When we changed out our batteries 2 8Ds they were 7 year old NAPA batteries.
I figured if they held for 7 years I would invest in a new set of NAPA batteries so
I talked to the manager at the local Napa store and got a pair of 8D batteries for
$350 plus tax. I've known the manager for over twenty years so got a good deal.
These batteries are rated at 1300 CCA each.

1300 cca's is what mine are rated at. It's amazing how much quicker the bus turns over with that much power. I liked the deal so much that I actually ordered my house batteries from him too. 6v deep cycle at 305 Ah each. Got 6 of them for $199 a piece. My dad even bought a new dc for his trolling motor.
