I've been running two D34M Blue tops for my stereo and they work great. I need to add two more for my recent upgrades and have been considering the D31Ms but might just go with the D34M's to match my other ones. My buddy has 3 of the D31Ms and they can really take a beating!

What battery brackets are you using to hold you D34M.

How about the Troll Fury they have on there website. 2 D34M comes in it's own case and you screw it to the floor. Thought about getting that. Or would it be better to go with 2 D31M's hooked together for the stereo?

Checking around on the web and found this web page.
http://www.stealth316.com/2-dynabatt.htm
Found out the Stinger SP1700 I bought 2 years ago was made by Hawker. And I paid about $120 more than I had to. Live and learn.
What does any one know about SVR batts looking at an SVR80-12 for $110.

Also looking at the Dual Pro LS 2400 Lightning series deep cycle. group 27 $165

Any thoughts

Default Better Cheaper Batteries...

A different idea. To make a long story short. I had a old electric fork lift that ATE deep cycle batteries 'cause I didn't want to spend $800.00 - $1000.00 on a real battery. A friend was buying new golf cart bateries. Put his 6 year OLD ones in and it would spin the tires. Next time I needed camper batteries I asked the guy at the local battery shop (very knowledgeale and helpful company) if he would recommend his very best deep cycle or two cheap golf cart batteries. He said by all means the golf cart batteries. Another note of interest. Check the warranty on a deep cycle verses a starting battery. Even the Optimas are only maybe half as long for the deep cycles.
Hope this helps.
Don
