There are two sizes, I sure someone will tell you which one, or you could measure the space and get the right size or sizes..


May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

How many does it have?? Our Overlander has 2, the PO let them go dead and they froze and busted. I replace what was there. Group 27's Deep cycle from AUTO ZONE. Heavy about 50 pounds of lead each. I had them in there about a yr only added distilled water once. I still have the Univolt. What size should You buy? Measure the boxes and see what size it will take.

There are three sizes for 12v batteries: Size 24, 27 & 31. I suspect the largest size that will fit in your compartment is a Size 27.

All the posts that say whatever will fit are right, so long as you can get them out after you put them in and there should be a little space around them so they don't rub on the metal box and wear through.

Roger, if the ones you had froze and busted, what happened to the battery acid? If any of that stuff got on the box, it may be corroding. A broken battery is the gift that keeps on giving.
