Anyone have anything newer as far as AGM replacements for the stock driver's side main battery? I'm pushing 6 years on my OEM one now and think I'd like to do a preemptive strike b4 I find myself sitting on the first cold morning

What about these?

Has anyone nailed down the correct way to remove spare battery and secure or delete all hot wires?

I found a really nice light weight lithium ion motor cycle battery. Weighs 6.2lbs and has 625 cold cranking amps. I know this is a little lower that the factory battery but realistically should work just fine! It comes in at 319.95 which might be a little rich for some people, but compared to comparable lithium ion batteries that's a steel!!!

So it looks like you might have installed this one:

?

How has it held up?

the battery plus this.... Only one wire left that I taped and tied up good. Everything else was plugs.
Everything seems to be working fine.

My car has had both stock ones replaced with interstste ones back in 2016, so they only got 4 years out of the stock ones in tx heat. Both of them have decent output now but i do notice that the motor doesnt turn over real strong. Kinda sounds like a stock starter on a high compression motor.
