    Try any auto parts store near you, they should have a perfectly suitable substitute that wont break the bank. For that kind of money you should be able to get a deep cycle battery thats far superior than OEM.
    All the replacement battery trays I know of are to add a second battery to the truck.

    I have not looked at napa. but everstart (walmart), duralast (autozone) do not make the sealed battery.
    even optima are sealed but they say you would have to modify the mounting plate.
    I am thinking of getting the everstart group 48 battery that fits and put the breather tube down under the truck so it lets off the gas under the truck. the guy at walmart would not sell me one that day because of it not designed to fit by the firewall.
    thanks

    Why do you need a sealed battery? Is your original battery dead already?

    ya it will works but you leave any light on for less then 2 min it will not start. I had it looked over by my gm dealer and they said it check OK but as they worked on some other thing it went dead. so they said to put in a new battery but i would not pay $200+ for them to put it in. so went to parts stores and they ether did not have one or $155 to $225 for a new one and it just a stander battery that is sealed.
    They said it had to be sealed because the vapors would go into the heater and into the cab.
    So i got one out of my dads car and it works but does not fit in the holder.
    I just low on money and just want good cheaper battery.

    I've recently read battery reviews and Costco Kirkland batteries rank high. So do the Walmart ones. They both have great warranties and like most batteries are made by the big names. Your car really needs a sealed battery? Sealed like the optima ones that can run upside down and such? That must be new. Either way, Costco sells optima yellow and reds too.

    Have you tried AutoZone? Great batteries, replace them for you at no charge depending on the application.
