I still have my original battery...well I better, its only been a year. But when I replace it I'll just get the specs on it and get one the same or better...ie CCAs  & aHs...and physical size.

I had to replace mine on my Zforce 800 and i went with this one - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0022XTZO0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It has slightly higher CCA's and Ah's and it just barely fits LOL.  I have not had a problem yet with it ....but im also running 2 of them so i dont suspect I will.
I can imagine a world completely at peace.  A world where there are no weapons, no war, and no violence at all.  And I can imagine us taking over that world because they would never expect it.

I hear that brand and Odyssey 925's being mentioned a lot on Google searches... So you have to add the acid and give a full charge upon receiving this one?

Correct, you do have to fill it with the supplied acid and toss it on a charger when you get it. Not a big deal though.  I have had the Odyssey 925 in the past in another SxS and it was in there for a couple years and worked GREAT.  I cant say a bad thing about either of the batteries except the Odyssey cost quite a bit more.  Now will it last longer? It might but I can't say yes or no because it neither has ever failed me.  IMO if your on a budget (like most of us are) the link I posted above is more than adequate and works flawlessly.

Yes you can still use the tie downs per normal.  Its just a tight fit.  Nothing wrong with it being there.
