My Nappa guy says he gets the same amount of failures of agm and lead acid and the both seem to last the same . Why spend the extra money ?:drink:
Look at and price the battery cables on a new pickup with all the connections and fuse links.
When I replaced my battery in my 2015 RAM I was going to switch to a standard battery because of the cost.
Then when I realized that there was absolutely no corrosion anywhere on the connection or the cable,
the same week we had just had to replace the cable ends on the NH T6050 which had a T connection on the battery terminal
and the trouble getting that repaired and trying to find the needed cable length to put new ends on it.
No way would I want to try and replicate the factory connection on my RAM it would take a few days to find and order the pieces.
So to me the complete lack of corrosion and required maintenance to use a standard battery it was no choice spend the money.
