I want to replace my current battery with the most CCAs I can have within the confines of the stock battery box holder. Mine is right arounnd 600 CCAs now and I want to upgrade it among other things.

What is the brand you are using, how many CCAs and I need it to fit in the stock location with no modifications if possible.

Thanks guys!

Not sure what the size of the battery box in a S&S is, but I've been quite happy with an Optima blue top in my 96.

Where are you located? Cabelas has a great 1000CCA starting battery and a 2 year full replacment warranty....

I purchased an Interstate 24MXHD (http://www.interstatebatteries.com/cs_eStore/Products/RT/PID-24M-XHD%28Automotive+Truck%29.aspx?dsNavigation=Nrc~id-3|id-5%2CN~4283764515&Title=Marine+R%2FV+-+24+Months+-+800+CCA) this year and have been very pleased so far.
