MBS 2401w Coach Batteries Replacement

I need to soon replace the coach batteries on my 2017 Forester 2401w. I'm pretty much convinced a AGM battery is the best replacement. I found on another post the link below and seems to be a good price. Are there other recommendations? Can anyone confirm positively that a group 31 batteries will fit in the orginal step space of the 2401W?

thanks ....

They fit on mine

2015 Forester MBS 2401R. Here is a picture of the two Crown Group 31 AGM batteries I installed. They fit fine - a little taller than the factory 27's. Dynamax installs the 31's on their Isata 3's I believe with the same step.

Interesting - on my Prism 24G, They go under the step, but they are rotated 90 degrees from your installation.

We have had those batteries in our 2017 2400w for a year. Very happy with them. Sam's had the best price I could find at that time
