Default Grp 24 Batteries And Battery Boxes

Wow...never thought I would have so much trouble finding a GROUP 24 BATTERY to fit a Gil Marine Style Bracket.

All of the group 24's I have looked at have the lugs at edge of battery (would interfere with top bracket).

Anyone using group 24s and what trays.

I have not bought either yet so I am looking for SMALLEST LIGHTEST STARTING BATTERY.

I do not want to spend the $$$$ (I NEED 4 ) for optimas doesnt seem worth it from what I have heard from battery suppliers.)

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
750 CC or 1000 MCA

Dude,

I have always had good luck with the sears die hard deep cycle marine batteries and if I remember correctly they fit the GIL trays just fine. You can't beat the warranty on them either. Lots of friends of mine use the interstates, but I stay with my die hards. good luck

I use die hards too. They fit my Eddie Marine Battery tray. They are cheap enough to replace every two yrs.
