum I should post this in, so feel free to move it if desired. I'm looking for the best supplier/price for a new battery for my '83 Aspencade. I won't likely spend the extra $ for an AGM as it will have a battery tender on it and I hope to be able to move up to a 1500 within the next year or so.

Thanks for your help.

Steve

wally world's price is pretty good,but if you buy the lead acid,just make sure you keep up maintaining the water levels,which even with a battery tender is possible

Walmart's Everstart works just fine. Bought quite a few of them in the past year for ATVs and a bike.

I bought an AGM from O'Reilley's last year, it was a very good investment. It is stronger spinning engine and will not get weak, plus seems like it can sit for weeks and still be strong. So far, really pleased with the slight increase of price, well worth it.
