Paid $ 175.00 for mine. It's a good battery.

Grizzly bear or not there are better batteries at a cheaper price than the optima.

I had this battery for 2 years and abused it thoroughly. It had 2 top posts with wing nuts that rocked and tons more CCA than an optima.

That looks nice. My tube fenders came with a battery tray. I don't think it's sufficient enough though. I'll have to check out that BTF. That thing looks nice.

Sorry about your jeep, Odhinn.

I haven't bought any mods for my jeep 'cause the previous owner did a lot, some of it poorly but I'm working on fixing that. So, I'm getting WF bling!

You have any pictures of this mounted to the fenders? Can you take some if not? I am VERY interested in this right now because it would save me from fabricating something to hide the battery after the tube fender install.

I just bought a lift kit for my 2000 TJ. 3" 4wdhardware kit.

I couldnt pass up the deal, it was a floor display model they were getting rid of cheap!

I got shocks given to me for the lift (used but in good shape) now I'm just waiting to get the extra money for tires and I'll be getting the lift installed. I'm excited!!

Yes it does. We're trying to work out the final details but it should be somewhere around $ 10k per month. He he he...Just kidding.

Let's just say it's been a "good" year.

I haven't posted because I'm not sure what Frank is planning.....but here is my list of "to-do's" for 2007

1. axle upgrade & lockers (of course this includes bigger tires and lower gears)
2. front bumper & winch
3. flat fender
4. roll cage

I've been a broke college student this year:
only thing I could afford was my new transfer case, trailer and a new air freshner

I can't afford any upgrades after spending $1600 to get all the emmission parts that were missing and getting it to pass. I still need to convert back to the mechanical fuel pump from the hack job electric pump. Then its bedliner floor, new front seats, lift, new tires and wheels, lockers and axel. Finally paint, well maybe!
