    D75/25 Yellow top Optima Fits PERFECT!!! I bought it from remy_battery off Ebay for less than 120... I put the yellow connecting piece to the bottom of the battery and stock hold down holds it in GREAT! If you didnt know I bought an optima from Auto Zone they stated one size fits all it ended up being too tall... I have rockford Fosgate terminals! But if you dont want to mess with your battery tray get this one figured I would let everyone know about this!

    Thanks for the tip, good to know for someone going to mount the battery in the stock location.....but I paid $100.00 Canadian for my Optima (Seconds) battery and mounted it in the trunk. :D

    Here are 2 dumb questions:
    Is the "yellow connecting piece" a spacer plate that comes with the battery?
    Will being a "Deep Cycle" battery cause any problems?


    Thanks.

    Yeah piece came on top of the battery connected to another yellow piece I believe to protect the terminals and from what i read about these optimas that I liked is... You can leave your stang sit for quite sometime and wont have to jump it... And they last really long! No problems here!

    Optimas SUCK!!!

    Only thing good about them is the replacement warranty. I have had 4 in two years.

    Only keep getting them because they are free.

    Other than that your standard Motorcraft is a far better battery for the money.
