    Default 4500 battery

    I need to replace the battery on my 2006 4500.
    looks like if I remove the air cleaner canister and hose, maybe I can just reach in and pull the old one straight up and out. or is there an easier way ? remove front grill or... ? just thought I would ask before I skin my knuckles.

    any recommendations on what size/ type to replace it with ?

    We use the Interstate 31P-MHD battery. It is a perfect fit and has plenty of cranking amps.

    There really is no easy to do this job. The grille being out really gives better access.

    The best way to get the battery out is taking the 5 small bolts out of the red sheet metal under the grill and removing the horn or bent it up a little. Then you can roll the battery out the front.

    Remove the grill. It is really not that difficult. Going out the top is nearly impossible.
