Discontinued product number from Crappy Tire, thats why they don't have it anymore.

That said, I have a crappy tire battery in my car. Been going for over 3 years luckily. When it craps out I'm going to a PowerSource battery.

^^^ I didn't think they still sold them. They're price has gone up though. I got mine a year or two ago for $139 + tax. Still a good price...

yep, there's lots of space there. I've got a Motomaster from Crappy Tire that just wont die! When it does (probably tomorrow now that I've jinxed myself) I'll get an Optima Red or Yellow top from Costco.

oem from the previous owner. cranks over nice an quick, even in the cold. if your having a hard time starting a car because of your sound system I would get a higher output alternator, not replace the battery.

The mastercraft ELIMINATOR lol, $60 on sale, I bought the one that would fit in the battery compartment. Definate loss of CCA but sufficient for a summer vehicle. Also 3 year warranty. lol

Original, I do top it off with distilled water once a year wich is probably why it's still working top notch.
