    Sears carry a 805 CCA Group 49 battery in the back


    Group 49 battery is not in the show room but they carry it in the back and will pull it out for you.

    It's the same size and the terminals are in the same location.
    Remember to use the vent hose to connect to your Car's Vent Hose during the install.

    Hey Gwynne, you switched to DieHard after going


    How long did the Douglas battery last?

    Here's your original comment when you went Douglas (see link)
