Just a quick update:

Ran my truck out of fuel the other day on the side of the road. Put a few gallons of diesel in it and tried to bleed it. Ran the starter off and on for 20 minutes trying to get it to run, battery performed like a champ.

I couldn't seem to get the truck to stay running long enough to bleed the lines. I was forced to trailer it home. I ran the truck ON THE STARTER onto the trailer without any issues (after 20 minutes of cranking on the battery).

Got it home, added more fuel, than cranked on the truck some more until I got it running and bled. These batteries are pretty amazing.

I have an update as well. Interstate might be shafting me on my batteries, so you might be getting a call from me soon.

What are the cca's on these?

It will start the truck, but for your application, I'd still recommend running (2) D2700's.

Unfortunately with the harsh winters he experiences (-30 deg) and it being a diesel truck, 2 would be necessary.

As you can see, most other batteries don't stand a chance.

Man, my house is a pig sty, I could use some help cleaning up...

Unfortunately that is the best I can do on prices. These things are not cheap to manufacture.

Id love to have one, but I cant pony up that much money right now.

Horsepower and drivetrain/steering come first....
