<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: yamahajo</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I was looking at CAT batteries, and was wondering if anyone had them on their PSD? I figure if my motor ever let me down, i could drive home on the starter with that many cca's lol. I was also reading that they made batts for frequent starts, and some for ideling all day and some for running accs for longer periods. Which one would be best? http://www.cat.com/cda/components/fu...7&x=7&id=90282
thanks </div></div>With Group 31 batteries you will need to pull the existing battery trays, including the OEM snorkel/battery box and custom fab two new trays. Also note that those batteries do not have automotive terminals but studs, so you will need to put new ends on the OEM wires. I put Group 31 Commercial Yellow Top Optima batteries. They were a bit pricey but they have not let me done in two years.
